Watersmeet Hotel & Restaurant
Offering magnificent panoramas of Woolacombe beach and award-winning cuisine in both the restaurant and the bistro, Watersmeet is one of the finest coastal hotels in Devon. Watersmeet’s cuisine is modern British in nature, with intriguing European influences.
The fare hails from local traders, with venison and lamb procured from Exmoor, while fish is freshly sourced in Brixham. Delectable options in the bistro include wild mushroom and tarragon risotto, and Barnsley lamb chop with redcurrant sauce, Dauphinoise potato and sugar snap peas. The restaurant offers a three-course table d’hote menu, with starters such as celeriac and Bramley apple soup, and marinated pork tenderloin accompanied by homemade faggot, roasted parsnip and creamed cabbage to follow. Light bites and lunches are available throughout the day, and when the weather is warmer, seafood platters can be enjoyed on the spectacular terrace, getting you even closer to the sea, as can cold beers and cocktails. Alternatively, guests can soak up the sun while indulging in afternoon tea – a treat of freshly made scones, strawberry jam and Devon’s own clotted cream.
Whether you’re dining in the restaurant or bistro, basking in the sunlight on the terrace, or simply reclining with a paper in the lounge, there are incredible vistas on show. Surrounded by natural beauty, be it the coast or the countryside, every visit to Watersmeet is sure to be a delight.
