Teign House Inn
Set in the stunningly beautiful Teign Valley and with its own small campsite by the winding river, Teign House Inn is steeped in local history. Its simple rustic charm has genuine integrity, dating back to when it began as the wages house for the local tin mine.
For a cosy evening meal it was the perfect place for us. The menu offers a wide variety of crowd-pleasing dishes as well as an exciting daily specials board featuring seasonal dishes. An Asian-inspired menu was a surprising addition and tempted me with a choice of delicious curries full of exotic ingredients.
I began with Thai fishcakes served with crisp herb salad and sweet chilli and lemongrass sauce, while my partner chose the vegetable spring rolls, which were fresh and packed full of flavour. For the main course, my partner opted for the sea bass and crevette salad. The fish was freshly prepared and cooked to perfection, served with a Niçoise-style salad, which was very satisfying. I continued the Asian theme with chicken Thai jungle curry. The curry was beautifully spiced and served with sticky rice. After a long debate over which dessert to choose from the tempting selection, we decided to share the baked meringue served with ice cream and rich berry compote, which was so moreish we wanted to order another portion.
