The Rams Head Inn
South Street, Dolton, EX19 8QS
Afternoon tea in the secret garden, exquisite cuisine, stunning views of the surrounding countryside and more awaits you at The Rams Head Inn. This enchanting 17th-century coaching inn can be found on the outskirts of the village of Dolton, between the beautiful Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks. As well as boasting stunning surrounds, this eatery has been awarded two AA rosettes for its culinary excellence. Under new ownership since April 2018, the restaurant’s menu changes daily to incorporate the best possible ingredients; there’s always a tempting new dish to try. Discover beetroot-cured salmon gravlax, and pan-fried rack of lamb with flavoursome pistachio and mustard crust and mint jus. That’s not to mention the puddings – indulge in the likes of Valrhona moelleux au chocolat, or perhaps profiteroles oozing Chantilly cream with chocolate and salted caramel ice cream. It’s not just the food that’s worth shouting about – this buzzy establishment is also an idyllic place to stay. To really make the most of The Rams Head Inn, book one of the cosy boutique bedrooms and enjoy the perfect weekend getaway. Modern comforts combined with chic antique touches gives this establishment a luxurious home-away-from-home feel. Pop in for a quick drink after a dog walk, or visit for one of the evening events like gin and canapé night – either way, a warm welcome awaits.
