Colin, Chris, Peter and the rest of team at The Thatched Cottage Restaurant are proud to share their skills and passion for classic cuisine in the relaxed setting of this charming 16th-Century former farmhouse. They are fast gaining a reputation for providing a dining experience of the highest standard, and their excellent restaurant is well worth seeking out - perhaps take a country drive and make use of the large car park at the rear.

Dishes here convey a sense of fun and surprise, both in presentation and taste. A perfect example of this was my starter - crayfish and white crabmeat creme brulée, perfectly complemented by a sweet and crunchy, wafer-thin sesame and poppy seed tuille and sweet chilli sauce. The divine main courses included a deliciously pink honey-glazed duck supreme with stir-fried vegetables, hassleback potatoes and a ginger and spring onion salad. A tempting fish option was the fresh halibut steak with braised fennel and dill cream sauce, while the wild mushroom ravioli with Parmesan and spinach cream was one of several excellent choices for vegetarians. The originality and excellent presentation continue through to dessert; we sampled the exquisite iced pistachio nougat, served with a tuille biscuit - it arrived looking like an elegant yacht sailing in an intensely flavoured sea of strawberry and mint jus. This just might be South Devon's best-kept secret - but with such a friendly welcome and absolutely delicious, skilfully executed food, word is sure to spread.
