This lovely historic house and estate is in a unique position with Dartmoor National Park on its doorstep, and the coastlines of Devon and Cornwall not far away. Sitting in the oak-panelled dining room at a beautifully laid table, we knew lunch was going to be special. To begin, the friendly and informative staff served us three different breads along with an amuse-bouche of wild mushroom velouté. Afterwards, I went for the starter of crab ravioli in langoustine foam, while my partner chose the poached duck egg, accompanied by asparagus and Hollandaise sauce. She followed with citrus-crusted skate wing, served on a bed of crushed new potatoes and shrimp butter, while I was taken with the chicken breast, beautifully offset by charred corn and garden vegetables. We couldn’t resist sampling from the dessert menu and opted to share the chocolate and raspberry delice with raspberry sorbet. Every dish was full of flavour and imaginatively presented.

After the meal, we took a stroll around the grounds and gardens where afternoon teas were being served, and also had a peek into the walled vegetable garden, where all the herbs and most of the vegetables for the restaurant are grown. The Manor’s diary of events includes wine tasting dinners, barbecues, a kitchen garden walk and talk with the head chef, and Christmas day lunch. It is also an ideal setting for a romantic wedding.
