Wherever you decide to sit in our hotel restaurant you’ll have a spectacular view of the sandy beach, rolling surf, rugged North Devon coastline and Lundy Island. It’s west facing too, which means you can enjoy glorious sunsets over dinner.
We serve well cooked, classical English dishes with a few modern European influences thrown in for good measure. With the sea on one side and North Devon countryside on the other, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to high quality local ingredients. Our venison and lamb comes from Exmoor and our fish comes in fresh from Brixham.
High tea is available for our younger guests.
Dress Code: We respectfully request that guests refrain from wearing jeans or trainers during dinner.
Each afternoon we serve delectable dreamy Devon afternoon teas – with freshly made scones, local clotted cream and delicious strawberry jam. Dependent on the time of year you can enjoy your tea either on our sun trap of a terrace, the lawn or in our comfy lounge. Lunches and light bites are also available throughout the day.
Hanging in the hotel is a framed black and white photograph of a white-jacketed waiter serving martinis to a glamorous couple in the Watersmeet Hotel bar. By way of a ‘nod’ to the hotel’s elegant past we have recently reintroduced Cocktail Hour – so now you can enjoy a range of classic cocktails once the sun has passed over the yardarm.
