Had a beautiful 3 course set menu for a weekend lunchtime here. The food was fantastic - beautifully cooked, presented and balanced. The staff were super friendly and professional. The grounds and setting are just lovely. Would highly recommend.

The food was superb and staff very attentive. We stayed 3 nights, if we had stayed longer I would have preferred the menu to change.

A recommendation from some friends who used to be locals in this part of Devon had given us the impetus to try out this off-the-beaten-track restaurant, and we hoped that it would at least confirm their opinion of it. The dining room was in keeping...More

Comfortable and elegant setting for excellent hospitality. Thank you!! I enjoyed the vegetarian menu while others praise salmon and steak. We then retired to adjoining sitting room for coffee and brandy in front of a blazing fire. Most enjoyable evening

Description
A beautiful Jacobean manor house deep in the Devon countryside, Lewtrenchard Manor offers luxury dining in a sublime setting. Dating back to the 1600s, the Manor has an interesting and varied history, a fact that can be seen in every nook and cranny throughout the hotel and dining rooms. One of the finest restaurants in the county, the Lewtrenchard Manor restaurant is overseen by Chef Matthew Peryer who learned his trade in high quality Michelin stared establishments. The menus make the most of the best of Devonshire produce while employing the methods and flavour combinations of chic modern European cuisine, earning the restaurant its reputation. Lively and relaxed, Lewtrenchard Manor is a superb place in which to indulge in the very best food and, indeed, delightful wines from the extensive cellar of old and new world labels.
