British, Traditional Restaurants in Devon
. The Old Inn
British, Traditional restaurant in Drewsteignton
“Wonderfully tasty food is served impeccably in a homely atmosphere” at Duncan Walker (ex-Gidleigh Park) and Anthea Christmas’s restaurant-with-rooms, on the edge of Dartmoor. For one reviewer, the “personal service” starters with an “Ideal” reception by “two friendly golden retrievers” – though “with just three tables in a small room” (and 17 covers total) you can’t help but snoop on fellow diners.
. Northcote Manor
British, Traditional restaurant in Umberleigh
Burrington - EX37
“Very pleasant grounds for ambling around” set the scene at this “lovely” old manor house hotel in rural North Devon. Richie Herkes’s accomplished cooking – including a ‘gourmet’ tasting option with wine matches – is of “super quality” (and the lunch option here is “a steal”).
. South Sands Hotel
British, Traditional restaurant in Salcombe
Bolt Head - TQ8
This “super beachfront hotel restaurant” just outside Salcombe makes “a perfect place to relax with the family”; “the view is hard to match”, but the classically oriented food can be “great”, and there’s an “interesting wine list” to go with it (plus regular special themed evenings).
. Start Bay Inn
British, Traditional restaurant in Torcross
2016 Review: A beachside pub where the “quality and price is unvarying” even on repeat visits; it's particularly rated for some “outstanding” battered fish.
. Elephants Nest
British, Traditional restaurant in Mary Tavy
“A real find on Dartmoor”; this “really lovely” 16th century inn offers “a totally delicious treat” in a “good value pub cooking” mould; change may be afoot however – new chef Richard Greenway (formerly of Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons) apparently has ambitions to create fancier fare.
. River Cottage Canteen
British, Traditional restaurant in Axminster
Trinity Square - EX13
This branch of the TV chef’s buzzing communal dining rooms continues to put in a steady performance: “a good place for lunch – especially with children” (who can profit from the notably virtuous kids’ menu).
. The NoBody Inn
British, Traditional restaurant in Doddiscombsleigh
2017 Review: “The most idyllic setting” and an extensive wine list add to the charms of this out-of-the-way pub, near Exeter: “perfection on a sunny day”. The food hits mostly highs with the odd low, but if solace is required, it’s at hand in a huge wine list, and a range of 250 whiskies.
. The Pig on the Hill
British, Traditional restaurant in Westward Ho
Hilltop pub-with-rooms on the Devon coast (formerly a cowshed, apparently) serving local ales, traditional British grub and roasts on Sundays.
. Belmont Hotel
British, Traditional restaurant in Sidmouth
The Esplanade - EX10
