local experiences

Divine dining

Decide if you’d like to fend for yourselves or have the hotel owners keep you fed and watered.

If you opt for the former, all you need for a full English and more will be left in your fridge and you can ask for a home-cooked meal to be left in there too for your first night (for an extra charge).

If you choose the latter, the chef (and co-owner) Jo Gossett will whip up breakfast for you in the morning, pack your lunches (£15 a guest with three days notice) and serve home-cooked British classics (£25 a guest) in the evening.

Lunches might include sandwiches and snacks or salads, such as seasonal veg with couscous, and for dinner expect the likes of 12-hour-roasted Dartmoor lamb with salsa verde and salad, and dark-chocolate-and-cherry fondant cake.

Sip & Savour

If you’re staying on the ‘catered’ rate, you can pour yourself whatever you like from the fully stocked honesty bar in the Snug and tot up what you owe at check-out (if you want to bring additional wine, there’s a small corkage fee of £10 a bottle). Try the local biodynamic wines or beer, cider and some spirits sourced in the southwest. 

Otherwise, the bar will be cleared out so there’s plenty of space for you to bring your own booze.
