With crackling log fires & cosy old-fashioned charm, this hotel is as traditional as Devon clotted-cream tea. It’s beautifully located, sitting snugly in the heart of Dartmoor beside the West River Dart. The Tors restaurant deals in wood panelling, clothed tables, hunting pictures & knock out views & the menu matches the surroundings. Dinner is the main event (lunch is a lighter crowd-pleasing affair - also served in the bar & lounge), with skilful cooking inspired by the abundant local larder. Witness a fillet of Dartmoor beef served with wild mushroom ravioli, oxtail jus & boulangère potato, or perhaps a lighter offering of black bream fillet accompanied by saffron gnocchi, braised fennel & spinach. A chocolate & Grand Marnier fondant or vanilla crème brûlée might deliver a classic finale.
