Devon is no stranger to fine-dining restaurants. Dotted around the picturesque county, you’ll find Gidleigh Park, Lympstone Manor and The Olive Room to name just a few. Now though, tourists and locals have another fine-dining establishment to add to their to-do list, thanks to the arrival of Àclèaf. 

Àclèaf is a fine-dining restaurant headed up by chef Scott Paton at five-star country manor house Boringdon Hall outside Plymouth, which comes complete with cosy bedrooms and a state-of-the-art spa. 

The restaurant, which is open to both hotel guests and non-residents, is found in the property’s historic main house, with the dining room taking up an intimate and refined space within the venue. The development of Àclèaf was no small feat however; it is the result of a year’s worth of research by Paton, whose aim is to showcase the finest of carefully sourced British produce.  

Àclèaf exclusively serves a four-course signature menu and a six-course tasting menu (including a vegetarian version), which are paired with a wine list that champions bottles from England. The restaurant opens in the latter half of the week and the two tasting menus cost £80 for four courses and £95 for six. While not exactly a cheap eat, the prices at Àclèaf are significantly lower than those at some other fine-dining Devon restaurants serving tasting menus.  

Paton has a long list of accolades to his name, including a Caterer Acorn Award and winning Best Chef at the Food Magazine Reader Awards. Speaking about the launch of the restaurant, Paton commented: “I’m thrilled to be launching Àclèaf. Guests can expect a culinary journey led by the bounties of produce available to us in Devon. Àclèaf hopes to present a uniquely immersive dining experience in the South West, a place where guests can feel at ease in the restaurant team’s hands and hotel’s historic surroundings.”
