Handsomely repurposed as a restaurant, bar and café, this all-day venue in The Castle Hotel makes a real effort to appeal as much to locals as it does to hotel guests. In the morning, the kitchen dishes up luxury breakfasts such as French toast or eggs Benedict alongside takeaway Devon-roasted coffees, while during the rest of the day hearty dishes such as slow-cooked venison and smoked-bacon pie or classic fish and chips rub shoulders with sandwiches, healthy salads and good-value set menus. Warm lighting and vibrant, colourful paintings on the white walls help to mitigate the slight conference-centre feel of the main dining room; make a beeline for the tan leather banquettes – the restaurant’s best seats. Don’t miss a pre-dinner drink at the bar, with its jade-coloured tiles and high, studded-leather stools – a great spot for a well-mixed G&T. Sunday roasts are also a popular draw.
