We went for a mid-week celebratory family dinner. The dining room is dark and small, and the atmosphere was strained as everyone spoke in hushed tones. The food was a good average although the portions were small. But the service was painfully slow, and although...More

Lewtrenchard is a brilliant place to stay. Great staff, great food and perfect location. Having said that you should know a few things. Firstly to get to the manor house you really need your own transport. We had a rent-a-car and so no issues -...More

The food was to die for. Delicious and so beautifully presented. The service was just right and done so in a friendly and professional way. The complimentary tasters were a surprise and gorgeous. Can't wait to go there again!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We have been invited by friends to have a Devonshire Cream Tea but have been told that there is a strict dress code. We are neither formal nor smart folk. Can anyone help? Do you have to wear a suit or tie? Would women get away with trousers? I am afraid we are clean jeans and sweater types, especially at the weekends.

I have visited a few times now and normally dress "smart casual". I think you will be welcome whatever you wear (within reason! )

  • This restaurant is at Lewtrenchard Manor
A beautiful Jacobean manor house deep in the Devon countryside, Lewtrenchard Manor offers luxury dining in a sublime setting. Dating back to the 1600s, the Manor has an interesting and varied history, a fact that can be seen in every nook and cranny throughout the hotel and dining rooms. One of the finest restaurants in the county, the Lewtrenchard Manor restaurant is overseen by Chef Matthew Peryer who learned his trade in high quality Michelin stared establishments. The menus make the most of the best of Devonshire produce while employing the methods and flavour combinations of chic modern European cuisine, earning the restaurant its reputation. Lively and relaxed, Lewtrenchard Manor is a superb place in which to indulge in the very best food and, indeed, delightful wines from the extensive cellar of old and new world labels.
