Ate here the three evenings we were resident in the hotel. Food is amazing! Beautifully presented and did not have to wait long for each course to arrive.

we met family here for lunch in the brasserie, the menu was surprising to say the least, everything is covered in sauces, and heavy, no real light options or fresh delights. The room is tired and has the feel of a retirement home! The staff...More

  • This restaurant is at The Bedford Hotel
Historic hotel at the gateway to Dartmoor. Built by the Duke of Bedford on the site of Tavistock Abbey where the very first Cream Teas were invented and are still served today. The hotel oozes with charming features which hark back to a gentler time and its location provides guests with a close walk up on to the Dartmoor National Park.
