The website completely undersells this restaurant ( not just a pub). Maybe the problem is that most people come here for a pizza which I am sure is lovely. But the rest of the menu is absolutely first class. I have just had one of the best meals this year. The strips of tender beef brisket were outstanding served on a bed of leaves soaked in mild chilli and pomegranate seeds. Superb. Then the Dartmoor lamb in a mild yoghurt spiced sauce on peppers and other tasty vegetables. This was two dishes which I have never had before anywhere and both were outstanding. Finished with with a mixed offereing of peach Melba and Eton mess. Lovely. Nice bottle of Valpollicella and hot espresso to finish off. First class service. Pulled pork in brioche bun, like a small burger was excellent and lovely Moules frites all first class. Chips were huge and divine.
Chef Nigel deserves the highest acclaim for this. If you are staying at Bovey Castle go here one night. Book as it is a limited table restaurant by phoning. Do not email. £85 before tip. Rounded up to £100 for sheer excellence. Be sure to go here.
