Review on The Edwardian Grill, Bovey Castle
The latest addition to Peter de Savary's elite collection of luxury retreats across the world, Bovey Castle is surrounded by the 368 square miles that make up Dartmoor National Park. After a serious refit in 2004, it's now a country hotel to be reckoned with.
Guests staying at this opulent Jacobean-style mansion might think they are taking part in an informal house party on a grand scale, with the bonus of just about every country pursuit you could imagine - from archery to falconry.
Sip a cocktail in the lively Piano Bar before progressing to the Edwardian restaurant - a stunning room done out in 1920s Art Deco style with hand-painted wall coverings, mirrored pillars.
Seasonal pickings from the estate are teamed up with plentiful supplies of local produce for a repertoire of dishes with a strong seasonal thumbprint. Expect dishes like grilled quail with glazed apples, black pudding and crisp pancetta, sea trout with champ, sweet peas, samphire and citrus butter sauce, plus desserts like lemon and yoghurt mousse with pink grapefruit and thyme. Take a tour of the wine cellars and marvel at the awesome collection of aristocratic vintages before picking your selection.
