Review on Lewtrenchard Manor
Standing idyllically in its own gardens and parkland, Lewtrenchard Manor is a proud, many-gabled Jacobean mansion complete with mullioned windows, superb carvings, fabulously intricate ceilings, huge oil paintings and seemingly acres of panelling. It now does duty as a top-notch country house hotel with an international reputation but a totally relaxed demeanour.
The hotel may be in the remote reaches of Dartmoor, but the kitchen manages to procure a prodigious amount of home-grown and local produce from a trusted network of suppliers (including fish from the West Country ports and seasonal game from the moors).
Fixed-price menus reflect what is available and the results are guaranteed to tantalise the palate. Sharp modern themes colour just about every dish, whether it's seared tuna loin with red pepper dressing, pickled tomato salad and marinated anchovies or roast duck breast with hon shamsi mushrooms, Brussels leaves, sweet-and-sour onions and red wine sauce.
Desserts maintain the momentum with the likes of liquorice parfait, poached pears and pain d'epice ice cream or brioche and apricot pudding with mango and mint salsa. The wine list is one of the finest in the West Country, a glorious collection of top-pedigree French classics and daring stuff from the New World.
