Review on Tarr Farm Inn

Occupying its own secret world, surrounded by 40 acres of woods and moorland in the depths of Exmoor National Park, this sixteenth-century riverside inn sits just above the famed Tarr Steps. It makes an ideal base for exploring the sights of North Devon.

Exmoor game and lamb, Devon Red Ruby beef and West Country seafood figure prominently on the menu, whether you are visiting for any informal family lunch or a special dinner in the main restaurant. Flavours are drawn from far and wide, so you might see seared scallops with Puy lentils, mild curry and Chardonnay sauce alongside braised meatballs on a pea pancake with onion jus.

Among the choice of mains, look for fillet of sea bass with pressed leek terrine, mussel and chervil sauce or roast saddle of local venison served with bubble 'n' squeak, a miniature venison pie and game sauce, while desserts might feature sticky date pudding with toffee sauce or pannacotta with poached plums. The food is supported by a well-chosen, 100-bin wine list that spans Europe and the New World.
