The Dining Room at Saunton with its two AA-rosette status and enviable views of miles of world biosphere dunes and beach, is oozing art deco glamour. Open for both lunch and dinner every day of the week, our menus present British classics showcasing the finest in local produce, beautifully cooked and presented.

Head chef Mathias Oberg has the CV of aspiring chefs’ dreams, cooking at many feted, multi-Michelin starred restaurants across the world. Luckily for Saunton, he’s decided to leave the frenetic buzz of service at London’s Shard to cook by the beach. He and his team create relaxed contemporary dining, that’s served in style.

You’ll enjoy our fabulous wine list too, and our special selection which has been curated by the Sunday Telegraph’s wine expert Susy Atkins and The BBC’s Saturday Kitchen.

We also won the 2015 Conde NAST educational excellence in wine award.
