Autumn Adventures in British Cuisine 

Embrace glorious autumnal gastronomy: October’s dazzling bounty is showcased in our two AA rosette Art Deco restaurant where head chef Mathias Oberg (pictured) utilises the rich deep flavours associated with the British harvest time.

Nothing expresses hearty autumnal living quite like classic dishes which is why we’re delighted to have the skilful touch of this seasoned chef leading our talented kitchen team. Mathias has the CV of aspiring chefs’ dreams, having cooked in many feted multi-Michelin starred restaurants across the world.


The Dining Room, with its period chandeliers and awe-inspiring views is where you can leisurely feast on juicy Exmoor steaks, the daily catch landed by South West fishing crews, gorgeously succulent game and veggies picked from the area’s fertile fields.

The Terrace Lounge is a more casual spot where you can feast your eyes on glistening sands and glassy waves, under a canopy of endless sky, backed by the undulating beauty of Braunton Burrows. Against this totally awesome backdrop, tuck into the fall’s yield of sumptuous ingredients in a great selectionof small plates, sandwiches and soups from the Light Bites menu.

Afternoon Tea and Cream Teas are what holidays are all about, right? Plump for an elegant traditional afternoon tea or sample the county's special: a Devon cream tea complete with warm fluffy scones, thick clotted cream and fruit-laden jam.

Room Service is always an option if you just want to chill.
