Nestled on the fringes of Dartmoor National Park, the Great Western at Bovey Castle epitomises tranquillity with its rural setting. Guests can enjoy classic British food in a relaxed dining room that recalls the allure of the restaurant’s Art Deco origins.
The Great Western menu features locally produced, exceptional food, all of which is beautifully presented. Scallops with an emulsion of cockles, clams and oyster are a spectacular starter while the roast suckling pig with confit turnip and spiced quince makes for a sumptuous main course. The impressive wine list at Bovey Castle near Newton Abbot is filled with meticulously sourced bottles.
A delectable array of desserts includes warm banana soufflé with corn ice cream and malt toffee sauce, and a creative chocolate tree stump with lime and cardamom.
Guests can pre-arrange transport to this fine dining restaurant in Devon with the hotel. Newton Abbot Train Station is a 40-minute drive from Bovey Castle.

My wife and I had afternoon tea. There were various disappointing things on the day. Sugar bowl was dirty on outside, bread not soft. Crumbs were in creases of chair and on the floor. There was also another table set ready for guests which had a lot of crumbs under the table/chairs. (General dirty appearance) When walking onto the veranda afterwards there was dog poo directly in front of us! For a 5 star hotel general appearance was tired and dirty. Whilst we paid the 12% on top of the bill, in afterthought wish we had not.

We enjoyed an afternoon tea sat on the terrace over looking the beautiful grounds of Bovey Castle. The staff were very attentive to our needs and happy to oblige by bringing our booking forward by half an hour. The afternoon tea itself was very good, maybe a little heavy on the sweet, perhaps could have done with slightly more savoury. We couldn’t manage all the cakes, however the waiting staff were more than happy to box them up for us to take them away with us.

Upon entrance you immediately experience the tranquillity and beautiful scenery. With the beautiful weather we enjoyed sitting outside on the terrace from which we had amazing views of the grounds and surrounding park! The staff was very friendly and helpful but in a very modest way. Definitely a reason to drive some extra miles!

Beautifully set out restaurant in a grand hotel. Food was of a very high standard, though we have had better for less money. We had the tasting menu with accompanying wine. Every course had a well balanced taste & texture. My only one gripe of the meal, was that my partners lamb was rarer than mine....mine was still good, but hers was better. Nice selection of wines with a good explanation of origin & how they would compliment the dish. Service was very efficient & professional. In this very formal dining establishment, with fine dining there was a dress code of no jeans. I thought that was reasonable, until we walked in to find people in jeans and t-shirts. ??????? If you are not staying at the hotel, prebook taxi a few days in advance. We were unable to get transport on the day, meaning minimal alcohol.

Excellent service. Food wonderful. Really like the provision of a box to take home the cakes we couldn’t eat (too many to eat at the time !) wwonderful atmosphere and experience . Also not being rushed out for next sitting. Could take as long you liked to just enjoy it.

Amazing. Great service so attentive. My wife is pregnant and so naturally we had a lot of questions about the suitability of certain dishes all answered confidently and clearly and no issues with making adjustments on request. Every amuse bouche was explained so well and presented beautifully again with additional explanations for my wife. Great night delicious food all made by the wonderful service. Thank you all so much for a lovely night. We’ll definitely come back.
