At the heart of the hotel, the elegant and intimate award-winning restaurant provides a sophisticated backdrop to our decadent tasting and à la carte menus.
Matching the high standards in the kitchen, Gidleigh Park’s internationally renowned wine cellar accommodates over 1,300 bins and 13,000 bottles from around the world. Home to a selection of European, New World and Bio Dynamic wines, the cellar offers one of the most impressive wine lists in the British Isles.
Join us for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner and enjoy your choice of tasting or à la carte menus, dedicated to the finest seasonal ingredients.
We genuinely want everyone to feel comfortable when they are staying with us so we have put together a guide as to the general style of attire.
Dining in the restaurant at Gidleigh is a special experience and we encourage everyone to dress for dinner to reflect this. We would best describe the dress code as smart casual and mostly in the evening, gentlemen tend to wear jackets. Our guests do also wear smart jeans with a jacket but they don’t come in very casual clothes with trainers or flip flops.
Given that the evening service is a friendly but formal one, we have found that younger children don’t particularly enjoy it. As a guide from our previous experience, children of about eight years and over appreciate the environment and dishes but younger ones find it a bit much. We are always happy to look after families with small children and babes in arms in a private area or one of our lounges.
Joining Gidleigh Park in September 2019, Chris Eden arrived from Driftwood in Cornwall after 12 illustrious years as Head Chef. Bringing his produce-led ethos to the kitchens, Chris' style is beautifully laced with touches of adventure and invention, creating refined plates where flavour is king.
