The Plains, TOTNES, TQ9 5DD
This Grade II listed property in the heart of Totnes has three character bars and a grand ballroom. The champagne bar, an addition to the TQ9 brasserie, is where bubbly is served by the glass or bottle from 5pm onwards, along with cocktails and wines. Excellent local brews and ciders are always on tap. Quality food at affordable prices is another strength - expect the likes of herb-crusted lamb rump, butternut squash purée and roasted root veg; truffle-infused tagliatelle with wild mushroom and parmesan sauce; pan-roasted sea bass with orange braised fennel, roasted chicory and fondant potatoes; and a choice of steaks from the grill.
