Rockhouse Lane, Maidencombe, TORQUAY, TQ1 4SX
This handsome Georgian manor house peeps occupies landscaped grounds over Lyme Bay. The main restaurant is a traditional space with wooden floors and linen-swathed tables - a suitable setting for the kitchen's ambitious à la carte menus. Classic French-accented technique delivers a refined starter of beetroot carpaccio with Vulscombe goats' cheese, red pepper jelly, pine nuts and apple and elderflower syrup. If the nearness of the briny puts you in the mood for fish, pan-fried brill fillet arrives with poached celery, wild mushrooms, smoked garlic mash, clams and ceps cream. For dessert, yogurt pannacotta pairs effectively with passionfruit coulis, mangosteen and hazelnuts, or go for artisan West Country cheeses.
