Watersmeet Hotel

Mortehoe, WOOLACOMBE, EX34 7EB

2 rosettes

This sparkling-white meringue of a building stands above the bay at Mortehoe on the north Devon coast, with views across to the birders' island paradise of Lundy. The waves smashing on to the rocks below offer a beguiling vista that often has guests just sitting and gazing. The westerly situation makes for alluring sunsets too. Factor in accurately cooked, punchy modern dishes as well, and the Watersmeet is a sure-fire winner. An enterprising fixed-price menu may lead you from smoked pigeon breast with a game sausage, Savoy cabbage purée and salt-baked beetroot to well-seasoned and carefully timed plaice fillets in herb sauce with diced fried potatoes and bacon and hazelnut dressing, or perhaps a serving of Exmoor sirloin with mini-steak and tongue pudding and truffled mash. Simple but boldly flavoured desserts encompass the likes of apple and vanilla delice with blackcurrant sorbet, or a pairing of pannacotta and zabaglione with plum compôte. If sweet stuff isn't your thing, there are thoroughbred West Country cheeses, served with pickled celery.
