Just five miles from the old carpet town of Axminster, Fairwater Head enjoys panoramic views over the Axe Valley and stands amidst three acres of manicured lawns. An appealing grey stone building covered in climbing foliage, attractive interiors contribute to the relaxed rural ambience, and the elegant Greenfields dining room boasts smart table linen and friendly, informal service. Flawless Devon produce is worked into an extensive choice of modern classic dishes. Expect a silky cream of cauliflower soup, followed by baked cod loin, lobster sauce, new potatoes and baby vegetables. Finish with sticky toffee pudding and clotted cream ice cream.
