The Devon View Restaurant at the Highbullen Hotel doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the promised vista, and that is indeed the rolling Devon countryside you can see through the bank of windows. The restaurant makes this golfing and spa hotel a useful stopover in this northern part of the county. Professional service sets the tone, and prodigious use of local ingredients ensures a sense of place. A fashionable partnership of scallops and pork belly makes an impressive opener, with various ways with cauliflower and curried granola, followed perhaps by pan-seared hake with fennel confit and Jerusalem artichokes, or north Devon lamb with classic flavours. A pannacotta dessert confirms the skill in the kitchen.
