With stunning views of both the bay and the wild landscape of Exmoor, Sandy Cove Hotel offers the best of both worlds. Positioned to maximise the vista with large windows (and a terrace when the weather allows), the restaurant offers a hypnotic view. Like the decor, the menu keeps things gently modern, too, sticking to familiar and successful combinations. Start with a well-presented confit chicken terrine studded with pistachios, prunes and apricots, before moving on to sea bass, creamed beans, celeriac purée and red wine jus. For dessert, vanilla pannacotta with grappa strawberries makes for a full-flavoured finale.
