Imaginative and complex cooking beside a beach

The location alone is a draw at this long white art deco hotel overlooking a three-mile stretch of unspoiled sandy beach. Watch the sun set from the terrace or soak up the maritime views from the stylish restaurant with original 1930s chandeliers. The kitchen is passionate about using only West Country produce and turns out some stimulating dishes in the contemporary mould. The daily-changing menu might open with a complex starter of liquorice-cured salmon with pickled cockles and accompaniments of orange, carrot and ginger, and proceed to lamb loin with smoked mussels, kohlrabi and mint jelly. Puddings include pistachio olive oil cake with rhubarb sorbet.
