My son is getting married in Devon,UK in Oct. Anyone out there know of special places to eat? Stay? Ideas on a pub to accommodate a rehearsal dinner? I'm sure he'll be researching this too, but we can use whatever help we can get. Thanks as always. pat
If you're anywhere near Dartmouth (lovely place if you avoid Regatta week) you should think about The Carved Angel. It's first class and very well known in the area. As for pubs, the nicest one around is The Gunfield which is perfectly set, overlooking Dartmouth, a short walk out of town. They have a rooms as well and i think it would be a lovely place to stay.
I'd advise against going to the recently opened fish restaurant, Hooked, as although they tout themselves as a serious restaurant they are in fact rank amateurs. I booked a table for 9.30pm one evening and when we showed up at 9.31pm they refused us a table on the grounds that the kitchen closes at 9.30pm sharp. They then implied I was a complete idiot by saying I would have been told about this when I made the booking. I wasn't. Their rudeness and inhospitality was compounded by the fact that they only had one other table in that night. It was a Friday. On reflection I think we narrowly avoided an expensive mistake.
Stick to The Carved Angel, they know what they're doing.
