Dining at The Manor House Restaurant is a feast of seasonality set in a remarkable Manor House perched high above the Taw Valley. Head chef / General Manager Richie believes strongly in the concept of seasonality and supporting local suppliers. Our meat comes from Heal Farm five miles away in King's Nympton and our fish from the shores of Cornwall and it is all so delicious that thoughtful balanced dishes are a staple on our menus.

We serve well balanced and freshly prepared food in our slate roof conservatory and intimate candle lit restaurant. For the ultimate in romantic dining we have just completed 'The Sanctuary at Northcote Manor' our summer house where up to 6 guests can enjoy dining under the star by torch light and candle light with the Manor House as the perfect backdrop. We also offer private dining in our Oak room for up to 20 guests.

Stay a while in timeless tranquility....
