You can expect a warm welcome at Kitley House Hotel, a historic manor house serving delicious, unpretentious food made from fresh, locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. The restaurant has recently been awarded One AA Rosette for its service and food, following the introduction of more adventurous fare alongside old favourites served with a modern twist.

Kitley’s suppliers are as local as it gets: the Blackmore-Matthews family breeds the restaurant’s succulent pork, chicken, and duck right on the estate; local butcher Gribble’s supplies the beef; fresh fish is sourced from Plymouth, Brixham or Newlyn markets; while rainbow vegetables, potatoes, and brassicas are grown at Pips fruit and veg farm just across the road from the hotel.

The 500-year-old manor house is full of history, but the atmosphere is friendly and informal. There’s a choice of dining options, all with views over the gardens and extensive family-run estate: relax in the bar where classic bistro dishes are available throughout the day or eat from the restaurant’s a la carte menu in the evening.

On Sundays, the hotel has a laid-back feel that’s perfect for making the most of the weekend, serving all-day Sunday roasts from midday through to 9 pm. Enjoy an aperitif while listening to live music from the hotel’s resident pianist, then while away the afternoon with a Sunday roast or a Devon Cream Tea to jazz tunes from the Ronnie Jones Trio.

Kitley offers seasonal fine dining and wine tasting events, a superb way to sample a creative five-course dinner perfectly paired with a selection of divine wine. You can also book for private lunches and parties.

Special dietary requirements can be catered for if advised at the time of booking.
