Fodor's Expert Review Lympstone Manor

$$$$ Exeter Modern British
Exeter-born master chef Michael Caines has breathed new life into this elegant Georgian mansion overlooking the Exe estuary 5 miles south of Exeter, where he has installed three separate dining rooms to showcase his highly original recipes. The wow-factor starts from the moment you arrive, with unforgettable estuary views forming a fitting prelude to the gastronomic feast to follow. On offer are dishes like roasted Brixham scallops with parsnip and vanilla puree, fillet of beef with horseradish and shallot confit, and slow-cooked pheasant with braised Puy lentils, followed by desserts that might include hot pistachio soufflé. There are frequently changing fixed-price menus at lunchtime, while an à la carte menu and an eight-course tasting menu are available for both lunch and dinner. Luxurious accommodations are also on-site.
