Tyme Restaurant at Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel
Trimstone, Woolacombe, Devon, EX34 8NR
Tyme Restaurant is a pretty, airy restaurant set in the 17th-century Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel in North Devon. Surrounded by rolling countryside and a panoramic coastline, this rural retreat is ideally located for a stop-off when exploring the nearby seaside resort of Woolacombe.
With its French windows onto the lawn outside, and comfortable feel of a smart but homely dining room, Tyme Restaurant is an attractive and pleasant place to settle in for a fine dinner. Choose a table near the window for charming views of the 44 acres of landscaped garden, and begin an evening of fine food and drink with a glass of wine from the carefully selected list as you peruse the menu.
The head chef makes the most of fresh produce from land and sea, sourced from local suppliers and delivered to the table honest and well presented. The menu showcases modern British food, with heavy heavy seaside and seasonal influences, and changes often. Whet your appetite with a light starter, which could be carrot and coriander soup served with warm bread, or duck breast goujons on a bed of salad dressed with an orange and ginger sauce. Main courses might be sirloin steak with all the trimmings, or poached cod loin with pea purée and parsley sauce. Round things off with a classically British dessert like elderflower and raspberry jelly or Bramley apple crumble.
Run by friendly and accommodating owner Philip Milton, Tyme Restaurant at Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel is an elegant yet comfortable dining establishment of the old order. Look no further for a true south western welcome and reliably good British dishes.
