Devon restaurant set to reopen after three-year hiatus

A Devon restaurant is set to relaunch following a three-year absence.

The Great Western Grill at Bovey Castle in Dartmoor will open its doors following a £1.2m investment into the kitchen and new guest areas. The restaurant will officially reopen on June 30.

The new menu is inspired by British comfort food and forgotten classics, offering traditional favourites, meats and grills, steaks, house specials, and fish and shellfish, as well as vegan and vegetarian options, whilst its Sunday roasts are also returning.

The Great Western Grill will be led by executive chef Mark Budd, who will be using locally-sourced ingredients to develop the new menu. The 3AA Rosette restaurant also includes a new champagne and oyster bar.

Bovey Castle was originally built by the WH Smith family in 1907 before being launched as a hotel by Great Western Railway in 1930.

General manager Dean Gunston said: “We are really excited to be opening The Great Western Grill at Bovey Castle and can’t wait for people to come and see the new look.

“We pride ourselves on providing local, sustainable and delicious food which showcases the best of British and demonstrates the skills and the knowledge of our talented kitchen and food and beverage teams.

“There’s something for everyone on the new menu and we are also really pleased to bring back our popular Sunday lunches after demand too, as well as keeping the much-loved Afternoon Teas on the menu on Sundays.”

Bovey Castle was acquired by Eden Hotel Collection in 2014, and has since won awards including 5 AA Red Stars in 2017 for its exceptional hospitality.
