We were guests here and had heard good things about the restaurant. We had a drink in the bar area until our table was ready, and when it was the waitress carried our drinks in for us. The tables are very nicely decorated and there were many interesting paintings on the walls. We were offered some freshly baked bread of... More

The dinner for 2 with wine came to a pricey meal. However, the venison done 2 ways was melt in the mouth and rich, served with an intense sweet braised red cabbage and smoked mash potatoes, my other half chose brill, a meaty fish with pesto and crab potatoes. The starters were tiny, the banana parfait fine, not the sort... More

I have various conflicting reviews of the Deer Park and having satisfied that the chef from what was Coombe House had jumped ship after the Pig chain bought the hotel, I was prepared for decent food and I was not disappointed, however as a whole the restaurant needs work to deliver the whole package Having been seated in the lounge...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on one rainy night as part of our holiday in June. We were impressed with the overall service and friendly staff. Our garden rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious although situated a little too distant from the main building for a mobility impaired guest. We had booked DBB and were not disappointed...

We booked the standard mid-week 3 course lunch for our party of 10 to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary last Wednesday. What a joy! Our table was elegantly set in the private drawing room overlooking the gardens which were in full bloom with banks of rhododendrons....and the sun was shining. Without exception we were blown away by the interesting menu... More

We stayed at the hotel and had read good reviews about the food so tried dinner there and weren't disappointed. Attention to local produce and what's in season came across along with sustainable produce. The menu unashamedly focuses on a traditional selection that is done very well rather than trying to cater for the global palate. A decent wine list.

This restaurant is ensconced in the quirky Deer Park Country Hotel, set in the winding hedgerows of Devon. To get there you drive through row after row after row of hedges with signs saying "you're nearly there", "don't give up" and other hilarious gems. Suddenly after all that driving you find yourself arriving at a wonderful manor replete with vintage... More

We were not sure what to expect reading all their jolly comments such as "by jove" and "what ho" but we had a great sunday luch at the Deer Park Hotel near Honiton. Grounds leading to the hotel looked very nice as did the 2 lounges ( where we were offered a glass of bubbly) and the dining room. The... More

Delicious Dining in Devon

Pitch up for a delectable dinner in our handsome restaurant, Loxton's. With simply spiffing countryside views, fabulous artwork by Margaret Loxton, attentive service and award-winning rosette food, this is one of the most enjoyable restaurants in Honiton, near Exeter.

Enjoy a pre-dinner tipple on the terrace overlooking splendid East Devon countryside or warm up around the roaring log fire in our glorious lounge before the main event begins.

Our menus have been carefully crafted by Head Chef Ian Grant and his top-notch team, using only the freshest produce and delights from our kitchen garden.
