Orestone Manor is an independent family run classic country house hotel & restaurant. The magnificent Georgian manor house is set in the pretty South Devon coastal village of Maidencombe, with spectacular sea views over Lyme Bay and beyond.

The award winning restaurant has a warm and inviting ambience with views over the terrace and countryside beyond. Our chefs have created wonderful menus with the finest local meats, freshly caught Brixham fish and vegetable produce, some of which has been grown in the hotel gardens.

Renowned for our relaxed, efficient and yet unobtrusive service, we are very proud of our 5/5 rating on Tripadvisor and 2 AA rosettes for dining.

Exceptional food with a friendly service. My mum and I had the 3 course set menu, which was very good value. We’re only in the area for a few days but will be back before we leave. Highly recommended for foodies! On a par with top london restaurants.

Amazing service, very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is lovely, very unique interior design giving a blend of styles in a relaxed yet elegant setting. The food was extremely good, very well put together menu and extremely reasonable for the quality. We will be returning.

A return visit for us. We have wanted to try the dinner menu after having lunch here a couple of times. Overall a pleasant experience with a good range of dishes. Extensive wine list. Comfortable lounge for pre dinner and after dinner coffee. More a hotel restaurant than one with walk ins simply because of the location. Lovely gardens and worth arriving a bit early to take a walk.

Step back in time at charming Orestone Manor, relax in the delightful lounge while you peruse your menus, linger over the faultless cusine in the impressive dining room, appreciate the friendly but unintrusive service and drive home carefully.

Been before and enjoyed it. If you're looking for fine dining this is one of the best local restaurants in Torbay and surrounding areas. The Manor itself is very beautiful too. Would recommend.

Went for my husband's birthday. Were given a lovely table on the outside patio with spectacular view down to the sea overlooking the garden. Wines were chilled to perfection and we both had the medallions of fillet. Truly mouthwatering and delicious. Cooked to perfection. Our sauces were fantastic and complemented our steaks to perfection. Cannot recommend this establishment more highly and would most definitely return. Staff attention was just right. A lovely experience and not overly expensive. Hence 5 stars.

My husband and I came here for afternoon tea on our wedding anniversary. We had a very enjoyable experience. The food was exceptional-delicious sandwiches and home made cakes. We especially liked the unlimited tea which we drank and drank! Lovely surroundings and very attentive and friendly staff made it a very special occasion . We are looking forward to returning for lunch or an evening meal very soon!

This was going away with my daughter, food was fabulous and service second to none.
It's not the first time we've been here but it certainly ticked all the boxes.

Very pleasant evening with attentive and engaging staff, good food, genuine homely feel.
They were quite busy (so they must be doing something right) but we weren't kept waiting or ignored. Food options represented a decent choice and portion sizes were just right .

Very good and we'll definitely go again

The food here is sensational, we have spent more at Michelin starred restaurants that didn't deliver as much as here, the pork belly is a show stopper. It takes a lot to impress my husband and he stated that this dish might be his most favourite dish- ever.
We were dining with our two year old so the restaurant seated us away from everyone else, literally in a room on our own. Whilst this might be pleasant for some, we felt very out of the way and didn't experience the ambience of this restaurant as a result. I think they must have regretted the decision when seeing that our 2 year old is accustomed to dining in restaurants and doesn't cause a scene, in hindsight we should have asked to move. But hey.
Overall though, this meal was crazy cheap for the quality. Under £100 for a lovely bottle of wine, main courses and petit fours. What more could you want.

This is a very good high end restaurant. The food was perfect with excellent attention from the staff . Price wise it's high end but that is justified by the quality, service & position . Makes the Elephant[ torquay restaurant ] look poor . We will be going again Mr J.A. Parker

Although the sun didn't shine for too long, we had a fabulous meal in beautiful surroundings. The staff we more than helpful and accommodated us sitting outside for pre drinks and then back inside for our meal. The atmosphere was relaxed and yet still special. We shall certainly be back again.

A nice venue for a special occasion. Good to see white tablecloths and good space between tables. Whilst the quality and quantity of food was generally good I did think the quantity of Lobster for my meal was a bit small. My wife did enjoy her fish dish and remarked that it was very fresh. (No fish odour!) Other hotels please learn.

We booked months ahead to make sure and there were only 2 other couples. Food, service, ambience etc. Were among the best we have experienced and, at age 70, we have a little. Don't negate my review because of my age. The Orestone Manor is GREAT! The old lady [my wife is a day (hours really) older] agrees completely AND it was for her 70th birthday. The servers even overheard that and recognized her because of that. Loved it.

We arranged to enjoy our 1st wedding anniversary at this venue and could not have been more thrilled at the quality of food that we enjoyed. The service was 2nd to none and every course that chose was beautiful. Thank you to everyone.
