Restaurant 2018 award win for third year.
Torquay and its surrounding villages have undergone a huge upgrade and are now winning award after award for quality accommodation, cuisine, and generally fine tourism.
Gone long are the days of the kiss-me-quick, and slot machine freaks everywhere, replaced with decent, good old-fashioned tourism of the kind our parents would have, and did, enjoy. And I can assure – no sign of Fawlty Towers anywhere.
Adding to its impressive array of awards and recommendations, Maidencombe’s family-owned and run Orestone Manor, has scooped for the third consecutive year, an enviable Gold restaurant win in the highly competitive, 2018 Taste of the West Food and Drink Awards.
Our Good Holiday expert testers have twice visited and find it getting better and better every time. We loved the family-run, Devon gem, led by husband and wife executive chefs, Neil and Catherine D’Allen, son Craig and his wife Laura, who all are thrilled with the judges’ recognition of their passion for food and fine dining. And all delicious dishes are from locally-sourced, Devon produce.
The Taste of the West judges were effusive in their praise of the Orestone’s kitchen and restaurant-led by talented head chef, Daryl Sharpe, saying it showed a “clear and strong commitment to local sourcing with very knowledgeable and welcoming staff” and provided “an exceptional level of service.”
