Soar Mill Cove Hotel
This seaside chic coastal restaurant tells us is 'the faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident'. But its no accident that there are spectacular sea views from this bright and modern dining room with its painted tongue and groove, dark wood tables and comfortable marine blue and taupe chairs. Its a space casual enough for a relaxed lunch but smart enough for a special occasion dinner. Local and seasonal are the watch words here so specials depend on what's been landed at nearby Brixham and Salcombe harbour and seafood is a speciality of the house. You might start with a salad of Salcombe scallops with spicy chorizo and a tomato dressing followed by a fillet of turbot that's been gently steamed over an aromatic lemon and ginger infusion and served with saffron potatoes and a citrus sauce. Meat lovers won't be disappointed by a grilled fillet of West Country beef.
