Welcome to superb Devon dining at the Two Bridges Hotel in the heart of Dartmoor. With a Two Rosette award from the AA, and a Gold Award from Taste of the West, we are proud to present the very best seasonal produce from local farmers, fishermen and producers. Take a break on a day out on Dartmoor, and enjoy a relaxing lunch in our bar or our restaurant, or linger over an indulgent dinner with friends. Whenever and whatever you choose, you’ll be very welcome.
It is in the evening that Executive Chef Mike Palmer’s creative flair really comes into its own, with our superb and ever-changing dinner menu.
His creations include dishes such as Creedy Carver duck with fondant potato, orange, raisins and chorizo, and basil and ricotta ravioli with wild mushroom, hen egg, leek and truffle.
For those with a sweet tooth our extravagant desserts are to be particularly savoured, including Mike’s signature dessert ‘Everything Chocolatey’.
If you are staying with us and would prefer a lighter bite to eat in the evening, our Lounge Menu offers a selection of tasty light dishes, main courses and desserts.
Our ales are provided by our very own Dartmoor Brewery – England’s highest brewery, situated at the heart of Dartmoor National Park. All of our ales are delivered in perfect condition, including the award-winning Jail Ale.
We also have a superb selection of fine wines, provided by Tavistock wine merchant Charles Steevenson. Our staff are always happy to recommend a suitable selection to complement your food. Charles also runs regular wine tasting events at the Two Bridges, showcasing delicious wines from around the globe.
Lunch at the Two Bridges Hotel on Dartmoor is a very relaxed affair. Delicious meals and light-bites, offering the perfect midday treat whether you are staying with us or not.
