Eat & Drink

Dining in
Combe House's restaurant serves contemporary British cuisine prepared by master chefs Hadleigh Barrett and Stuart Brown. There’s a choice of three rooms to dine in: the Green Mural Restaurant, with its oriental-style walls and elegant carved stone fireplace, the warm, oak-lined Panel Room and the Pink Restaurant. Whichever you choose, you can enjoy dishes such as foie gras with duck rillette with caramelised apple and boudin noir, seared fillet of bass with sautéed fennel, saffron linguini and langoustine vierge, with perhaps a delicious custard tart with rhubarb to follow.

Full breakfast is served until 10am

From the estate you can walk into the pretty thatched village of Gittisham and 20 minutes away is a costal path stretching from Sidmouth to Lyme Regis, one of Dorset’s finest seaside towns. There are many country pubs to stumble upon, while the cathedral city of Exeter, just 25 minutes away, awaits exploration.
