It was in Italy that Jose learned that food is about both quality and company. At the heart of all cooking is the spirit of conviviality, the pleasure that comes from sharing a meal with others. At Endsleigh the result is an intricate combination of the freshest Devon produce with that Italian philosophy.
The cooking takes its inspiration from the surrounding countryside, and includes rabbit, venison and beef.
Every lunchtime we offer a set lunch special at just £22 for two courses or £26 for three.
In keeping with tradition, afternoon tea is the highlight of every day. Each afternoon the library table is set with an array of cakes, scones and sandwiches.
Wild Food Foraging
Monday 8 May, 10am
Delve into the Endsleigh undergrowth with Wilderness Woman (aka Jacky) to discover the edible plants and flowers in our garden. She can give you a lovely slug recipe, or if you’re feeling slightly less adventurous spring coleslaw. The foraging walk will include some common garden cultivars as well as the herbal, medicinal and folklore uses for a variety of easily recognised wild foods. The walk will take two hours and will include tastings of many plants, followed by a delicious lunch with some foraged foods.
£44 including a two course lunch
Endsleigh provides flexible spaces for all kinds of events. In addition to the rooms within the main house, we also have a large Stable for parties of up to 80 guests.
