Just a week after coming first in The Sunday Times and Harden’s Britain’s Top 100 Restaurants, Gidleigh Park was announced as Most Excellent Restaurant in the annual Condé Nast Johansens 2011 Awards for Excellence.
The Condé Nast Johansens Awards represent properties worldwide which offer the finest standards and best value for money in luxury and independent accommodation. Most Excellent Restaurant runners up were The Crown at Whitebrook in Monmouthshire and The Nut Tree Inn in Oxfordshire.
Executive chef, Michael Caines told the Devon Week: “Wow I can’t keep up with all this good news!
“What a fantastic award to win, again none of this would have happened without the hard work and loyalty of my team. My heartfelt thanks must go out to owners, Andrew and Christina Brownsword, head chef Ian Webber, general manager Sue Williams, resident manager Sue Kendall, restaurant manager Damien Bastiat and head sommelier Edouard Oger.”
Gidleigh Park is a privately owned Tudor-style country house hotel situated on the banks of the North Teign River in a magnificent 107-acre estate of woodlands and secluded gardens surrounded by Dartmoor National Park.
