About The Dining Room At Saunton Sands Hotel

The Dining Room at Saunton is set within the heart of Saunton Sands Hotel on the North Devon coast. The Art Deco Dining Room has enviable views over Saunton Sands and is the perfect setting for a sumptuous lunch or dinner. Our chef Mathias Oberg has cooked at many feted, multi-Michelin starred restaurants across the world. But he’s decided to leave the frenetic buzz of service at London’s Shard to cook by the beach for us. With our extensive menu of British classics to tempt you, you’ll be stuck for choice. The menus use incredibly fresh locally sourced ingredients where possible and are a delight for the tastebuds. Choose to dine in our opulent surroundings or dine alfresco as the sun goes down with a chilled glass of wine from our extensive wine list.

What’s wonderful venue for a cream tea. The service was excellent, we were really taken care of. The cream tea was sumptuous and we both loved the overall experience. The weather was fantastic and the view from the hotel over the beach was incredible. If you want to spoil yourselves have a cream tea at this fab hotel.

Unfortunately, due to social distancing the dining room was lacking atmosphere, which is no fault to the hotel.

A very enjoyable couple of days All staff very helpful nothing was too much trouble Used the swimming pool once not sure how it was monitored as several towels left lying about and how many guests allowed in the pool at any one time even when booking Would return for another visit in the future Fabulous location

The menu was over flavour complicated rather than doing dishes simple and well. The service was robotic and if any thing over quick and the staff were not very engaging weather they are trained this way and told not to have a personality I am not sure but a restaurant can sometimes be judged on their staff. Our so called desirable table position had a lot to be desired in a draughty alcove for dinner and then in-between 2 windows with no view for breakfast not so desirable whole experience could have been so much better especially for the cost of the bill.

This much needed break, in these most troubled times was a "shot in the arm" for both my wife and I. From the moment we arrived in the car park until we left, everything about the hotel and our stay, was perfect. Accommodation, food, ALL staff, service, attention to Covid hygiene was first class and we cannot wait to return. Thank you, very much indeed.

Fantastic view from the restaurant, the food was excellent for both breakfast and evening meal, and the waiting staff were very attentive. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to lockdown but we will definitely to returning.

The manager is aware of our issues however we would like to add that our evening meals felt rushed . As soon as we had finished our starter our mains was bought out . Once we had finished our mains we were asked what puddings we wanted . It’s good that we are not kept waiting but there does need to be a break in between each course

As always a beautiful hotel clean and comfy. In this strange time we live every effort was made to look after me safely. All the meals were outstanding excellent work in the kitchen . Very friendly waiters . An all round brilliant job done by maintenance and ground staff to keep the Hotel up to standard Staunton Sands Hotel is known for.
