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.

Everything was perfect except for the after dinner coffee I was very disappointed to find that the decaf coffee was a very nasty Nescafé instant only suitable for treating fences not what you expect from a 4 star hotel, thanks to the staff for providing one from the machine breakfast coffee was the same.

The restaurant can lack a bit of atmosphere when there are few diners. Also it can be a little chilly temperature wise in the evenings

However, I must point out that over the last three evenings we have sat at a table near to the windows & it has been very cold there each time.

Bueatifully well prepared dishes, served by extremely competent staff, our only gripe would be that the hot breakfast plates were cold.

The staff went out of their way to make our evening enjoyable. Even giving us a special plate with macaroons and decorated with Happy Anniversary when they overheard us toasting each other on our anniversary. The food was very tasty and well presented. Well done all.

What a wonderful meal, the scallops delicious the fish perfectly cooked. Pavlova dessert chewy in the middle and the smoothest sorbet. It's a lovely dinning room and the staff are efficient attentive and helpful.

Table times are difficult to book if restaurant is busy. The table size is very small for two people.

We had a really lovely stay at your hotel in the superb penthouse apartment = our seventh visit in fact. I'm sorry to say though that our meal for ten on Sunday evening was rather disappointing - I would rate it as 'mediocre' at best. Nothing terrible but the fish was a little overcooked, the roast potatoes were hard and dry, the venison somehow lacking … and served on oats - that was just weird!! We have enjoyed much better meals on previous visits.
