Average meal, not worthy of £30 per head. Shame as the surroundings are lovely. If you stay, probably best not to dine in - there was only 1 other couple there when we went and they did tell us that the chef had left!

Tyme Restaurant is set within the historic Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel which lies in 44 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens in the North Devon countryside. We serve quality cuisine that is fresh, seasonal and local and are open all year for coffee and cream teas as well as pre-booked afternoon teas and evening meals. We are able to cater for larger functions, including weddings and private parties so whether you want a formal a la carte meal in our Restaurant or a marquee in our landscaped gardens, we can help design an event tailored to suit you. We are open for pre-booked evening meals for 2 or more people on Friday and Saturday nights. We can also cater for larger groups of 6 or more on other evenings by prior arrangement. We welcome enquiries for private parties, weddings, conferences and workshops. Booking is essential to avoid disappointment. We welcome children and can tailor the menu to suit along with most dietary requirements - just let us know when booking.
