Last night my family and I went to the Tyme Restaurant at Trimstone Manor for my birthday. We booked a table for four. Arrived a little early, found a space in the back car park and admired the beautiful garden around the property. We were greeted by Joe in the Reception area. She was courteous and friendly. We sat in... More

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!

My husband and I were travelling on the a361 looking for somewhere nice to have lunch. We saw the incredibly detailed signs by the side of the road and although we were not able to pull over and read the complete and very long essay that was the advertising board we got the gist that it was a restaurant and...

Dear Reviewer You clearly have a high opinion of yourselves and your capabilities and yet cannot spell and have poor Grammar (let’s start with the title – ‘non’ has no ‘e’). Even when you try to insult, you cannot spell the name of the TV character to whom you try to refer. How embarrassing for you. You think it is... More

We had breakfast in the restaurant on the Saturday morning prior to setting off home. As it was low season we were the only ones having breakfast but nevertheless the service provided was friendly without being invasive and the breakfast was a good sized portion. We had a table by the window with a lovely view across the north Devon... More

Just returned from a really enjoyable lunch in this lovely tucked away location. It was a family gathering of 10. We received a very warm welcome on arrival, and were shown to the lounge for pre dinner drinks and to make our food selection. We made our way to our table which was large and wide enabling all to participate... More

It's easy to say what makes Trimstone so good, the team, wonderful, a delight to be with, nothing is a problem. Yes the location is good, the rooms as you would expect, clean and tidy, the... More
