Find this good organic neighbourhood restaurant, in a Georgian townhouse close to the estuary.
To some extent the dining rooms décor reflects the restaurant's natural aims - with bare tables, the clever use of reclaimed materials and a certain rustic feel.
Chef/proprietor Tim Bouget offers a seasonal menu based on local produce, and has put all the knowledge accumulated from his worldly travels plus the experience gained working for the Roux Brothers at the Waterside Inn.
A Spring menu brought 'Teign Mussels with Mulled Luscombe Organic Cider, Garlic, Chives & Riverford Farm Cream'; 'Seared Warm Powderham Venison with South Hams Bok Choi, Toasted Sesame & Harbourne Goats' Cheese' and 'Salad of Roasted Beetroot with Wild Rocket, Hazelnuts & Blood Orange Dressing' listed among the starters.
'Steamed Fillet of Channel-Caught Sea Bream with Tomato Compote, Spring Greens & Quinoa Dolma'; 'Slow-Cooked Chump of Bowdens Farm Organic Lamb, Potato Terrine, Thyme & Black Olive Toffee' and 'Fragrant Broth of Spring Vegetables, Soba Noodles, Tangled Seaweed, Coconut Milk & Cucumber Sambal' among the mains.
A short list of desserts again follows the seasons, but included 'Home-Grown Rhubarb and Apple Crumble with Golden Raisins & Ode Ale Ice Cream' and 'Montezuma White Chocolate Iced Parfait, Cocoa Cracknel, Orange Blossom & Blood Orange Gazpacho' while a few top-quality local cheeses are also listed.
