Dining at The Treby Arms

One Saturday evening in October, my husband and I enjoyed an anniversary dinner at The Treby Arms in Sparkwell, Plympton. The renowned restaurant on the edge of Dartmoor National Park is just ten minutes from where we live, and is somewhere we have wanted to experience for quite sometime. With Luke Fearon recently appointed as Head Chef, we were excited to try the new menu, which prides itself on offering local and seasonal flora and fauna.

Saying a temporary good night to Joey the Dachshund, we had a taxi pick us up so we could make the most of the evening. On arrival, we enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail in the downstairs bar which is every bit the perfect country pub - the type you would see in a classic winter rom com movie like The Holiday with lots of little nooks and hideaways - before heading upstairs to the rustic restaurant. With traditional beams and white washed walls, the restaurant is both minimal and cosy and a place where you can feel both relaxed and refined. The staff were attentive and friendly and the atmosphere warm and inviting.

Deciding to go for fish that evening, I chose  a local crab dish to start, followed by fresh fillet of Sea Bream for main and a decadent artisan chocolate dessert complete with honeycombe and cocoa dusted netting. Nathan too had the crab, a fillet of beef with rustic cut chips,  followed by a cheese board with a very impressive handmade shard cracker. Accompanied by a locally produced white wine from Devon’s Lyme Bay Winery, and finishing the evening with loose leaf earl grey tea before the taxi took us home, the evening was every bit luxury and pared back fine dining that we wanted and expected.

After a perfect evening, we returned back to the Dachshund who was patiently awaiting our return.
