Searching for a good food Restaurant in Dartmoor, Devon? Why not come and see what is on offer at Bearslake Inn. Crisp white table cloths, napkins and comfy high backed chairs combine to create a special atmosphere whether your dining occasion is an intimate dinner for two or a larger group.

Our restaurant, near Okehampton specialises in local produce. The South West of England is blessed with wonderful supplies of fresh meat, fish and vegetables direct from the farmer, fisherman or grower as well as a host of small artisan producers of cheese, ice cream and smoked products to name but a few.

At Bearslake Inn good food is very important to us. We like to cook from fresh using local ingredients, making as much as we can, including the stocks for our gravy and sauces.

Our shopping criteria are simple; best quality, locally produced, if not local then English and if we need to, we look further afield; after all we are not yet growing lemons in Okehampton or Dartmoor!

The Restaurant

The Stable Restaurant is our main a la carte restaurant seating up to 40 people. Crisp white table cloths, napkins and comfy high backed chairs combine to create a special atmosphere whether your dining occasion is an intimate dinner for two or a larger group.

Children are welcome in the restaurant but for the comfort of all our guests and without wishing to sound too old fashioned, we do ask parents to maintain an appropriate level of supervision.

At lunchtimes and some evenings we serve food in the Dartmoor Room. This is the old part of the building 16th century with granite walls and a lovely fireplace.

The Restaurant Menu

In keeping with our ethos of local sourcing of ingredients our menu is predominately English or even West Country in style and not pretentious. We cook good honest food that we like to present as well as we can to tempt your taste buds into action.

At lunchtimes we offer a range of sandwiches and baguettes alongside a Lunch menu if you prefer something more substantial.

The Restaurant Menu is available both at lunchtime and in the evening.

We also have a children's menu and are happy to offer children size portions off the main menu where possible.

Please ensure that you advise us of any food allergies or special requirements you may have. We will try to accommodate your needs as best we can.

The Wine List

Our wines are all sourced from Charles Steevenson wines in Tavistock. Charles has been trading as an independent wine merchant for over twenty years. Charles is acknowledged as an expert in his field and a true character to boot!

We have chosen a range of wines from across the world with a range of grape varieties, styles and prices which we hope you will enjoy.

We have many years experience of organising and running functions and have always found that things go smoothest on the night, with less stress for the organiser, if the event is planned in some detail. The guest list, timing, drinks on arrival, drinks with meal, the menu, the seating plan, speeches; it is not an endless list but your event will be all the easier for you and for us if we discuss these things in advance. Having said all of that, the needs of every group are different so please give Christine a call where she will be happy to help.

Our Suppliers

"we like to cook using fresh local ingredients"

For this to be possible we need to work closely with our suppliers to make sure that we are able to source from them products that are local to us. I am sure there are times when they become tired with our endless questions "where does this come from?" "who grows this?" "who caught this?" "which farm?" but they are a good bunch and very understanding of what we are trying to achieve. So a big thank you to all of them.
