Gilded mirrors and Zoffany-clad chairs make a glamorous contrast to the windswept moors. Squeeze into the bar for a Dartmoor Best

There aren't many inns where you can sink into Zoffany-clad winged armchairs in the dining room as you wait for the wild sea bass to crisp in the pan. Here you can: this Dartmoor inn is the template of deep-country chic, with a Cornish slate floor and a roaring log fire. Walkers and dogs stride in from the moors for Dartmoor Best Bitter Cornish Lager and cider on tap, real homemade crisps and hearty steak sandwiches. And fish and chips; pork belly with celeriac purée and pepper and thyme sauce; chocolate and hazelnut torte. Real work has gone into forging links with local farmers and food artisans, and it pays off in fine dining style. The settles are smartly sandblasted, the gilded mirrors hang above fireplaces and the moors are on your doorstep (nearby is the thrilling Lydford Gorge). Walk in the wind, then eat, drink and unwind.
