The Great Western & Smith’s Brasserie at Bovey Castle

There are two restaurants at Bovey Castle, each with their own unique style. The Great Western has 3 AA rosettes and Smith’s Brasserie is slightly a more casual dining area. Also, a great place to stay, with a spa and golf course on site. It is also dog friendly.
