With stunning views, unique architecture and fresh produce from the abundant fields and coastline, it is not for nothing that the South West is such a popular place to visit. While the region might also be known for its cream teas, cider and pasties there is plenty to be found on the fine dining end of the culinary spectrum, with a number of exciting, innovative chefs living and working in the area. Ranging from the Cotswolds to Cornwall, this collection features some of the best places to eat in the south west of England.
Ellenborough Park, situated in the heart of the Costwolds, offers a certain degree of grandeur along with its excellent menus, while The Pony and Trap near Bristol provides Michelin standard pub fare in more relaxed surroundings. Further down the coast in Cornwall is Port Isaac's superb seafood Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and Rojano's in the Square in Padstow. Devon, too, is not without its treasures - The Elephant in Torquay serves up exquisitely presented dishes with many ingredients sourced from the chef's own farm.
