From Dartmoor with love

A mouth watering prospect for foodies this Valentine’s Day
Two of Dartmoor’s finest hotels are making it easy for lovers of good food to ramp up the romance this Valentine’s Day with a very special Valentine’s Tasting Menu Dinner.  So whether it’s a romantic Dartmoor hideaway at the Two Bridges Hotel in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, or the allure of the stunning and historic Bedford Hotel in Tavistock, each hotel has a tasty treat for lovebirds this Valentine’s Day.
The Two Bridges Hotel is hosting a special seven course Valentine’s Tasting Menu Dinner on Saturday 13th February.  Prepared by award-winning Executive Chef Mike Palmer, the menu features local, seasonal produce with highlights such as Dartmoor fillet of beef with barley, blue cheese gnocchi and oxtail and Sladesdown duck with chorizo and pineapple.  Dinner is priced at £110 per couple.  Or why not make a weekend of it and chose between a one, two or three night Valentine’s escape at the charming hotel, which last autumn scooped a prestigious top Taste Of The West Gold award.

If country boltholes aren’t your thing, then the Bedford Hotel, located centrally in the bustling market town of Tavistock could be the perfect destination for you and your loved one this Valentine’s Day.  The Bedford Hotel offers Valentine’s breaks of one, two or three nights and Head Chef Raoul Ketelaars has created a sumptuous five course Valentine’s Tasting Menu Dinner by candlelight for Saturday 13th February. At £100 per couple, the locally sourced menu features monkfish, Dartmoor beef and the Bedford Chocolate Plate to share. See full menu and prices at: http://www.bedford-hotel.co.uk.
