The Treby Arms in Sparkwell, Devon, is a delightfully rustic ,Michelin-starred country gastropub.
Masterchef winner Anton Piotrowski opened the 65-seater gastropub in February 2014.
However, he has since departed to take on a new venture, and Luke Fearon has stepped up from the role of Food Development Chef to spearhead the stellar pub.
The Treby has attracted a smattering of prestigious accolades, including the Trenchermans Guide Awards Best Restaurant 2015, the Good Pub Guide’s Country Dining Pub of the year for three years in-a-row and two AA Rosettes, to name a few.
Menus available at the pub include a sample taster menu, an a la carte menu, set lunch menu, Sunday lunch menu and bar nibbles, too.
As with the majority of top food-serving pubs in the UK, the Treby Arms sources its produce as locally as possible.
Game and venison come from Sparkwell suppliers Wild Hart Artisan, meat from butchers Gribbles and fruit and vegetables come from the likes of Forest Produce and Tamar Fruiterers.
Diners have the option to eat outdoors with everything hand delivered to their table by friendly and professional waiting staff.
Staple food on the menu include pig cheek with celeriac, Parma ham and pork quaver (£10) or foie gras with Hoisin-glazed duck hearts and pickled mooli (£14).
Main course options include stone bass with sea vegetables, kohlrabi and crab (£27), rabbit loin with Parma ham, faggot, ‘Koffman’ cabbage and smoke (£26) and 57-day aged sirloin with boulangere potato and crispy kale (£35).
As the Treby says, a meal is not complete without dessert where diners can choose from Treby’s gone carrots (as seen on MasterChef 2012) for £10, jaffa cake, cru Virunga 70% chocolate, tangerine and chestnut (£10).
The pub’s wine list is healthy and exciting, with a small selection served by the glass. Prosecco and other types of fizz are also served by the glass, which is ideal for small celebrations.
There are several hotels to stay at nearby the Treby Arms, if you want to make a holiday in Cornwall out of your visit.
