App Description

The Trencherman's Guide, now in its 22nd edition, is your guide to fabulous restaurants and places to stay in South West England. It's your hit list of foodie places to visit across the West Country featuring the top restaurants in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol and Bath.

The 166 restaurants featured in the guide are all of the highest quality - from dining pubs to Michelin star restaurants and country house hotels, you're sure to find something to suit your needs.

The guide includes all the essential information you need to plan your meals out including contact details, guideline menu prices, beautiful full colour pictures, social media information, useful maps of the local area and recommendations from the region's top chefs. It's broken down into helpful geographical areas and each entry includes a tagline to sum up each restaurant at a glance.

Look out for the stay symbol on each entry - this indicates a restaurant with accommodation, perfect if you want to make a holiday of it or plan a foodie weekend away.
