The Tanner Brothers
Tanners Restaurant is run by us, Christopher and James Tanner, and our dedicated team in the stunning grade one listed Prysten House, which dates back to 1490. Our vision is fine local produce, prepared and served lunchtimes and dinner five days a week. You can choose from our set menus, individually priced dishes or a gastronomic tasting with matched wines should you desire.
Local Quality Produce
Along with our kitchen team, we embrace the changing seasons and use the best local quality products from Devon’s larder. From local meats, fresh vegetables to stunning line caught fish. We even have a forager who we work closely with to discover the best the county can offer. We can cater for all dietary requirements.
The Frater Room
The Frater Room is a stunning oak panelled dining room for available for private dining and special occasions.
Tanners Restaurant is managed by Ben Wilson who has worked alongside Chris and James for the last eight years. Ben is as passionate about wine as he is food. He put together the wine lists for the restaurant and has achieved recognition for the wine collection and his passion in his chosen field.
