Àclèaf; A unique dining experience showcasing inventive British fare 

The Elizabethan architecture of Boringdon Hall is a reminder of the manor's glory days as home and host to the 16th-century's privileged class. A manor has stood on this site since 956 AD but it's the tales of banquets and well renowned guests from England’s golden age that triumphs. The views across the rolling greenery of Dartmoor is captivating, and the convenient proximity to Plymouth makes Boringdon Hall an easily accessible weekend escape. 


Fresh, modern dining indoors and in our covered beer garden means Salumi is the perfect destination this summer.
