New Residents

Having last year restored a lake below the front lawn of the house, we have just added 100 rainbow trout!

We are looking forward to offering fishing from a future date, once the trout are fully-grown. For now, we think the lake adds nicely to the views from the front of the house as a foreground to the vineyard where the vines are also busy maturing.

Welcome to our Brasserie

 Brasserie Menu Langdon Court Hotel

Welcome to Langdon Court Restaurant and Brassiere, where food is our passion…

My dedicated team and I endeavour to use only the best of local growers and suppliers. Free range eggs collected from local farms, “Rex Down” supplies the best day boat caught fish landed at Plymouth and Looe markets. For our meat we work closely with “Warrens” of Launceston. Their native breeds are fast becoming the favourite choice of “Michelin” stared restaurants as far afield as London’s West End.

Fresh produce grown and harvested by our gardener “Graham Tichmarsh” [Alan’s cousin] compliments what comes from local growers “Nearly Naked Veg” while “Hawkridge Farm” supply the finest British and Continental cheeses.

Menus and dishes reflect the seasons and are inspired by thirty years’ experience of working and travelling across the Mediterranean and South East Asia.

Homemade Artisan Breads, Terrines, Cured Gravadlax and Dessert are all made in house, to ensure that both quality and consistency are maintained to the highest levels. Thus ensuring your dining experience is both enjoyable and memorable.

How to plan your perfect wedding in Plymouth

Langdon Court Hotel is a beautiful Devon wedding venue, but no matter how exquisite your surroundings, you still need to be organised to put on a memorable and hitch-free wedding. Here’s our handy guide to help you.wedding-cakes

12 months to go!
Set a date. The most important starting point. The venue for your wedding and your reception are important, so check availability, then set the date. Everything else then works towards that wedding date.

You’ll need to book your reception and wedding venue too, to make sure that date doesn’t need to change. Now you can start compiling your guest list. Guests will need lots of notice, so they don’t plan holidays or other events.

You also need to book the registrar. If you are marrying in a church, the registrar will probably be the vicar, but you may want someone to marry you who is not a registrar. Contact your local register office about this.

Make a list of everything you need to buy or do and start shopping around – wedding dress, wedding cake, seat placements, flowers… You should also look into wedding insurance, to cover any unforeseen circumstances.

6 months to go!

Send out your invitations, along with information about the wedding venue and the reception venue – perhaps including a map with contact details for local hotels.

Assuming you have chosen your bridesmaids, best man and flower girl, choose outfits for them to wear. The earlier you shop around or plan for this, the better.

Book your honeymoon – you may want to buy a honeymoon package, or put together your own travel plans. Don’t leave it too late though if you want a dream holiday. Look for early booking discounts.

Have a dress fitting and find a hairdresser – maybe a salon that can do nails and hair on the same day. Organise this because you may find availability is short if you call the day before asking for them to book a wedding party of five.

Reserve accommodation for your guests and book transportation – not only transportation for anyone that needs to get to the wedding but also the wedding cars for the big day.

3 months to go!

Buy wedding rings, choose wedding favours and any gifts you might want to buy for parents, bridesmaids and best man. Choose your readings and run through the ceremony with the minister or registrar.

If you haven’t already done so, choose and book your wedding cake and book wedding night accommodation.

2 weeks to go!

Have your final dress fitting and make sure the men are fitted for their suits, because these should be ordered now if they haven’t already been hired.

Give the caterer your final guest numbers and create a seating plan for the wedding reception. Try out table decorations and confirm arrangements with florist, chauffeur and cake maker.

Now book a spa day and relax.

The scone debate – jam first or cream first?

Devon Cream Tea - scone, then cream, then jamThe Diamond Jubilee bank holiday has reignited the never ending “cream tea war” between Devon and Cornwall. The two counties are at loggerheads over whose cream tea is THE cream tea and whose method of dressing a scone is the right one.

The accepted Devon way is to split the scone into two halves, then spread clotted cream on each half and top with jam. Cornish cream teas have the jam going on first with the cream on top. [Read more...]
