First look: Glebe House guest house and restaurant to open in Devon in 2021

Former Sorella chef Hugo Guest is to open a hotel, restaurant and 15-acre smallholding in Devon in March 2021.

Glebe House has been run as a B&B by Guest's parents since 1980, and now he and his wife Olive are transforming it into a food and experience-based guest house.

The renovated property will include five guest bedrooms, an annexe, 30-cover restaurant, tennis court, swimming pool, and a small farm with livestock.

A poly tunnel will be used to grow vegetables and edible flowers for the kitchen, and the team will run cookery classes in an on-site bakery and charcuterie room.

Having spent eight years in the City as a reinsurance broker, Guest recently retrained as a chef for six months at Ashburton Cookery school and worked as a chef de partie at London restaurants including the Marksman and Robin Gill's Sorella.

He will run the kitchen with chef Sam Lomas, formerly head chef of Tide/Llanw on Anglesey, with a menu celebrating local produce with a nod to Italian cuisine.
