Acorn Award-winning chef Scott Paton is to oversee the launch of Àclèaf restaurant in Boringdon Hall hotel, near Plymouth, next week.

The restaurant will replace the Gallery, which gained three AA rosettes six months after Paton joined the 42-bedroom Devon hotel in 2016. He received his Acorn Award – recognising 30 of the industry's most talent stars under 30 – the following year.

Àclèaf has been envisioned by Paton as an intimate restaurant with a focus on sourcing and showcasing British produce across four- and six-course tasting menus, accompanied by English-led wine.

The chef said: "I'm thrilled to be launching Àclèaf. Guests can expect a culinary journey led by the bounties of produce available to us in Devon.

Àclèaf hopes to present a uniquely immersive dining experience in the south west, a place where guests can feel at ease in the restaurant-team's hands and hotel's historic surroundings."

Àclèaf will open on 22 January and will serve guests from Wednesday to Sunday. The five-AA-star hotel also features the Mayflower Brasserie.

Acquired by the Nettleton Collection eight years ago, the construction of the Grade II-listed Boringdon Hall is referenced in the Domesday Book of 1086.
