Torquay’s Favourite Basil Tries To Take Over At Orestone Manor
The English Riviera’s stunning country house hotel, Orestone Manor, makes the ideal hidden gem for a thrilling, laugh-a-minute evening of high-jinks, award-winning food and guaranteed entertainment, thanks to a comedy-gold live theatre-dinner performance from Torquay’s no.1 Basil and his staff.
The award-wining husband and wife chef-owners at Maidencombe’s charming Orestone Manor invite guests to see first-hand how they get things right, as diners watch agog as the hilarity unfolds, all while enjoying a sensational three course meal in Orestone’s highly renowned restaurant.
With the review power of outlets such as TripAdvisor, the obvious potential for real-life parody is vast – only a delightful hotel with the best customer service would run an event like this!
This riotous Torquay pastiche evening, entitled ‘An Evening with Basil’, sees Basil, Sybil Polly and Manuel unleash their unique approach to hospitality, while guests enjoy the charm and delight of this professionally-run, luxury south Devon hotel and restaurant.
The spectacular tribute, to what has been voted the number one UK television comedy of all time, begins over pre-dinner drinks and continues throughout the evening, as guests meet the owners and staff of the infamous Torquay guesthouse experiencing their madcap antics and set-piece fun.
Orestone Manor, set in landscaped gardens overlooking Lyme bay, sits in the stunning coastal village of Maidencombe, just off the coastal road between Teignmouth and Torquay. This delightful 14-bed hotel offers some of the finest hotel accommodation and fine dining in South Devon.
On Friday 22nd February, the Hotel’s award-winning restaurant serves a delicious three-course dinner prepared by the talented Orestone kitchen team, as the calamitous drama unfolds.
Dinner and entertainment is priced at £45pp. Rest assured, Manuel and Basil will not be allowed near the kitchen!
Orestone Manor is a consistent award-winner; last year saw them win gold for the past three consecutive years in the Taste of the West Awards; this joins awards and recommendations from Conde Nast Johansens, TripAdvisors’ Hall of Fame and double AA Rosettes for fine dining.
