Food

That’s where it all started. We’ve got an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce: simple food done well.

From our plot to your plate

There’s a saying in Devon that ‘if you stick your finger in the ground it will grow’, and the kitchen garden is our beating heart.

The difference here is there are 3 walled gardens - the vegetable garden, the herb garden and the infusion garden.

Please speak to our Restaurants Manager if you have any questions about the menu, allergies or dietary requirements.

Our 25-mile menu

What we can’t grow ourselves, we source from local suppliers and producers.

  • Coombeshead Bakery

    65 miles away
    Sourced a little more than 25 miles away, Coomeshead Bakery supply us with our sourdough. The bakery makes naturally leavened bread using all-UK-grown organic stone-milled flour. Perfect for dunking into one of our hearty home-made soups.

  • Haye Farm

    11 miles away
    Since Harry and Emily bought the farm in 2014 with the intentions of building organic food systems, they have developed a large vegetable garden, as well as soft fruit and herb patches. In the farmland grounds, they graze a herd of Devon Ruby Red cattle, a wonderful mix of pigs and a flock of sheep, whilst 650 hens and ducks roam freely.

  • Otter Brewery

    9 miles away
    Established in 1990, Otter Brewery began brewing its beer from a farmhouse in the heart of the Devonshire Blackdown Hills. To this day, the whole family has been hands on in developing the craft of the award-winning beers.

  • Buckhouse Farm

    3 miles away
    Buckhouse Farm is home to a flock of Black Welsh Mountain sheep and they supply us with wonderful, full-flavoured lamb meat. With a mosaic of small wildflower-rich fields, hedge banks and woodland copses the Coly Valley is much-favoured place to rear livestock. 

  • Matthew Stevens

    167 miles away
    A little more than 25 miles away, but our daily fresh fish supplier comes from the Cornish coast, in the artsy seaside town of St. Ives. With over 50 years of experience, Matthew selects the best local day-boat fishermen who carry a genuine care for their produce, using traditional fishing methods with a modern handling. 

  • Exmouth Mussels

    17 miles away 
    Working from their base on Exmouth Docks, Exmouth Mussels supply us with sustainably farmed and award-winning shellfish from the sparkling waters of River Exe. By doing away with dredges and using a self-fluidising elevator, the shellfish are teased from their muddy beds without impact on the stone layers beneath. Minimal disturbance and constant re-seeding allows the high density of fish, crabs and sponges that build up on these “underwater rainforests” to be maintained.
