What an amazing evening we had last Thursday celebrating the launch of the Taste East Devon Festival in our new (almost finished) restaurant, The Farm Table! We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that joined us – we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.
It was brilliant to get together and celebrate the start of the festival with our fellow founding members, and friends, the Pig at Combe, Otter Brewery, Jack in the Green, Michael Caines of Lympstone Manor, Mazzard Farm, River Cottage, Deer Park, East Devon AONB and The Donkey Sanctuary; along with our amazing sponsors East Devon Council, Ashfords, Lympstone Manor, Jurassic Fibre & NFU Mutual.

As well as this as this we were thrilled to be joined by some special guests… including our local, hard-working MP Simon Jupp who came all the way from London to be with us to celebrate our wonderful region!

The night was filled with delicious farmhouse cheese & charcuterie from our award-winning Deli, seasonal veg fresh from our fields and home-grown and locally produced meat cooked on charcoal by our brilliant chefs. We also had the pleasure of tasting our new homemade gelato and artisan chocolate truffles… all washed down with a local tipple or two from Pebblebed Vineyard, Otter Brewery & Sandford Orchards!
For us, nothing says Spring like a delicious lamb roast accompanied by minted, seasonal veg and garlic butter new potatoes!
We are thrilled to announce that our expert florist, Anna Slade, was awarded a Silver medal at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
