In Mid Devon we are very lucky to be surrounded by rich soil and plenty of countryside. These provide the space to grow the ingredients (vegetables, fruit, berries, vines, trees and grass for cattle) to fill our farm shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants making flavoursome dishes and drinks. Many of our eateries source Mid Devon’s local produce. You can easily pick up local items for your meals and picnic baskets at our farmers’ markets and food shops.
Eateries from Cullompton, Tiverton, Crediton and Bampton, as well as gastro pubs dotted throughout our beautiful countryside will be getting involved in the campaign.
Mid Devon offers a diverse dining scene, there’s no shortage of country gastro pubs and restaurants to pick from. Enjoy traditional dishes, fish and chips, a Sunday roast, specialist dishes; whatever your taste buds fancy we have it! Book your table today…
