Traditional, Quality and Value are key words in every aspect of our business, and we and our team believe in going the extra inch every time
We are very proud that our food is sourced from within the wonderful larder of the West Country wherever possible. It's all cooked fresh to order and we even make our own Ice Cream!
For example, the Beef we use comes from Graham Letherbridge’s farm – Holesome Park - less than 5 miles away, he has mostly pedigree British White cows and some Angus Cross. The animals are reared on natural diets which can include grass, turnips, hay, home-grown cereals (wheat and barley). They are grazed on land at Soar Mill, Hallsands and Bolberry. All of this leads to the meat having a succulent full flavoured taste. Our Chefs here trim and cut the Beef by hand, producing joints and prime steaks
The vast majority of the rest of our meat comes from Leach Butchers in Newton Abbott. They source their Pork from from all over the West Country, but predominantly from Woolston, Launceston and Truro
Our Venison is farmed at Plympton, and our Sausages are from a specialist Sausage firm called Westaway in Newton Abbott. They use only the highest grade of Pork and also use traditional ‘casings’
We’re right by the sea so of course we use as much fresh Fish as possible, and sourced from one of the most respected firms in the business; Kingfisher of Brixham, they are as passionate about Fish as we are!
With almost 30 years in the industry, Kingfisher has become a kite-mark for quality fish, known throughout the country. They source their fish from Brixham, Plymouth, Looe and Newlyn, trading some of the finest produce in the West Country and they only supply fish from sustainable sources. The Mussels we use are from the River Exe, and our Crab is from Salcombe Crab Traders
Bread for our sandwiches is from the Frenchmans Bakery in Salcombe and we make our own Burger rolls. Our Milk and Cream is from various parts of the West Country as are the Eggs, but some of the eggs are from our Chickens in the garden – food doesn’t get fresher than that!
Last but not least our Cheese is from Taw Valley Creamery in North Tawton, the Cornish Yarg is from Lynher Dairies in Cornwall and the Devon Blue is from Ticklemore Cheese in Totnes
We also work hard to help support our environment by re-cycling food waste, glass, cardboard and paper and we use energy efficient light bulbs where ever possible
Children have their own menu and you can be sure that their food is made from the same fresh ingredients as your food is from! We serve food every day (except Christmas Day) from 12 noon through to 9 in the evening
