  • Salcombe Harbour Hotel

    10th June 2017

    Review by Collette Having frequently visited the charming town of Salcombe for over 30 years, we always looked to The Salcombe Harbour Hotel as a place we must stay one day. The promise of it’s fabulous estuary facing rooms and its reputed dining have long tempted us; so you can…

  • Since I began writing this blog just over a year ago, it has never ceased to amaze me just how many foodie gems Devon has to offer when you make the decision  to stray from the beaten path. Take The Elizabethan Inn, for example. We had heard a few good things about…

  • There’s something really special about Harry’s Restaurant. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a family run business, or perhaps it’s because they’re a true independent establishment in every sense of the word . But whatever it is, Harry’s has been going strong for over two decades and it’s not hard to…

  • KuKu, Plymouth

    4th May 2017

     After living in London for a couple of years, it’s fair to say that I developed something of an obsession with sushi. In fact, when I moved back home to Devon it was one of the only things I truly missed about The Big Smoke. So you can imagine my…

  • City Gate Hotel, Exeter

    30th April 2017

    It’s often said that it’s the little things that make a hotel stand apart. Whether it’s good staff, great decor or just those final touches to your room – the little things go a long way. So, when we first arrived at City Gate Hotel and were shown to our room, it’s safe to…

  • The George at Hatherleigh

    19th April 2017

    I must admit, on our drive down to Devon’s smallest town we did ask ourselves why exactly any one would want to visit Hatherleigh. Aside being surrounded by the wonderful countryside – it’s located on the edge of Dartmoor – the village is fairly remote and hardly convenient to get…

  • If this blog post is the first time you’ve heard of The St George and Dragon Inn, you may be surprised to learn that you’ve driven by it on your way to Darts Farm or perhaps on a trip into Topsham. This unassuming inn, located on a little roundabout on the way…

  • Polpo, Exeter

    17th April 2017

    Review by Gabriella  I’m a little late to the party when it comes to covering Exeter’s newest restaurant Polpo; mostly because this award-winning Venetian restaurant has been the talk of the town since it opened in Queen Street over a month ago. Having heard many good things about the restaurants’ multiple…

    5th April 2017

    Review & Photography by Collette At long last chef Michael Caines has seen his dream of his own luxury fine dining destination in Devon turned into a reality.  An incredibly talented chef, Michael has been nurturing this dream for some time – a place where he can showcase his passion for food,…

  • The Stable, Exeter

    2nd April 2017

    The last time I paid a visit to one of The Stable’s restaurants, I was soaking up the sun in Newquay at their Fistral Beach location. I remember being impressed by their unique selection of pizzas and I fell in love with the concept of their cider tasting boards. The Stable is…
