  • We love to find new foodie destinations to enjoy, especially when there’s the potential to bring home some tasty local produce in the process. So, when we received an email from Janice (of the Railway Blogger) telling us we simply must pay Vanilla Sky Café and Delicatessen a visit, we…

  • 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…

  • Orestone Manor, Torquay

    31st May 2017

    Review by Collette  Steeped in history, Orestone Manor Hotel is popular with locals and holiday makers alike. This beautiful period hotel  was the former lodge of acclaimed painter John Callcott Horsley (designer of the first commercial Christmas card!) and was actually his location of choice for his famous portrait of…

  • New Turtle Bay Menu

    25th May 2017

    Review by Collette We last reviewed Exeter’s Turtle Bay within days of it’s opening in Exeter Queen Street. Back then, we had a lot of positive things to say about the Caribbean restaurant and we were intrigued to see if it would still be going strong some 6 months later..…

  • Back in my Exeter College days, I spent many a lunchtime and free period sat in Boston Tea Party, nursing a cup of coffee and avoiding my deadlines. It was well known for it’s laid back atmosphere and to this day I find it a little bit too easy to…

  • 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…
