The Devon Foodie in Crumbs Magazine!

We were super excited to be asked to take part in the latest issue of Crumbs Magazine as part of their ‘Little Black Book’ page. Each month, Crumbs asks a different local foodie to talk about their favourite spots in Devon.
This month I (Gaby) shared some of my favourite local foodie destinations:

Breakfast?
I’m always on the lookout for new breakfast haunts, but I must say that JK’s Bistro in Honiton serves up a consistently great full English.

Best brew?
Taylors, Ashburton. Personally, I’m more of a tea drinker, so I love their extensive loose leaf menu and charming period décor (the cakes aren’t too shabby either).

Favourite grocery shop?
When I’m in South Devon I like to visit Lifton Farm Shop. There’s an amazing array of fresh produce and the staff are always incredibly helpful.

Best wine merchant?
I don’t really shop with one particular merchant but I do like to support local vineyards like Pebblebed and Lyme Bay.

Sunday lunch?
The Oddfellows in Exeter does a cracking roast. The Yorkshire puddings are mammoth and the gravy is always spot on.

City Gate Hotel ExeterVanilla Sky Deli Budleigh Salterton


Cheeky cocktail?

If you’re fond of gin, then you can’t go wrong with Circa 1924, Exeter. There’s a really cool speakeasy vibe and they often play live music.

Posh nosh?
There are so many! Gidleigh Park Hotel served one of the few 10/10 dishes I’ve had the pleasure of eating; but Lympstone Manor is hot on its heels!

Quick pint?
The Old Firehouse in Exeter is always my first choice for local ciders and ales. The atmosphere is great and there’s a fabulous selection to choose from.

Food on the go?
Vanilla Sky Deli, Budleigh Salterton. Nick is very talented cook and they offer some delicious salads and homemade dishes to bring home.

Alfresco feasting?
The City Gate in Exeter has done a marvelous job of revamping its alfresco space. In summer you can sit alongside funky spray painted sculptures and nibble on tasty dishes from the burger van.

The George at HatherleighLloyds Kitchen ExeterHarry's Restaurant Exeter

Hidden gem?
Yukisan, Plymouth. Although it doesn’t look like much from the outside, this Japanese restaurant serves some of the best sushi in Devon.  

One to watch?
The George at Hatherleigh. With Chef Joe Dibley at the helm, this boutique B&B is producing some really outstanding food.

With friends?
The Holt in Honiton is a cozy and relaxed pub that is ideal for enjoying a hearty meal with good friends.

Comfort food?
Harry’s Restaurant, Exeter. Not only is the fillet steak to die for, but Harry’s skillet pan cookie is my guilty pleasure…

With the family?

Lloyd’s Kitchen, Exeter. Possibly the friendliest staff around and the menu has something for everyone.

Exploding Bakery ExeterCoombe Cellars

Child friendly?
Tickety Boo in Ottery St Mary is a great spot to meet for coffee and bring the kids. There’s even a designated indoor play area!

Best curry?
It’s a bit of a trek to get there, but Viceroy in Dunkeswell create some incredibly unique curries that I haven’t seen elsewhere.

Best atmosphere?
The Coombe Cellars, Newton Abbot. Spectacular estuary views coupled with stylish interiors make this premium pub one of my favourite foodie destinations in Devon!

Something sweet?
The Exploding Bakery in Exeter makes the loveliest polenta cake.

Top street food?
Two Coast County are the king of street food burgers. When you see their stall, you know your diet’s going out the window…
