Food&Drink

The hospitality scene on and around Exmoor is outstanding – we should know! After all we are the organisers of the Exmoor Food Fest….
All year round, restaurants and pubs offer amazing food with locally source produce. Low food miles guarantee freshness, and more often than not you will find a list of the local producers on the back of a menu.

There are also great foodie events (did we mention the Exmoor Food Fest???)  from tasting dinners to food fairs which offer a great and unique experience. It’s well worth staying a few days on Exmoor just for the food! And you can always do some of the great activities from mountain biking, to hiking, to coasteering or whatever else you fancy, to burn off some calories.

Here are our latest posts relating to Food & Drink on Exmoor:
