Food & Drink
- A menu using the freshest local produce…
The Westcountry is an area where high quality local produce is in abundance. Our ideal location, in Churston Ferrers, Brixham on the South Devon coastline means that our superb restaurant menu is always based on the very best and freshest local produce from Devon. Our Head Chef Will Hext takes great pride in sourcing local producers and creating freshly prepared restaurant dishes for you to enjoy. Please note that all items are subject to availability and that our menus will change to bring you the best of the seasons.
The best local suppliers…
Most of our fish comes from local supplier, Kingfisher, with the Haddock, Cod or Hake for our Fish & Chips coming from Marine Stewardship Council (MCS) approved fishing grounds in Norway, where it is line caught. Our mussels are also MCS certified and come fresh from the River Exe. Our Beef, Lamb and Pork is all supplied from butchers here in Devon, who source most of their meat from Westcountry farms. Our free-range eggs are from Marldon in South Devon. The delicious Yarde Farm ice creams we serve come from a family owned business in Langage, near Plymouth. Our Devon Roast Fairtrade coffee is freshly roasted for us by the Costa Rica Coffee Company in Torquay.
A choice selection of wines and beverages…
We have a wide range of drinks from real ales to fine wines, and all chosen with care from the best brewers and wine merchants… Our range of soft drinks includes Luscombes juices from Buckfastleigh, Devon, Frobisher’s Juices from Exeter, our wines are from Regency Wines of Exeter and Chris Piper Wines of Ottery St. Mary, and Real Ale choices from Bays the local Brewer. Even the beer in our famous Steak & Ale pies is brewed by Bays and we use it in the batter on our Fish & Chips and our Onion Rings! That’s Pete who owns the brewery pulling a pint at our Bar – my wife says “he could’ve shaved”!! We also have an extensive and growing range of fine spirits including a whole swathe of local Gins – make sure to try Tarquin’s Cornish Pastis – not just a great pun!!!
