Our Chef & Team
Dedicated to hit exceptionally high standards to celebrate wonderful Devon produce.
Catering & Marketing Manager
I am passionate about keeping food simple and allowing the quality of the produce we work with to do the talking. It was essential for the success of the restaurant to engage a Head Chef who is as passionate about local produce
and traditional breeds, who believes like me in understanding how the animals are raised to create the flavour and to ensure the sustainability of
historic local Devon breeds.
