A foodie's heaven

With its proximity to the sea, and with local fishermen, farmers and butchers offering such an abundance of fresh produce, South Devon is the perfect holiday destination for the foodie! Enjoy an almost endless choice of restaurants, distilleries, farmer's markets, and delis to sample the best the local area has to offer.


And Devon has no shortage of Food & Drink festivals throughout the year. Don't miss the Salcombe Crab Festival (May) celebrating 'all things seafood', the sustainably-run Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival (June) and the Dartmouth Food Festival (October), described by the Guardian as one of the top 10 festivals in the UK.

The Oyster Shack

at Bigbury

Local to Thatches, The Oyster Shack is a firm family favourite all year round. The delicious and varied menu offers a seasonal BBQ menu featuring the catch of the day, crab, lobsters and of course, oysters served a variety of ways. A scenic drive along the tidal path takes you to the restaurant where there is plenty of parking - and they even do takeaway!

The Crabshell Inn at Kingsbridge

Another firm family favourite, the Crabshell Inn is a friendly and welcoming gastropub. Sit outside for dining with fantastic views over the Kingsbridge estuary. It's an all day sun trap.

They serve a great range of draft beers and the food is all homemade. Of course, there is plenty of seafood on the menu but if you fancy a change try their pizzas - they are famously good!

The Ship Inn, Noss Mayo 

The Ship Inn is another favourite spot of ours. It really is a stunning location right on the edge of the Yealm estuary - a great spot for sitting in the sun and watching the world go by on the water! The owners pride themselves on their beer selection, and the daily changing menu features a great range of local produce. There are lots of sailing opportunities in Noss Mayo, and plenty of walks and fabulous crabbing spots!
