Most of our cheese is made in Devon or a little further afield in the West Country. We do make an exception for our Stilton, which is Colston Bassett in Nottinghamshire.
Ideal with cheese and charcuterie, we have a choice of olives; Herbs and garlic, stuffed with cheese. Regrettably, not grown locally……
We rely on Deli Farm Charcuterie, of Delabole, Cornwall, for their fine, hand crafted, air-dried meats. A selection of packs is available to take home, as well as featuring in our Charcuterie platter.
Our Sourdough, Multi-seeded and white loaves are all delivered daily from craft bakers Halletts of Paignton, as are our teacakes and batons. (We did try a different supplier once…. but the uproar from our customers soon persuaded us that we’d made a mistake!)
Free Range Eggs
Riverside farm, Marldon, near Paignton
Riverford Organic Dairy, Staverton near Totnes. Cows fed on grass and other fodder cops- lucerne, clover, etc. But please see their website to understand why their products taste so good
Mostly from our expert friend Clair in Brixham, but the fruit cake comes all the way from Mrs Gills in Tiverton
The Fine Cheese Company- near Bath, Somerset
Simply Cornish (including Ginger Fairings), and for a special treat try Teoni
The Bay Tree (Ivybridge), Hogs Bottom (Lifton, Devon) are our favourite suppliers. Proper Piccalilli from Bay Tree or Devon Chutney from Hogs Bottom are great choices
Jam, and sweet preserves
Again it’s got to be The Bay Tree and Hogs Bottom. Try Charming Cherry from Bay Tree, or the Ginger marmalade from Hogs Bottom.
Brimecombe apiaries, who raise their bees in the marvellous countryside around Brixham
Devon Cottage Organic Fudge (Cheriton Bishop
Exeter) is the best we can find- and it seems quite a few people keep coming back for it
Preserved lemons feature in some of our personal favourite recipes at home, as does Mushroom Ketchup. We also stock Padsters (of Brixham) Lemon Vinegar- perfect with fish- and Pickled Walnuts
