Planning a getaway can be stressful, but one thing everyone can agree on is that good food will make it so much better. With Devon being renowned for its fine dining, we’ve picked out 5 foods that we think anyone who visits Devon must experience.
- Devonshire Full English Breakfast
Any retreat would feel incomplete without waking up to the enticing smell of a full English at least once. If you’re staying at Woodbury Park for your holiday in Devon, you’ll love the taste of our locally sourced meat and our free range eggs that are sourced a mere stone’s throw away from the Hotel.
- Devon Cream Tea
We knew you’d be expecting this one. Going on holiday to Devon would be truly insufficient if you weren’t able to revel in the cliché that is a classic Devonshire cream tea. A scone with fresh cream in a small cafe overlooking the hills of the countryside will be exactly what you need.
- 3.Fish & Chips
Take a small excursion down to one of Devon’s award winning beaches- nothing beats tucking into fish and chips using same-day caught fish as you dig your toes into the sand. Alternatively, should you want to stay in, enjoy our beer battered cod and chips with the fish sourced from the small fishing town of Brixham.
- ‘Cornish’ Pasty
Despite popular belief, the origins of pasties are unclear. Records have been found of a pasty recipe from Devon dating back to 1510, so why not celebrate this tradition by grabbing yourself a bite to eat from one of hundreds of pasty shops across the county.
- Classic Roast Dinner
After a long day trekking across the picturesque countryside, what more could you want than a full hearty roast dinner? At Woodbury we have the choice of roasted lamb rump from the stunning hills of Dartmoor and on a Sunday our extensive carvery menu full to the brim with delicious local veg.
Woodbury Park offers a wide variety of seasonal meals suitable for all dietary requirements. For more details on what there is to offer on your Devon holiday please visit: http://www.woodburypark.co.uk/fine-dining/
