Warm salad of Salcombe crab, scallops, broad beans and samphire, served with the Chefs own special honey and mustard dressing. This is a healthy dish that uses local products from the South West coast. Light and mouth-watering, it is perfect for a summers evening dining al fresco on the terraces at Buckland and even better enjoyed with a glass of crisp dry white wine!

We work with Paignton-based Kingfisher. They provide us with the best, most freshly caught fish possible! Their fish comes from Brixham fish market and is sourced from local fisheries. It is very important to us that our produce is as local as possible, and our menus change regularly to reflect the seasons and types of produce available.
Enjoy the Devon sunshine and cook your freshly caught fish on the barbecue for the best natural flavours of the sea, and don't forget your sun cream! Head Chef Ted Ruewell (keen fisherman!)
