On Sunday, tuck into a dish of locally sourced meat accompanied by duck fat roasties and vegetables; for pudding why not try the apple and blackberry crumble with cinnamon custard – yum! Bring your pet pooch along; we’re sure that they’d love to stroll around the Inn’s beautiful garden in the summer.

Lacemakers Café, Honiton

Positioned on Honiton’s High Street is the Lacemakers Café, a quaint, family run spot, built on 400 years of Honiton’s lace-making history. Well known for its tempting Devonshire cream tea, the café also serves a mouth-watering Sunday lunch, why not try the roast lamb alongside a pint of real ale at the weekend?
