Welcome to The Menu

Devon Life editor Andy Cooper explains why we've launched our new restaurant guide The Menu
We’ve never been faced with more choice when it comes to dining out. The range and quality of restaurants and eateries in our county is stunning. You could literally eat out every night of the year if you wanted to.
But with that range of restaurants comes the problem of making choices of where to go and when. Like all of us, I have a number of questions when it comes to picking a place to dine out.
Is the menu to my liking? Does the range and style of food meet my needs? Is it in the right location? Is it in my price range? When is it open? Are there any special offers which might tempt me?
The list of ‘unknowns’ can be overwhelming and that can often lead to us playing it safe and reverting to the places we already know.
Nothing wrong with that: it’s good to know where to eat and enjoy the experience. But, wouldn’t it be good to have that little EXTRA bit of help in making an informed choice about new places? Or, indeed, learn something new about somewhere you already know?
Which is where Devon Life comes in. Welcome to The Menu, our indispensable, unique guide to dining out in Devon.
I am proud to reveal this ‘must have’ answer to your dining out needs – with both a print and online solution helping make your choices even simpler.
Devon Life has specially selected our choice of the top 100 dining out venues in the county and gathered them together in a unique collection called The Menu.
The Menu is about choice, quality and supporting the wonderful Food & Drink producers in Devon.
It’s unlike any other dining out guide you will have encountered. Collected together on our website and featured on a specially created app for the county, The Menu lists all you need to know about the top 100 places to eat in Devon - all at the click of a mouse or via your smartphone.
It’s a simple way of browsing and selecting places to eat across the county…with lots of tempting offers and latest updates to whet your appetite.
And as well as The Menu online, each month in the pages of Devon Life we will also feature reports on the restaurants and eateries we have selected for The Menu. Read all about signature dishes, discover the people who make the restaurants tick, find out our tips on a tipple or two, learn where the top tables are and take in the latest Food & Drink news for the county.
Whether it’s a light lunch with friends, a romantic dinner date for two, a special family meal or a spur-of-the-moment trip out as a treat then The Menu has all you need in one single place.
I hope you enjoy using The Menu as much as we have enjoyed putting it together. My mouth is already watering at the choice of places to dine out at!
