Circa 1924 is already one of my favourites out of all the chains and independents. I have enjoyed their Express Lunch a few times (see my review here), taking friends with to show my 'secret' off. But this place should be far from a secret - it deserves to be found and filled with both… Continue reading Dinner at newly refurbished Circa 1924 – by Lauren Heath
The Pig at Combe is far from the dusty, muddy, snorty (but intelligent) animal it is named after, it does however embody the essence of countryside. As you drive towards it from the a30 and through the villages, you see this warm glow illuminating in the distance, calling you into its warm belly. I have… Continue reading Private Dining at The Pig at Combe – by Lauren Heath

I was here to see how their chips fared up to the previous visit, when… Continue reading The Clock Tower Fish Bar, Queen Street

Lynton and Lynmouth sits on the North Devon coast. It has a rugged windswept beauty that most little towns in that part of the world posses. Tucked under the gigantic cliffs that is created as Exmoor collides with the Bristol Channel, it is only accessible via a network of windy roads which during the summer… Continue reading Special Dispatch: Fish On The Harbour, Lynmouth, Devon.
Dart's Farm is a curious place, because unlike many people who might read this, I remember when it was still Picfresh. Right, so lets go back 20 years ago and Ronald Dart owned a funny little farm shop that, in my mind, was always tacked on to the side of a larger barn.
