Recommended Places To Eat
Our very lovely, highly recommended, and slightly bonkers local pub (2 miles away) serving seasonal local food cooked creatively by a talented team. One of our absolute faves.
They have now fully reopened and you can find more details of how they are operating on their website. Binka and her team also offer a number of services such as picnic hampers, home delivery, ready meals and a private chef service. Contact Binka via their website for more details (mention you are staying at The Barton Granary & Brimbles!)
A fantastically good pop-up French Bistro in Witheridge (15 minutes drive) The talented chef, Anita-Clare, offers a bistro style menu that must be pre-ordered. Delicious food is served in a quirky environment and the service is whacky and friendly! Open only on Friday or Saturday and for pre-bookings only.
Now fully open with reduced capacity so it’s best to book well in advance. A deposit is required upon booking and menu choices must be made several days before arrival. A lovely private dining room and Demelza (their vintage Citroen camper van) are available to book too – check out the website for up to date details and information on how to book.

Amazing street food style burgers and craft beer – yummy on all levels. Currently offering pre-purchase food & drinks to take out or eat in their new Beer Garden,
Located in Newton St Cyres – 15 minutes drive – this cracking Italian family restaurant is a firm favourite for many guests. Great Pizza and Pasta and traditional italian dishes. Takeaway available too.
Just outside Tiverton, this lovely new eatery is currently open from 10am until 6pm Thursday to Sunday. Amazing food cooked in the wood fired oven (spectacular pizza too!), tasty brunches and some yummy cakes. Would make a perfect day out combined with a walk through the parkland of the nearby National Trust property Knightshayes.
