About

The Exmoor Food Fest is celebrating the Taste of Exmoor.

In 2017, a number of restaurants have come together for the third time to offer outstanding food at an affordable price as part of the Exmoor Food Fest. Customers will be able to eat their way across Exmoor – 2 courses for £10.00, 3 courses for 15.00.

Please confirm with the restaurant of your choice that the Taste of Exmoor deal is available on the day when you wish to dine. You will be asked to hand in a voucher to be eligible for this deal.  You can download the voucher from the website. Don’t worry if you don’t have a printer – you can also find the voucher at the restaurants and a number of Tourism Information Centres across the region.

The Taste of Exmoor Awards

All participating restaurants, tea rooms and village shops will automatically enter the very first Taste of Exmoor Awards.  During February, the public will be able to vote for their favourite dining experience – The Exmoor Chef of the Year and Exmoor Host of the Year will be crowned at an Awards Ceremony at Butlins on 27 March 2017.

The people behind Taste of Exmoor and the Exmoor Food Fest

The event is brought to you by Exmoor4all.

Andrew Dixon (The Cafe at Porlock Weir) had the idea, Elke Winzer (Exmoor4all) ran with it, Peter French designed the Taste of Exmoor logo, and Werner Hartholt (Butlins, Minehead) enthusiastically supports it.

All of us would like to say a huge THANKYOU to everyone who has helped us, believed in us and still talks to us!

Our Sponsors

The Exmoor Food Fest would not be possible without the kind support of all the restaurants and the hard  work of all chefs and kitchen staff involved.

We are also grateful to our media partner Archant (Somerset Life/ Devon Life) and the generous support of Wilkie May & Tuckwood Minehead.
You will find an extensive list of our partners and sponsors here.

      Thank you, Susie, for your kind comments! The voucher will be available for download soon… We are still busy uploading all the information about the restaurants and sponsors. By the middle of next week, the voucher should be there (all fingers and toes crossed). We are also printing leaflets and vouchers which will be available at the restaurants.
      May we quote your comment about the Food Fest?
      Thanks, Elke Winzer

    The upcoming event for Exmoor in a Glass: Gin Tasting afternoon has a confusing location. The Culbone Inn is not at Dunster Steep, did you mean the Luttrell Arms Hotel?

    • Elke Winzer says:

      Apologies for the confusion. The event takes place at The Culbone on the top of Porlock Hill. More detailed information will be pisted on the events page tomorrow. It appears that the wrong postcode was entered in the iCalendar. We will look into this asap.

    • Elke Winzer says:

      I just checked – the mistake is caused by wrong information on the Apple map. It shows the correct location, but insists the road is called Dunster Steep… I have reported it to Apple, but there is no option to change the information manually. As I said – more information will be posted on the Events page tomorrow.
