Who’s going to join us?

The Exmoor Food Fest will be taking place from 01 to 28 February 2015, and we would love you to be part of it.

We are inviting outstanding Exmoor restaurants to take part in the Exmoor Food Fest with two courses for £10.00 /three courses for £15.00, using locally sourced ingredients.  It is a great opportunity to showcase Exmoor and the restaurant at a time of year when it is notoriously quiet. 

How does it work?
Customers who want to make use of the Exmoor Food Fest offer will have to fill in a voucher with their details – an excellent way to grow the restaurant’s and the Exmoor Food Fest’s database.  With their bill customers will receive another voucher for another meal.
The event will be promoted extensively with flyers, ‘Save the Date’ cards, website, social media and traditional media events. All registered restaurants will receive a certain amount of flyers with vouchers to hand out to guests.
Logos and contact details for all participating restaurants will be on all flyers and other marketing material.
Customers will also receive a “Taste of Exmoor Passport” which can be stamped at all participating restaurants. Anyone with more than a set number of stamps will enter a prize draw.

How much does it cost?
Participating restaurants will have to pay a registration fee of £50.00.  Click here to register.

What else will be happening at the Exmoor Food Fest?
We will be working with students and tutors at the West Somerset College in Minehead.  Chefs from participating restaurants will cook an ‘Exmoor Menu’ with the students which will be served to paying guests at the College restaurant.
We will be inviting chefs to take part in this fantastic opportunity in due course.

A number of other events are also being looked into – we will update you as soon as we know more!

Who are the organisers?
The Exmoor Food Fest is organised by ‘Exmoor4all’ (run by Cultureline Events & Publicity Ltd) in very close cooperation with The Café at Porlock Weir’s Andrew Dixon.  

What happens now?
Please register as soon as possible to make sure you don’t miss out.
We also need your logo, some text about the restaurant and a sample menu for the website.
If you register before 31 May 2014, you will be listed on all our marketing material.  It will still be possible to register later, however, you might miss out on being represented on some of our marketing material.

We have already had fantastic feedback from local restaurants and potential sponsors.  It would be fantastic if your establishment was part of the Exmoor Food Fest.  We are happy to discuss further details with you in person.  

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
