Croydon Hall

We are delighted to be taking part in this year’s Exmoor Food Fest, celebrating the Taste of Exmoor.

Somerset born chef Andrew Pavey will be cooking up a storm at Croydon Hall with a specially designed menu throughout the February half term.

Whilst passionate about patisserie, he enjoys every section of the kitchen, citing that cooking is a ‘way of life’ for him, as he revels in the art of creating spectacular dishes.

With 25 years of experience working in hotels and restaurants across the region, Andrew feels honoured to have worked for Michael Caine MBE at the Royal Clarence in Exeter, perhaps one of his favourite positions to date.

Come and join us for lunch or dinner at Croydon Hall to taste the menu that Andrew has created for this years’ Exmoor Food Fest.

5 Course Tasting Dinner 

Wednesday 8th March

Celebrated Somerset chef Tim Zekki is coming to Croydon Hall with an exquisite 5-COURSE SECRET TASTING MENU that will set your taste buds alight.  

Tim first started to cook at his father’s restaurant in Cyprus, where he inherited a love of foraging, pickling, and preserving from his grandmother.

He developed his skills in restaurants in London, and his love of fine ingredients led him to open and run two delis, in Isleworth and Twickenham, appearing on Gary Rhode’s Local Food Hero TV series. After a move to the Chilterns, he ran pop up restaurants under the name Duende.

Moving to Somerset meant a chance to settle into a permanent place, where Duende was recognised by Taste of The West, and won Somerset Life’s Best Restaurant in its first year.

Surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside, the views from Croydon Hall are spectacular, the setting tranquil, the pace relaxed. The perfect setting in which to enjoy Tim’s delicious menu with matching wine flight.

Stay over and make a night of it. Each of the 15 bedrooms has been individually designed and appointed and with a combination of double rooms, family rooms and apartments, there’s accommodation to suit everyone.
