Lowtrow Cross Inn joins the Exmoor Food Fest for the first time

The Mandala Pizza and Salad Emporium have joined the Exmoor Food Fest

The Mandala brings the best of Exmoor into a fresh new venture in Porlock that combines the traditions of freshly made good pizza, by our pizza king (chef) Kosta, with the freshest ingredients and local produce. We understand that times and diets are changing but wanted to create a place where everyone could enjoy a good meal, be they meatetarian, vegetarian, vegan or gluten free, everyone is included in our menu. So if you want a pizza with wild boar and venison salami topping your peperoni we can do that along side a gluten free base with vegan cheese and everything in between.

We also have a range of fresh salads brought from the traditions of our owners home recipes. They are different and delicious and definitely not what you are expecting.

We are open Thursday to Sunday 11am to 9pm, with a full menu between 12 and 2pm and 5 and 9pm. Outside of these times we have a tasty array of cakes and lighter snacks.

Check out our Facebook page or our Clubs, Classes and Loyalty page for offers, specials and competitions.

The Exmoor Food Fest deal is available from 9 February, Thursdays till Sunday

Exmoor Food Fest celebrates the Taste of Exmoor

In February, the third Exmoor Food Fest will tempt foodies to eat their way across Exmoor when participating restaurants offer two courses for £10/ 3 courses for £15.00.  There will also be markets and food related events during this time, celebrating the best our region has to offer.

A special dinner will launch the 2017 festival at the Luttrell Arms in Dunster on 26 January: Six award winning chefs are going to join Head Chef Barrie Tucker to cook seven courses for some very lucky diners.  The menu is still a secret, but will focus on local produce and seasonal fare.

Exmoor is home to many outstanding local products such as Porlock Oysters and Exmoor Caviar.

Diners at the Exmoor Food Fest launch will be able to taste Wicked Wolf Gin which is handcrafted by husband and wife team Pat Patel and Julie Heap on their property on Exmoor on the banks of the river Lyn.  Nettlecombe based award winning Secret Orchard Cider and Madrigal Ales (brewed in Lynmouth) are two more outstanding local products which are available to sample at some of the Exmoor Markets which will take place in February. 

The Exmoor Food Fest runs through the whole month of February.  Originally the idea of local chef Andrew Dixon, the event is now organised by Elke Winzer who is also behind Exmoor4all (an online platform for all things Exmoor, including an online shop) and the Exmoor Markets which take place regularly at Tesco’s Minehead and other locations around Exmoor.  The Dunster Food Festival will be the grand finale on the Exmoor Food Fest on the last weekend in February.

“The Exmoor Food Fest helps local businesses in the hospitality sector to show off their skills. The festival deal of 2 courses for £10 tempts many people into restaurants at a time of year when business tends to be slow,” explains Elke Winzer.

For the first time, all participating restaurants will take part in the Taste of Exmoor Awards.  Customers will be able to vote online for their best dining experience – the winners will be crowned at the Awards Ceremony at Butlins at the end of March.  Tearooms and village shops are also encouraged to sign up for the Exmoor Food Fest.

Information about all the restaurants signed up for the Exmoor Food Fest as well as tearooms and village shops will be available on the website www.exmoorfoodfest.com
