Come on folks, don't be shy, surely you must know of some food and drink producers worthy of a mention in this section. Karen and I are thinking of taking a break in the West Country in the next month or so and we hope to visit this establishment. The website charts the rise of this small pioneering business.

Ullacombe Farm shop on the way up to Haytor from Bovey Tracey.  They have a very successful cafe now too.  I think it's closed on Mondays.

Oh and the best meat pies in the world are made a Luder's Swiss Patisserie in Teignmouth, Waterloo Street.  They say they're pasties but they're not and it doesn't matter!

Oh, thanks for that Sue, we're down at Mother-in-Law's later in the week so will have to swing by Luder's when we're in Teignmouth where I intend to ransack the most fantastic kitchenalia shop I've ever known - I'd say it was small (it's a tiny shop) but perfectly formed.  McGregors in Lower Brook Street.

We went to The Dining Room in Ashbourne, Derbyshire for their "tasting menu" on Saturday and I can honestly say I have never had such wonderful food in all my life.  85% of the food is sourced within 30 miles radius of the restaurant.  I have written about what we had on my blog here http://wwwcutleryandcateringcouk.blogspot.com/
How one chef managed to cook and present all that and still take time to pop into the dining room to explain the substitution he had made to a course for a diabetic on our table I will never know.
We had 16 small courses!

Mr. Moo's Ice Cream parlour, skipsea, east yorkshire.

The cafe/ice cream parlour is lovely, and the ice cream needs no advertising, believe me it speaks for itself. I've known people come for a day out from outside yorkshire just for a trip to the parlour to stock up.

And Bodger, you surely can't go to the West Country without visiting Hidden Valley Pigs?  I'm hoping to get there in August (Debbie, I will PM in a day or so about possible dates).

MrsWW, I don't know that shop I'm ashamed to say, I'll check it out when I'm down there in August.   Also, Luder's do a sort of lemon cheesecake roll in the lightest sponge ever.  Yum yum yum!
