There’s plenty of choice close by. Lovely country pubs, restaurants with sea views, sublime fish and chips and some great takeaway options too.
There will be a Devon farmhouse cream tea waiting for you when you arrive at Kerswell Farm. If you would also like a cake or some home-made cookies to make your time with us extra special, let me know in advance and I will get baking. A few ideas…
- Farmhouse fruit cake
- Lemon drizzle
- Buttery oat cookies (fruit and nuts optional)
G E Honey and Son is the fabulous butcher in Parkham selling home-grown and locally-produced meat. There’s a fabulous wet fish shop in Appledore and excellent small convenience shops with Post Offices not far away in Woolsery (plenty of local produce here) and Bucks Cross. There are many supermarkets in Bideford and most supermarkets will deliver to Kerswell Farm. There’s also an organic shop selling fresh produce and all manner of supplies on the way into Appledore.
It’s always difficult to recommend places to eat, as they change often, and tastes vary – these are just a few of those that we have tried and enjoyed or have been highly recommended to us by people we trust!
The Bell Inn, Parkham
The Bell Inn in Parkham is a friendly pub with a decent menu and good beer and cider although service can be rather slow.
The Royal Plaice
Excellent fish and chips in Appledore, take away and eat on the Quay or have it delivered to the pub opposite and enjoy a drink as well!
The Farmers Arms, Woolsery
Highly recommended, interesting food and fantastic décor. Booking essential.
The Seagate, Appledore
The Seagate on the quay in lovely Appledore, dog-friendly and great seasonal food. Very popular!
The Royal George, Appledore
A favourite of ours, booking highly advisable. Dog friendly and fabulous food, service and views.
The Coach and Horses, Buckland Brewer
Old and traditional country pub with very good food and a friendly welcome, only a few miles away.
