The areas of Dittisham, Dartmouth and the South Hams are full of award-winning restaurants, pubs and bistros serving fresh, locally-sourced food.
Devon is famous for its fresh seafood, succulent beef and local produce. If you're after the full gourmet experience for a celebratory meal, homemade pie and a local brew in a charming village pub, or a slow evening wander along the shore with fish and chips, there’s plenty of choice.
