North Wheddon Farm - Our story
Here on the farm we strive to provide our guests with memorable experience, we understand that food and drink are large part of this.
And as such we take from our own experiences in providing and serving food & drink which will add to your time with us.
From a resturant background we wanted to experience a hands on approach to traditional farming with a view to providing some truly amazing ingredients to cook with. Our story began back in the summer of 2004 when we moved lock stock and barrel onto our old exmoor farm with our young family.
Nowadays if we don't raise it or grow it ourselves then you cn be sure it's locally sourced, whether it's cured, smoked or Aga cooked you can be sure there is a story behind it and a willing tale to tell, just ask if you interested.
Our 3 course dinners are £25.00 and here is a sample menu.
