“Everything that is great about British cooking, growing, harvesting, catching, eating, and drinking is represented here for the four wonderful days of the Dartmouth Food festival every October. It is a festival that is loved by locals and visitors alike and is now a landmark event in the culinary calendar. It is a party atmosphere from start to finish and is held on the banks of the beautiful River Dart which was voted the second most desirable coastal location in the UK in a recent national poll.
I absolutely love it and love being part of it.”
