Visit Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink this May

A popular fixture on the food festival calendar, foodies and chefs alike love The Exeter Food and Drink Festival. 

It's held in the scenic grounds of Exeter Castle Courtyard and Northernhay Gardens and by day food is the sole focus of the event. 

The festival celebrates the food and drink of the South West. Expect more than 100 regional chefs, food producers, workshops and food-themed activities. A wander through the stalls and marquee will leave the senses tingling and there's much to be learnt on how to best prepare and cook local delicacies. Our own Dez Turland, Group Development Chef at Brend Hotels, has attended the event in the past.  

Then, by night, live music gives the festival a party feel - perfect for dancing off all that food.

So whether you're swinging by or want to experience the whole weekend, we recommend taking the time to visit this mouth-watering event. Then it's up to North Devon and The Imperial Hotel where your luxury accommodation awaits.
