Food & Menus

West Down is a small, friendly Highly Commended Farm Guest House with AA 4 Star Gold Award, and Dinner Award. We are passionate about the food that we serve and being able to use seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs from our own gardens. These are used fresh when in season or directly from our freezers out of season.

The Devon and Exmoor area has an abundant range of quality farms producing excellent food. We strive to use trusted local North Devon suppliers for fresh game, poultry, beef, pork and fish fresh from the Cornish and Devon coasts.

We are experienced in catering for special dietary requirements and are happy to discuss your food requirements with you, prior to your visit, if necessary.

Evening Meals

An optional three course evening dinner with coffee, mints & wine is available. An aperitif of your choice is served in the lounge before dinner. Wine is served with your meal and is included in the price of dinner.

Our sweet trolley is made up of 3 or 4 sweets made by us at West Down Guest House. All are served with Devon clotted cream – but it is not compulsory!!

Coffee and mints are served in the lounge in front of the roaring log fire in the colder evenings. This makes for a perfect end to a perfect day in ‘glorious’, but relaxing North Devon.

Many believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we certainly support this at West Down Bed and Breakfast Guest House.

Perhaps you are embarking on an active day of country pursuits such as golf or walking the South West Coastal Path. Or perhaps you are planning a more leisurely day exploring the Exmoor villages and gardens. Either way, start the day with a full West Country Breakfast or a lighter option from our breakfast menu.

Breakfast is included in the B&B Tariff.
