Food at the Cider House
As proud “foodies”, we take the sourcing and preparation of food very seriously. We are passionate about using locally produced high quality food for all our meals. Indeed, we rear our own pigs and chickens and source fruit and vegetables from our orchard and the Kitchen Garden so that we can offer only the very best Devon Breakfasts.
The indulgence of a leisurely breakfast is an essential ingredient for the Cider House experience; served to your individual table between 8am and 9.30am in our beautiful Breakfast room, with stunning views of the garden.
Our selection of cooked breakfast items can be tailored to meet your requirements and are complemented by our range of cereals, fruits and yoghurts.
Specific dietary requirements can be catered for on requests. We ask that guests detail any requirements at the time of booking.
For those who would like to have recommendation for eating out in the area, we have prepared a Guide to Restaurants and Pubs near the Cider House.
