An Evening Tasting with Salcombe Gin (Thursday, 3rd October)

Come and join us for a lovely evening of Gin Tasting at Browns Hotel, Dartmouth from 7.30pm to 8pm.

Throughout the evening you can expect to be informed and entertained by Salcombe Gin, who are not only supplying their delicious spirit for the event but will also be talking you through the intricacies of gin production, and bringing along their mixologist to talk you through the making of different cocktails.

You will, of course, be able to sample these cocktails, along with canapes created to complement each drink for just £20 per person. 


Festival Feast at the Flavel (Saturday, 12th October)

We celebrate the opening of the Festival once again with our renowned Festival Feast. The event will take place in the Flavel Hall from 7pm where you will be welcomed with a drink on arrival courtesy of Salcombe Gin. 

This year we are fortunate to have not one but three exciting local establishments to cook for us. You will be treated to a delicious starter by Hayden Bennett from the Royal Dart Yacht Club , Simon & Serin from Dartmouth Fine Foods will take over the reins for the main course and Peter Alcroft from the Dart Marina Hotel will round off this delicious trio with dessert. 

Seating will be in tables of 10 and you are welcome to make up a table or find new friends on a shared table. Michael Sutton’s cellar will kindly be providing the wine and the Flavel bar will be open for any other requirements.  

All this for only £37.50 per person!!

The Seahorse Lunch (Thursday, 5th December)more information to follow soon
Dart The Dart (Saturday, 16th May 2020) - more information to follow soon

A fun filled foodie run along the banks of the River Dart from Totnes to Dartmouth.

Along the way up to 400 runners will sample various culinary delights and take on board liquid refreshments at a host of different venues, all whilst wearing fancy dress.

This run is designed to be purely for fun and and to raise vital funds for the Dartmouth Food Festival 2020.  It is most certainly not a race.  The distance is around 13miles or so and will be tough in places but the views and scenery will be spectacular and the camaraderie and support will make it all worth it!!

Details on how to get involved will be published very soon.
