Gorge festival food and drink

Enjoy fresh cooked, local food at Top of the Gorge Festival

We're welcoming a selection of local food vendors. Find out who'll be joining us at the festival.

The festival will feature gourmet hot food from nearby farms and artisan street vendors. We'll champion local produce from Yeo Valley Dairy – served by a DJ in a disco ice-cream van.

No visit to Cheddar would be complete without tasting the product that put it on the map. We will of course be selling cave-matured Cheddar cheese from Cheddar Gorge Cheese Co.

Local producers are proud of their links to the landscape. Our vendors look forward to introducing festival goers to a tasty, Mendip-infused experience.

'It’s the unique qualities of the rich pastures surrounding the Gorge that lend our cheese its flavour and character' says Mark Brady from the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Co.

Jem Ham from Cheddar Ales names many of his popular beers after famous Mendip features and pastimes, including Gorge Best, Totty Pot, Velvet Bottom and Potholer.

'Top of the Gorge will be a true home-from-home festival for us', says Jem.

Chris Jefferies, a mountain biker and owner of Axbridge based GinJar, agrees.

'We grew up around extreme sports so wanted to design a gin brand that fits with our lifestyle. Living in the Mendips we locally source elderflower for our elderflower gin and rhubarb for our rhubarb-and-ginger gin, and this festival is the perfect place to showcase these products.'
