Another gold for Killerton in the 2016 'Taste of the West' awards
The Killerton Kitchen restaurant has won gold for the second year in a row in the prestigious ‘Taste of the West’ awards, that celebrate fantastic local food and drink in the South West. The judges were highly impressed with the food and service, putting the restaurant on par with other’s in Devon such as the River Exe Cafe and Two Bridges.
Killerton is the only National Trust property to have a full-service bistro restaurant where diners can enjoy high-quality, home-cooked dishes and afternoon teas. Special evening fine dining events are held once a month, that are booked out months in advance.
Changing seasonal menus
Changing seasonal menus include ingredients sourced on or local to the 6,400 acre estate. Tenant farmers Burrow Farm supply award-winning meat, organic milk and dairy goods are supplied by Ashclyst Dairy and vegetables from Broadclyst Community Farm. Clyston Mill, a National Trust watermill just a few miles from the restaurant, grinds the flour for Killerton’s bread and cakes.
Raising money to care for Killerton
The National Trust is a charity and money raised through Killerton’s catering establishments is reinvested back into the estate to fund conservation.
