  • My favourite Devon find
    The alfresco café at Sharpham and what they do with Teignmouth mussels is incredible, plus their crushed potatoes with crispy chicken skin is naughty but necessary! All washed down with a (large) glass of Sharpham Bacchus whilst losing himself in the beautiful Dart Valley is his perfect afternoon!
    Greg Parsons
    Greg is the ‘Big Cheese’ at artisan maker Sharpham Dairy and is passionate about food, drink and Devon being a local lad that has always worked in the food and drink sector.
  • My favourite Devon find
    I love all the wide varieties of food and drink that Devon has to offer but I am particularly partial to a pie or pasty (or both) to eat at the beach.

  • My favourite Devon find
    Enjoying a proper Devon cream tea by the coast (with cream on first, of course). But always keep one eye on the seagulls!
