Yarde Farm ice cream - new from June
Yarde Farm have been producing ice cream from their premises in Devon since 1987. Inspired by Italian gelato and using the finest double cream, clotted cream and natural ingredients. We offer two flavours:

clotted cream vanilla - a deep rich vanilla flavour mixed with butter and clotted cream
chunky Belgian chocolate - melt in the mouth chocolate ice cream with Belgian milk chocolate pieces

Yarde Farm's story began in 1987 when a tub was filled expectantly with the very first ice cream at Yarde Farm near Exeter. 10 years and several litres later, Yarde Farm moved to Plympton in the beautiful South Hams, near Plymouth in Devon. This small, friendly team of ice cream enthusiasts produce a national award-winning range of deliciously indulgent ice creams and sorbets using the finest ingredients such as fresh cream, clotted cream and real fruit.

Cheese Plate - new selection from November
Blackstick blue - A blue veined cheese definitely not to be forgotten. It has a mild creamy, soft 'melt in the mouth' texture.
Suitable for vegetarians

Dorstone ash - Made at Dorstone Farm, on the Hereford/Welsh border, the Dorstone ash is a semi-soft cheese made from unpasturised goat's milk using animal rennet. It has a crisp white colour that contrasts with the blueish grey colour of its edible rind resulting from the coating of ash applied to it. Its texture varies from being fluffy to flaky depending on its maturity and its flavour has a slight nuttiness on the rind.
Suitable for vegetarians

Snowdonia red storm - Smartly dressed in vivid red wax, gloriously complex taste due to its 18-21 month maturation that provides the vintage credentials of quality, calcium crystals, a nutty texture and intensity of flavour finishing on notes of caramel, the Red Storm totally redefines what you might expect from a red Leicester. Made with unpasteurised cow's milk.
Suitable for vegetarians

Served with apple and Somerset cider brandy chutney and biscuits.
