For us food is a very important part of the North Walk House experience. We are passionate about it and as we are members of Slow Food UK, we believe that food should taste good and be enjoyed; be produced in a way that respects the environment, human health and animal welfare; and that food producers are treated fairly. Accordingly your food will travel as little as possible to reach the dinner table at North Walk House, and seasonal foods will guide the menu choices on a monthly basis. We strive to obtain our Food direct from local farmers who provide free range/organic produce.
Fresh fruit salad, fruit juice, organic muesli, organic dry cured back bacon and award winning sausages from Jo and Tim at Higher Hacknell Farm; organic, free-range eggs from Jackie and Roger at Little Comfort Farm, and for fish lovers kippers/haddock supplied by Passmores. Fresh organic home-made bread is always available either wholemeal (or sometimes malted brown) and white five seeded bread with local Exmoor honey, homemade marmalade, jams and Fair Trade Organic coffee or tea.
We love to provide dinner and offer a seasonal menu. We aim to ensure that the ingredients are good enough to allow us to prepare tasty meals which we are sure you will like. Food is prepared in our kitchen and carefully cooked on the Aga. We offer flexibility for likes and dislikes, vegetarians, vegans and special dietary needs.
Dinner can be booked and is served from between 7.00 and 7.30pm. We cook from fresh so if you would like dinner please let us know at least by the morning with your choices for dinner in order to allow us to prepare. For our own sanity we need to take some evenings off each week, so the kitchen will generally be open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, although dinner can be provided on other nights by special arrangement. You are welcome to enjoy a drink before-hand in our guest sitting room. Please let us know before your arrival if you have any special dietary requirements.
You will sit around the large refectory style dining table, with sea views, and a log burning stove in winter. Seating aims to respect individual’s privacy while allowing other guests to share conversation. To compliment the food we are licensed, allowing us to serve drinks and wine from our carefully selected wine list. Relax and enjoy the experience, candlelight and a little gentle music.
