Dartmouth Food Festival

Friday 18th to Sunday 21st October

Dartmouth Food Festival 

Having grown from humble beginnings in 2002 into a first class feast of entertainment featuring workshops, seminars, tastings, competitions, demonstrations and over 120 hand-picked exhibitors, it truly is the very best that the South West has to offer. Described in The Telegraph as a ‘heady mix of celebrity chefs, parties, food markets, tasting shacks and demonstrations’, the festival is now a landmark event on the culinary calendar and offers free entry for all.

As the Festival takes place on the banks of the River Dart, we are playing our part in tackling the growing environmental crisis caused by unwanted plastic. So, this year sees the Festival reducing single use plastics and moving towards 100% use of compostable cutlery, cups, plates and packaging. We will also be encouraging visitors to be greener by offering free water refills throughout the town (including here at The Royal Castle Hotel).

There will be an abundance of locally-produced, high quality products on our market stalls this year. So it is no wonder Dartmouth is the perfect setting for what has been described as a feast for the senses – With incredible chefs such as Mitch Tonks, Mark Hix, Ely Wentworth, Mark Tebbutt among many others joining us this year, the stage is set for it to be our best Festival yet!

In The Hotel…

In celebration of Dartmouth Food Festival we will be serving a special three course menu in our AA Rosette Restaurant, The Grill Room. Expect a culinary night to remember with a menu designed to showcase the best local, seasonal produce that South Devon has to offer.
