Meet our wonderful local suppliers

Almost all of our food and drink is bought from local businesses. We sell Bay’s Beers from Paignton; Hunts Cider from Stoke Gabriel; Sausages from Newton Abbot; milk and cream from dairies in the South West. Our incredible cakes are made for us by local customer Karen Miller, and our own chef Sam Camplin. Our coffee is roasted in Ivybridge by Owen’s. By visiting the Guardhouse, you know that you will be supporting local businesses and local people.
