Thank you for taking the time to visit The Fat Pig website. please read on and learn a little about the ethos of our company and hopefully you'll feel encouraged to come and visit us.
The Fat Pig ltd is all about locally sourced, meat, fish, game, booze, and produce we try to keep food miles low which to be honest isn't difficult when you're surrounded by the green fields, overflowing rivers, rolling moors and coastline of Devon. we rear our own pigs which we then turn into sausages, juicy chops, confit melt in the mouth belly pork, salamis and black pudding. along with our sister pub the rusty bike we aim to use everything but the squeak. we attempt year on year to grow our own salad and vegetables (not always very successful). we shoot our own game and work closely with local land owners and game keepers, where we cant grow it or fatten it ourselves we work with Devon specialist rare breed farmers to bring the best quality meat to our customers plates. Team all this together with a talented, dedicated group of chefs and friendly hospitable folks up front, who are probably all worth more than we can pay, and we hope you end up with an honest experience of Devon and true local produce.
