Dining Out

Inspired by freshness and seasonality, our chefs showcase this array of fresh local produce in world class restaurants such as The Salopian Inn,  Flying Fish, Leonards Mill, Blues and d'Arry's Verandah. 

It's at the heart of the fare served in many a winery café.

If you're a resourceful visitor, pack a hamper of crusty bread, tasty cold meats, marinated olives, a cheese or two and a bottle of local wine, and take your picnic to a secluded cliff-top to enjoy the spectacular sea views.

Look for the bakeries in almost every town, and the fish and chip shops that make dining beside the sea such a pleasure. Ask the locals … they all have their favourites.
