Staverton Station

We took Kate and Marty out for lunch at the Field Kitchen at Riverford Farm. Riverford is an organic veg producer and The Field Kitchen uses their produce plus other locally produced meat. Lunch is 12.30 for 1 o'clock and tables are set for 8 so unless you're a big party you'll be sharing with others. The food is served on plates for 8 so you're continually serving yourself and passing on as the different components that make up the meal come out bit by bit. You gradually go through starters and onto main course in a continual process. It's a different experience to any i've had anywhere else but it works really well. The food is beautifully cooked and has wonderful flavour. When it comes to desert time the choices become more usual but they are delicious (with a capital D).

On the way back I stopped at Staverton Station for a blip. It's Wideangle Wednesday hosted this week by Freyjad and the theme is Bridge or Footpath. Unfortunately Staverton Station doesn't have a footbridge but obviously there's a path that leads from the ticket office onto the platform (that's the best link I can make on this occasion). Staverton is on the Totnes Buckfastleigh SDR heritage railway.
