The Kings Arms Otterton

Win a Devon Weekend Break

We are delighted to offer the chance to win a two-night stay for two people at the Kings Arms Otterton. The Prize includes a Greendale Hamper on arrival, full of the Westcountry's finest produce; breakfast and dinners are also included. 

Nestled in the heart of beautiful Otterton, The Kings Arms is a traditional Devon pub, full of old-world charm. This cosy, dog-friendly pub is an ideal pit-stop on walks along the nearby coast; it’s also close to the River Otter and handy for the beaches at Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth.

Sausage and Potato Barbecue Skewers Recipe

Sausage and Potato Barbecue Skewers Recipe

This simple recipe is put together and partially cooked before it reaches the barbecue, so you won’t have to wait long for the skewers to be ready (if the weather is looking grim you can always cook the skewers indoors, under the grill). Serves 4-6.

Steak – a Barbecue Classic

Steak – a Barbecue Classic

We offer a good variety of different beef steaks, including Rib-Eye, Flat Iron, Sirloin and Rump, so you can stock up on supplies for your next barbecue. Here are a few tips for successful barbecued steak.

Basic Grilled Halloumi Recipe

Basic Grilled Halloumi Recipe

Once you’ve got the hang of grilling Halloumi, you can jazz it up with any extra ingredients that take your fancy – we like it served with chilli jam, or a drizzle of honey and a pinch of smoked paprika.

Pleasure of Picnics

Picnics and summer days

Picnics and summer days make for happy memories (somehow, rain and wasps just add to the experience!). Whether you like to pack a hamper with carefully chosen luxurious treats, or just grab some bread, cheese and fruit to assemble later, one thing is certain - everything tastes better outdoors. Happily, Greendale Farm Shop has a great selection of picnic fare, from our home-made pork pies, pasties, sausage rolls and Scotch eggs to salads, fresh fruit and veg, local cheeses and charcuterie, chutneys, crisps and crackers. We also sell delicious bread from local bakeries and freshly caught and cooked crab and lobster, as well as wine, beer, cider and scrumptious sweet treats. Why not pop into the store or visit our website and put together your perfect picnic, then head out into the sunshine for some al fresco fun!
