At Gitcombe “Home Cooking with Dan and Charlie”

Dan and Charlie ran the successful Cellar Door restaurant at Sharpham Vineyard for 4 years. With the vineyard now relocating to Stoke Gabriel, they decided to focus their energy on a smaller operation based from their smallholding in Bugford where they live with their young son, Charlie’s mother and an assortment of animals. They share a love of produce-driven, seasonal food, and being involved in every stage of production, with much of the produce they use being sourced from their own kitchen garden.
