We are delighted that the Exmouth Land Train will be coming over to Budleigh for the food festival weekend, providing us with a park & ride service on the Saturday and Sunday. The service will run 1/2 hourly between the Lime Kiln car park on the seafront to the High Street, stopping at Mackerel Square, then to the Public Hall where the main events are taking place!
Running every half hour:
If visiting on Saturday or Sunday, best to park at the Lime Kiln car park on the seafront, follow the AA signs!
How many times can you spot us in here!...
The organisers of the Budleigh Food festival are appealing for old fashioned rotary hand whisks to help make puddings for the children’s activities on Mothering Sunday. “It would be wonderful if we could get enough of these whisks so that the children can make puddings with Georgie Porgie”, said Trudie Burne festival Co-ordinator. “The children’s activities are on for the whole weekend with a range of craft and fun activities for children of all ages. Making puddings will be a really fun activity, hands on and messy, but to make it happen we need 10 rotary hand whisks like the one in the photograph.”
Anyone with a spare whisk they would like to donate or lend, can drop it into Robin at Bradleys on the High Street who will pass it onto the festival organisers and it will be put to good use, you might even see it in use on the day! Thank you!

Recently acclaimed as a pioneer of the micro-fest, the Buy Local Food and Drink Festival is putting Budleigh Salterton firmly on the foodie map. A huge addition to this year's event is the exhibitors arena situated in the Lower station road car park behind the Public Hall. Attracting the best of East Devon's produce and catering community, there will be 25 stands offering a variety of temptations from contemporary fudge to African inspired jams and condiments, organic liqueurs and local beers, wines and ciders. You can pedal a bike to blend your own smoothie, take coffee and cake from a Land Rover or tea and savouries from a vintage caravan. With a diverse range of street food stalls there will be something to tickle your tastebuds from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon.
However, the Budleigh Buy Local Festival is about more than what's happening in and around the public hall, take a wander into town and see what the local shops and businesses have on offer. Up and down the high street there are deals, demos and delights to sample. Follow the traybake trail from cafe to cafe and decide for yourself who has created the tastiest festival traybake, try a free starter at the Taj Mahal on Sunday night or enjoy Fish and chips with a 10% at the Premier cafe all weekend long. There are food festival special menus at the Slice of Lyme and at Otterton Mill featuring the very best seasonal ingredients from local suppliers.
And if the festival's musical entertainment whets your appetite, why not stay in and around town on Saturday night for more live music. Listen to Black Hats at the Salterton Arms, dine with jazz at Bowmers, enjoy folk music with cheese and wine in the riding stables' Oak Loft or hear the Budleigh Male Voice choir sing at Temple Methodists Church.
