Inn Places: Food Trails and a River Cottage Experience

21 November 2016

Inn Places is so much more than a collection of fabulous inns. Delve deeper into the website and you’ll find fascinating food trails and information on local walks and other activities, independent shopping, and some great places to visit. Inn Places is your ‘one stop’ website for crafting the perfect break away at a cosy pub with rooms.

To enhance your stay we have researched unique Food Trails to give you a real flavour of the area. Each one showcases local artisan producers that supply the inn, local micro-breweries and vineyards offering tours, quality farm shops, deli’s and other good pubs and eateries within a 20-mile radius of each inn. Here are five cracking inns with fabulous food trails to whet
your appetite…

The Wiveton Bell, Wiveton, Norfolk

Just a mile inland from bustling Blakeney and glorious coastal salt marshes, the stylishly spruced up Bell offers a relaxed vibe, gorgeous French-inspired rooms and innovative seasonal menus using produce from local villages along the coast.

We at Inn Places have long admired chef, food writer and campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s uncompromising commitment to local, seasonal and ethically produced food, through his recent hard-hitting Food Fight programmes and his inspirational River Cottage TV series, where he championed Dorset’s artisan suppliers and unearthed the county’s rich larder of produce.

His ethos and passion for local, seasonal food runs deep through his River Cottage Park Farm HQ as it does with so many of our inn owners and chefs who carefully source top-notch produce from local suppliers.
