Bliss Out

Making unforgettable memories at the Gourmet Escape

When you hear that some of the world’s finest chefs, culinary experts and winos amass together with their local counterparts to host the Gourmet Escape you won’t need another reason to go.

But then when we tell you about the premium produce they’ll be using, the exceptional wines they’ll be matching and that you’ll be on the receiving end of the most delicious and innovative cuisine, you’ll be waiting for the release of the tickets with baited breath.

But if you can’t wait ‘til the Gourmet Escape, get a taste of the produce they’ll be sourcing at the farmers’ markets.

If beer is your thing, the chilled-out South West Craft Beer Festival showcases distinctive beers from traditional pale ales and pilsners to preservative and additive free brews together with brave inventive styles.
