British Wine On The Up As Davenport Vineyard Proves ‘A Cut Above’

Tasting Somerset Food Excellence At Yeo Valley London

Tasting Somerset Food Excellence At Yeo Valley London

The world's your oyster. Now perhaps the next best thing to a taste of Somerset in the West Country itself but without the hassle of a 120-mile drive down the road from London, could well prove to be a trip to Yeo Valley’s café in Queensway in west London. And, so with this in mind I trotted off to what was touted as the "first-ever" Somerset and Exmoor food and drink experience in the capital last week. Producers from the county were there aplenty.
