Here at Annabelles Kitchen we are fully committed to using the best seasonal local produce we can find - and it is in abundance in Devon! Our menu will change with the seasons, and each day we offer special dishes using what our suppliers and producers have available on that day. We will always endeavour to use Devon produce but sometimes we might have to creep over into Somerset, Dorset or Cornwall!
