We have won awards for our breakfasts! We use local produce wherever we can and John makes our own Seville orange marmalade and plum and rhubarb and ginger jams.
Our light and airy sun-filled dining room has wonderful views over Dartmoor and our wildlife garden, ensuring you a relaxing start to your day. Breakfasts at Overcombe House are delicious and a real treat! We believe in serving fresh food using the best ingredients and this is why your cooked breakfast is always prepared to order.
To start you can help yourself to our tempting buffet. Choices include squeezed fruit juices, a range of cereals, seasonal fresh fruit medley (May to September), citrus mix and yoghurts. As you enjoy your buffet choices, you can select your cooked breakfast from our extensive menu.
Our cooked breakfast options range from the more traditional to lighter fish and vegetarian choices with the emphasis always on local, homemade, organic and fairtrade produce. Our Cornish back bacon is dry cured and then oak smoked using traditional methods and our artisan sausages are handmade. All meat that we serve comes from our local butcher, Bidders of Yelverton. As you would expect, our eggs are free-range and come from a farm near Cotehele just on the other side of the river Tamar.
We believe in 'keeping it local' for a number of reasons:
There are plenty of top quality food and drink producers in this area
We are supporting local businesses
We are keeping food miles to a minimum.
