Fab Food and Fun in Galmpton
If there is one thing for sure if you are staying at Galmpton Touring Park this year, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out!
Thursday night, is usually Steak Night* where you can enjoy any 2 mains and a bottle of wine for £25. For an extra 50p per person, you can also participate in the weekly Quiz Night (maximum team size of 6).
Kitchen hours are usually between 12:00 pm – 2.30 pm for lunch and 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm for dinner (last orders usually being at 9.00 pm).
For something different, just a short walk from Galmpton Touring Park, you can hop on the ferry across the River Dart, over to The Ferry Boat Inn which is another local pub that offers a tantalising menu of fantastic home cooked food. Locally referred to as The FBI, this pub resides on the shore of the River Dart in the quaint village of Dittisham. It has a brilliant atmosphere and great views.
The 1st Sunday of every month from April to September sees Rock on the Beach, which offers a great family day out featuring local music and food – be sure to try the freshly prepared Paella!
Right next door to the FBI you will find something a little different in the family run seafood cafe called The Anchor Stone. Serving local fresh seafood in a stung location you can choose your own lobster or crab or try the fresh oysters and mussels straight form the river in front of you. If you are happier on the waves, why not book a table on the Anchorstone Picnic Boat? If you have trouble getting in, stop for a drink at the FBI first and they will let you know when a table is free. Both these establishments are well worth a visit whilst staying at Galmpton Touring Park, they are close by and with the the beautiful walk and picturesque ferry ride you certainly earn your lunch!
‘Elberry’ is a 1960’s 30ft launch boat, recently refurbished, that can carry up to a maximum of 12 passengers and is licensed to sell alcohol. Pick-up locations include: Dittisham, Dartmouth, Kingswear and Blackness Marine (n.b: other pick-up locations can be arranged, depending on tidal restrictions). Once aboard Elberry, you can enjoy a choice of picnic lunches to include a variety of homemade and local delicacies, as well as afternoon tea.
A superb choice all round!
A fun event scheduled to take place in Galmpton in July this year is the local Gooseberry Pie Festival. It is believed that this traditional date on the local calendar has been held off/on since 1873. Nobody actually knows the link as to where the Gooseberry Pie originates from, but previous fairs have seen a huge pie travel by train into Churston Station and taken in procession to the heart of the village where the local tradition was blessed and the fair set in motion!
The day is simply all about fun, food and family entertainment and makes a great day out with live music, games, stalls and a BBQ – certainly not one to be missed whilst you’re staying at Galmpton!
