Book Now The Goods Shed
Catering in Okehampton
As a fully-licensed Hostel we offer catering on both sites (The Goods Shed and Bracken Tor). The Goods Shed has the Granite Way Cafe and the Rail Bar, and these facilities are normally open throughout the School Holidays and at weekends. When schools and groups are on site the Rail Bar is normally closed.
For families, during school holidays and weekends, we usually offer full english breakfast and picnic or buffet lunches and a range of evening meals, all using local sourced ingredients with local beers, cider and wine available for purchase. We usually stock Sams Cider produced by Winkleigh Cider, a well known local company, with award winning cider which goes down well after a day on the moor.
For school groups we offer buffet breakfasts, packed lunches and a range of evening meals, all based on the government guidelines on health and nutrition.
There is normally a vegetarian option on most menus, and we can cater for special dietary needs, such as gluten-free, egg-free diets, as well as those who have a nut-allergy. We offer plenty of seasonal vegetables and salads, especially during the summer season and we have been awarded 'Dartmoor First' status recognising our local support and use of local suppliers.
Catering at Bracken Tor will vary depending on the customers requirements, as there is a small self catering facility as well as the main commercial kitchen. For those booked into the Filter House there is a self-catering kitchen or meals may be pre-booked at the Goods Shed.
