Valentine’s Day 2021 – Restaurant Food (& other treats) at Home


Valentine’s Day!

One thing’s for sure, LOVE can’t be locked down… with the January blues nearly over, we’re rosy with excitement, and have rounded up the lush Valentine’s Day offerings for enjoying at home.

With the twinkly lights of Christmas now packed away, the longer and darker nights have felt a bit more noticeable, but we’re now over the mid-way point of January and need something to look forward to during the next locked-down weeks. We’ve seen quite a few people on Facebook groups asking about Valentine’s Day dining, so below is what is currently on offer around the county that we have seen. Don’t delay in booking your feast!

Devon businesses – offering something tasty for Valentine’s Day? Please let us know or tag us on our socials, and we’ll add you to the list below as well as our Instagram highlights.

Diners – please remember the Stay At Home rules and therefore please opt for a venue within your local area, no matter how tempting the offering. A lot of restaurants are still closed so the options are much more limited than normal, but nonetheless most of the below are award winning so we hope you are able to indulge whilst supporting local!

Even if you aren’t into celebrating this commercially driven date normally, with dining out a no-no, how can you resist the excuse to eat a lush dinner and get cosier than normal with your other half? (with no babysitters, maybe involve the kids? Rather not… oven meal and early to bed it is then…) And hey, if you’re single…do a Bridget Jones and just dive into the lot or make it last two evenings! Win-win we say!

Sending our own love to you all – readers and businesses, take care in these odd times and please tag us on socials if you enjoy any of the below, we’d love to know!
