The Kitchen at The Donkey Sanctuary

About

The sanctuary is currently closed in line with the Government's Covid-19 restrictions, full details can be found at https://www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk/coronavirus-covid-19

 

Indulge in a serving of farm-fresh food, while soaking in the unparalleled views across donkey paddocks, Devon’s rolling hills, and the Jurassic Coast. 

Take sanctuary in the Taste of the West award-winning restaurant and choose from the colourful menu, packed with fresh, local, seasonal produce. All dishes are made on-site by the expert chefs who have hand-picked only the freshest ingredients for you to enjoy.  

Hearty breakfasts, luscious lunches and tempting afternoon treats are dished up daily – best served with friends, family and fabulous views. 

As a passionate animal welfare organisation, all meat dishes are responsibly sourced from producers with high standards of farming and welfare, while vegan or vegetarian options are prominent and varied. Good practice, good for the environment, good for you. 

What’s more, every penny of profit from The Kitchen goes towards helping the donkeys and mules in the Charity’s care and in communities around the world – an extra helping for the hardworking animals who are most in need. 

Once you’ve satisfied the foodie in you, take time to digest the scene that unfolds out from the restaurant veranda. Of if the food has put a pep in your step, go roaming along one of The Donkey Sanctuary’s many scenic trails and walks. Who knows what fuzzy friends you’ll meet along the way! 

Open daily from 9am – 5pm*, 364 days a year, admission and parking at the sanctuary are free and dogs on leads are welcome. 

*4pm November – February.
