Totnes bustling Fore Street has added another new edition to its foodie address book with the opening of Gather. This fine dining restaurant is the brainchild of three 20-something friends –Harrison Brockington, Declan Wiles and Oli Rosier – who met while studying at Exeter College. Under the guidance of restaurant manager James Skeffington, the trio are knocking out modern dishes centred around Devon’s shoreline, fields and hedgerows.
“With a focus on less favoured and underused cuts of meat, forgotten fruits and vegetables from the hedgerows, and fish and seafood from the shorelines and rivers of Devon, we believe we can create a regional style of cooking on a par with any of the finest French, Spanish and Italian giants,” says James. Gather is open for lunch and dinner, Tuesday to Saturday.
