Enjoy a two-course vegan lunch and conservation talk at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon as part of the Taste East Devon Festival.
Enjoy the last of the summer flavours with The Kitchen’s pop-up two-course vegan lunch as part of the Taste East Devon Festival, sourced where possible from within our beautiful corner of Devon.

After lunch, take a gentle stroll around the sanctuary with a member of our conservation team and hear how being responsible for such a large number of animals means we also have a duty of care towards their environment. Ultimately, if our land is well cared for, the land will look after our donkeys in return.
2-course vegan menu

Baby aubergine kofta, grilled flatbread, lightly pickled red cabbage, pureed and roasted pumpkin, toasted pumpkin seeds, almond cream cheese and micro coriander.

Roasted cauliflower steak, sweet potato puree, red onion bhaji, lime and mango salsa, toasted peanuts.

Sticky pear and ginger pudding, butterscotch sauce, vanilla custard, walnut crumb.

Plum and rhubarb tarte tatin, candied pecans, salted caramel ice cream.
Please make your selection at the time of booking and advise us of any dietary requirements. A selection of drinks will be available to purchase on the day.

Scything demonstration
There has been a huge renaissance in scything of late and a lot of people are keen to reconnect with this traditional method of cutting grass. Join The Donkey Sanctuary’s Conservation Officer, Daniel Brown, to discover how we manage our wildflower meadows at our idyllic home in East Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Tickets cost £16.50 per person, including the two-course lunch and conservation talk. Pre-booking is required and there are a limited number of tickets available, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Further information
Dogs are welcome at the sanctuary and The Kitchen restaurant, but please keep them on a lead at all times.
