Who

Devon Food Movement

is a collaborative pop-up restaurant concept set up by former

Michelin star development chef Luke Fearon. Our company aim is to celebrate Devon’s unique and world class produce through a series of temporary dining experiences, where we link talented local chefs, producers and food heroes with restaurants, farms or unique locations throughout Devon

(and sometimes a little beyond).



At all these events we produce and serve small plated set menus to allow diners to explore a true taste of each location at any given time within the season. The premise for most Devon Food Movement events is the ‘five-mile food’ challenge. This is where collaborators are challenged to find as many prime ingredients from within a five-mile radius of the event location to feature on our menus. This keeps us hyper-local, hyper-seasonal and untamed in our approach to what we believe fine Devon food is all about.



Devon was shaped by our Anglo-Saxon heritage. Throughout this web page and on much of the text at our events we translate our key words into Anglo-Saxon runes as a nod to our history and counties identity.



During Roman rule Devon, as we know it today, was a part of the kingdom of Demonia. When the Anglo-Saxons invaded they split up the kingdom into sub-kingdoms (or shires) this is when Devonshire was born. Many of our rich agricultural and fishing rituals have deep history in this period. However the Anglo-Saxons didn’t venture as far as the Cornish Celts because of the uncivilised way in which they used to put jam on scones before cream….Sorry Cornwall you could have been Cornwallshire.
