Ashburton Food Festival

Ashburton Food Festival

Friday 16th September 2016

Last weekend on September 10th was the annual Ashburton Food and Drink Festival. We had our BBQ running right outside our shop on North Street, in front of the stage, selling our Gribble’s gourmet steak burgers, hotdogs and bacon rolls.

Despite early morning rain the weather cleared and lots of people from the town and surrounding areas came out to enjoy the wide array of local food and drink that was available, all from businesses local to the area.

These festivals are a great way of bringing people into our shops and town centres, and of raising the profile of local produce and producers. It was a great day for our Ashburton shop, which sold lots of hot pies, pasties and meat from the butcher’s counter and raised awareness of our location, the quality of our product and our handcraft Butchery service & expertise.

It was a great event for David and Paul at Gribble’s Ashburton, following on from earlier great news in the week of being awarded Gold in the Taste of the West Butcher’s Shop category, and finalists in the Best South West Butcher’s category. The shop was also recently  given 5* Food Hygiene rating by Teignbridge District Council, which is the best possible score for any food premises, and means that all four of our Gribble’s Butchers shops now carry this rating.
