More silverware may be on the way for an Ottery eatery as it has been named in contention for Restaurant of the Year.

The Rusty Pig has made the final three names shortlisted for this year’s Devon Life Food and Drink Awards.

The Yonder Street restaurant has been in the town since 2011 and is proud of its ethos to use the freshest seasonal ingredients from local suppliers.

In August, the business brought home two silver medals from the British Charcuterie Awards for its hog’s pudding and pancetta.

Owner Robin Rea, is one of three in-house chefs, and said: “The whole team is thrilled with this recognition of our hard work and high standards.
