Devour Daily

Here you'll find regular updates of what we're up to at the Dyehouse.

Devour at will

Devour at will
Anyone still doing dry January?” 
Yes! Well let’s hear it for all you Devourees that have persevered and stuck with it – (unfortunately, that ship sailed for me two days in, but let’s not go there). So this weekend, marks the end of a gruelling month "Passing on the Pinot" and "Bailing on the Beers". 
So what's the plan? - I just might know the place…..
 
Welcome Devourees to our February update
A rollercoaster start to another year for all things Devour. 
 Many of you will have noticed we closed our doors for a couple of weeks at the beginning of January – spruced the place up a bit, lick a’paint here, lick a’paint there – you may notice a smoother drive into Devour for your next visit -  that’s all I’ll say. And our Deluxe bathroom is now in full working order! Job well done to everyone in involved.
 
(Self-Indulgent Devour Fanfare Please)
We are delighted to announce Devour has been nominated for the prestigious Yorkshire Post Oliver Awards. A glamourous evening dinner ceremony taking place at Elland Road, Leeds, hosted by non-other than, “your own, your very own”, Look North’s Harry Gration.
(So that will make a nice change to clearing the bin store one evening!)
 
AND in-addition, we’ve also been featured in this month’s Yorkshire Life (Feb 2020). A really fabulous write up “Devour at Will” by Emma Mayoh. Spreading the word to would be Devourees county-wide!
 
But what's happening at Devour, I hear you ask?  OK, let’s hit the ground running...
 
Firstly, by “popular demand” we’ve extended our Sunday opening hours to 10:30pm in line with our Friday and Saturday evenings – so now every weekend you can enjoy Devour from 9am for Weekend Breakfast Club
(which if you haven’t tried yet, you really should) through to lunch and full dinner service.
 
Event-wise we kick off on the 11th with our
“Kiss Me Quick” Tuesday Supper club, a little celebration of all things
Saint Valentino, Love and Fertility - as we aim to thrill, tantalize and seduce your taste-buds with
another evening of fine food, drink and merriment. Table Reservations online.
 
Our ever popular Pizza, Pasta and Candle making classes, are also up and running again. With new dates available on our website for March & April inspiring Devourees to “give things a go”.
Class Gift Cards make a really thoughtful present if you are ever stuck for an idea, btw.
 
Finally, we’ve stocked up our Deli with some new sumptuous Salumi, Antipasto and an array of Italian cheeses from our new Sicilian producer. Together with fresh Pasticcerie (buns & cakes)
and of course our signature home-made Italian Gelato all available daily at The Devour Deli.
 
That’s all for now Devourees, let’s hope spring is just around the corner 
as I'm done with this weather now!
 
 
 

December newsletter

December newsletter
Seasons Greetings Devourees!
 
As December brings to a close not only 2019,  the end of the second decade of the “not so” new millennium (all sounds rather grand doesn’t it!). It also marks a very personal and significant milestone for everyone here at Devour. It heralds the first anniversary of the moment we first flung open our doors! 

So let’s hear it Devourees,  “Whoo Hooo Devour is ONE!”
 

If you’ll indulge me for just one moment – I’d like to say a very big thank you to everyone who has worked, supported and championed our little venture here on the banks of the river Holme over the past year. It has truly been a crazy and emotional rollercoaster from the very outset – admittedly, we’ve got a few little things wrong
(in hindsight Holmfirth was not ready for joint his and her toilets), 
However, overall, I’d like to think we’ve got more things right!
 
We’ve had three amazing Supper Club events, where our talented chefs have prepared exciting taster menus inspired by “The River”, “Hunter, Gather, Forage” and “Fire”
with more to follow in 2020.

We’ve had various Pasta & Pizza making events (btw they make ideal gifts and socking fillers for Christmas if you are stuck) and launched our very own “La De Da” coffee range, 
developed with our friends at Darkwoods Coffee. 
PLUS we’re now open every
Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 9am for some amazing DEVOUR Breakfasts.
 
And did I mentioned we’re a NEW ENTRY in the Waitrose Good Food Guide for 2019!!
 
However, it’s the positive little words of support and enthusiasm from locals and guests, from far and wide,  given to both myself and the Devour team that has meant the most – it really has been fantastic –  we do like to think of ourselves as a small family, and it does make a massive difference - so again a big thanks to you all.

So here’s to a successful and exciting second year! (stay tuned Devourees!)
 
Salute and have a very
Merry Christmas!

The Good food Guide 2020

The Good food Guide 2020
We were pretty surprised & overwhelmed to see our name printed in the Good food guide 2020. It has put us on the culinary map so we couldn't wish for much more in year one :)

NOTES - ONE17 Design

NOTES - ONE17 Design

When ONE17 was first approached to look at a run down industrial building near the 'Summer Wine' town of Holmfirth, with a view to converting it into a foodie haven, restaurateur Olivia Robinson was already many months into its planning.

Now that the project is officially open, we put a few questions to her.
