Artful presentation and delicious food at The Gallery, 41 Fore Street, Topsham, England. Pictured is the "Calypso experience," a delicious seafood melange, perfectly seasoned. Mark Wright and Paul da Costa Greaves' award-winning restaurant features fresh seafood and organic ingredients. The restaurant also offers local products, including organic chocolate and Luscombe of Buckfastleigh organic lemonade, ginger beer and juices. David and I have dined at The Gallery on three separate trips and been impressed by the wonderful food and excellent service. If you're ever in the area, make sure to have a meal here; you won't be disappointed.
A local artist created this "Grandpa" in the ladies' room at The Gallery. It can be rather startling for unsuspecting patrons who open the door and see this lifesized man sitting atop a wine barrel.
