Bideford is awash with some incredible gastro pubs, licensed restaurants and cafes nestled within its winding streets, we actively encourage visitors when attending our event to seek out some of these hidden gems and enjoy the hospitality which will be on offer for the entire duration of the event. To that end, some of the establishments will be offering their patrons themed entertainment as part of the wider celebrations in the town on New Year’s Eve. For your convenience, there will also be a great selection of mobile caterers positioned on The Quay throughout the day, with a great selection of food and drink available through until the early hours.

The consumption of alcohol is permitted but ONLY on the licensed premises, from 18:00hrs through until 02:00hrs on the 1st January or other authorised areas or places during hours decided by the Management and the right is reserved to close bars or refuse to serve patrons at any time.
