Sidmouth café and takeaway The Filling Station has revamped its menu with an international flavour.

The shop in Cross Street reopened on March 19 with a range of new dishes, alongside those it was already offering.

Owner Roz Kendall has been running the shop since 2014 with her son Luke Allen and their assistant Abbie Preston.

She said the Covid-19 lockdown had given them the chance to explore and source some exciting new types of cuisine – including foods ‘you can’t get anywhere else in Sidmouth’.

She said: “For a while we have tried to shake off the image of being a pasty shop, and the recent lockdown has galvanized our plans.

“Our new menu highlights fun ‘specials’ from around the world, including Philly Cheesesteak, Egyptian Falafel and the Bombay Birdy – a flatbread containing tandoori chicken and Bombay potatoes - along with a great selection of pizza toasties and American-style hot dogs.

“There are also salad specials - currently ‘that 70s salad’ - prawn cocktail of course.

“We still do our ‘build a sandwich’ where you can choose from an extensive menu of fillings, salads and different breads, and of course we still have everyone 's favourite pasties.

“We also have a great range of delicious donuts, plus gluten-free cakes and pastries alongside our new homemade patisserie tarts - great to box up with ribbons for a yummy gift.”

The Filling Station is open Thursday to Sunday from 10.30am.
