Dining Out in Totnes, Devon
Effings, Totnes, Totnes
Effings is one of the more successful examples of a deli with a difference. The accomplished cooking includes flaked brill in a saffron jelly with caviar, and coq au vin with confit new potatoes make regular appearances on the short but elegant menu. Such places as Effings should be given every encouragement in an increasingly regimented, predictable and shallow world, particularly from the good people of Totnes - quality invariably costs.
