Pot Luck night every Monday at The Horn of Plenty Restaurant in Devon
The History Of The Famous Pot Luck Menu
For some 40 years, Monday night at The Horn of Plenty has affectionately become known as Pot Luck night. When it was introduced by founders Patrick and Sonia Stevenson, it was at a time when fresh deliveries of food could only be delivered on a Tuesday morning and therefore in order to open on Monday evening, any remaining produce in the fridge from the weekend would be used.
As a result, quality and freshness would not be compromised but choice was limited and therefore a reduced menu price was offered to compensate guests for at times not being able to accommodate their first choice.
Over time, Pot Luck evenings became one of the busiest times of the week and the tradition of the reduced price has continued to this day, despite the fact that these days, ingredients are delivered daily and the guests' selection is always available.
Today, we offer a choice of three starters, three mains and three desserts for just £29 for 3 courses, compared to our normal table d'hote price of £49.50. Two further choices for each course are available at a small supplement.
