Muddy’s Little Black Book of fab local businesses!

If you’ve been reading about the Little Black Book on Twitter or various newsletters and have been wondering what the bejesus it’s all about, then you have come to the right place – I thought it was high time I give you the low-down on our exclusive little (but growing) directory.

Since the yellow pages stopped thudding through our letterboxes in I-can’t-remember-when, Google has become the number one go-to place to find local businesses, pubs and restaurants. But, which site should you click on and who should you trust?

Well that’s where Muddy comes in! The Little Black Book is our hand-picked endorsement of the very best shops, eateries, services, cultural and leisure experiences in Devon. It is an exclusive club, and we wouldn’t feature any business we wouldn’t recommend to a friend.

Entirely Devon-based and vetted personally by me before anything so much as puts a toe through the Muddy door, The Little Black Book will be there for you – whether you’re after a lunch recommendation or or an exclusive party venue. This is the Muddy Stilettos mark of quality that our loyal subscribers, as well as our 301,000 national subscribers will immediately recognise.

We’re excited to shout about those businesses that offer a high quality product or service, a stylish physical space (for those with premises), exceptional customer service or something different, unique and unusual and that sets them apart.

With a fresh new design and new members joining up every week, it will be an invaluable resource that’s also available on the move.

If you’re a Devon based business and want to be considered for the growing Muddy club, just get in touch at So whether you’re looking for great places in Devon, or you are the great place; here’s to getting Muddy together : )
