Our View

Overlooking the Teign Estuary, this friendly pub, dating from the 16th century, but with later additions, is to be found below Haldon Moor in the quiet village of Bishopsteignton. Downstairs it retains much of its historic character, although it has been opened up to create a lovely bar and restaurant with log fires, with plenty of original features, including the gallery landing, beams and fireplaces. Menus are strong on local produce and pub classics, and you really ought to book for Sunday lunch. At lunchtime choose from sharing platters, ciabattas, sandwiches and classics like ham, egg and chips. In the evening you might start with prawn and crayfish cocktail, followed by vegetable hotpot; or duck breast with dauphinoise potatoes, orange and dark cherry sauce. The refurbished bedrooms are all named after sailing craft.

About The area

Discover Devon

With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.

Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them. 

Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
