Our View

An attractive, thatched 13th-century building makes a perfect home for this warm and friendly inn. The bar has a worn stone floor, old chests and polished brass, blending effortlessly with the original oak beams and simple wooden furniture in the dining room. The garden, with a stream running beside it, is the perfect setting for alfresco summer dining. Menus change regularly with an emphasis on fresh local produce, and the homemade food includes soups, omelettes and sandwiches for a lighter lunch, along with pub classics such as fish and chips and steak and ale pie. Don't forget to check out the specials board. The pub's talking Amazon Blue parrot, Captain, has been a fixture and firm favourite for nearly 40 years.

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.
