WE ARE A SMALL AND SIMPLE, YET A UNIQUE AND CHARACTERFUL DEVON COUNTRY PUB.  'A PROPER JOB PUB' AS IT'S KNOWN AROUND THESE PARTS.  WE'RE A BIT OFF THE BEATEN TRACK BUT 'FOUND OUT OVER', AND WHAT YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND HERE IS  A WARM WELCOME, WITH HEARTY BANTER AND LAUGHTER GUARANTEED.

THIS HIDDEN GEM OFFERS GOOD LOCAL ALES, WHICH INCLUDE TEIGNWORTHY, SKINNERS, SHARPS AND BLACKAWTON. THE DINING ROOM IS KEPT BUSY WITH A GOOD RANGE OF TRADITIONAL PUB FOOD.  OUR MEAT IS SUPPLIED BY A LOCAL BUTCHER AND OUR FISH IS DELIVERED FRESH FROM ST. IVES, SO LOCAL WATERS. AND IF YOU'VE ROOM FOR A FINAL BITE, THEN CLAIRE'S HOME MADE DESSERTS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, OR ALTERNATIVELY SOME LOCAL DARTMOOR ICE-CREAM.

We recommend you to book a table in advance to avoid disappointment. This is particularly necessary at weekends, when the bar and dining room become very busy.  Our telephone number is 01837 82789. Food is served every evening (except Thursdays) between 7pm and 9.30 pm. We offer a good choice menu, and a daily specials board. There's also a bar snack menu available at lunchtimes.

Lunchtime:    Friday- Sunday: 12 noon - 3pm

Evenings:       Monday - Saturday:  6pm - 11pm (no food on Thursday)

COVID 19 UPDATE


   OPENING AGAIN ON 10th AUGUST


We are pleased to announce we are re-opening on 10th August.


Things will be different. But a warm welcome awaits.


Government COVID safety guidelines will be observed, and we hope customers abide by them to keep themselves, other customers AND staff, safe at all times.

There is a one way system in place, and in some places a grid so you only pass through when your exit is clear.


Please call to reserve a table as we have limited space available. We are open as usual, but food service times have changed, so call to check.


We look forward to welcoming you back safely.
