Dartmoor Discovery Ultra Marathon - not for the faint hearted!

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in May 2018

We're proud and honoured to be sponsoring the legendary Dartmoor Discovery (DD) ultramarathon, which goes back to its roots this year with a special 20th anniversary route celebrating the race’s original 34-mile course.

The 2018 Dartmoor Discovery (affectionately known as the DD) starts and finishes in Princetown, home of Dartmoor Brewery, on 2nd June, celebrating the early years of the race, before the route was changed to avoid a busy road.

Race Director Roger Hayes said: ‘The DD attracts some of toughest athletes in the ultramarathon discipline. The 2018 course will offer these athletes the opportunity to truly test themselves against the event’s classic, turn-of-the-century...

Pub of the Week: The Rugglestone Inn

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in May 2018

 

Take to the open roads of Dartmoor on a glorious Summer day, and the chances are you will soon discover the perfect moorland village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. 

You’ll want to take time to explore the village for sure and marvel at the 120 foot tower which marks the 14th Century parish church – known as the “Cathedral of the Moor”.  But when you’ve finished exploring, take a stroll down a leafy lane from the village square and you’ll discover the glorious Rugglestone Inn.

This unique and unspoilt Dartmoor hostelry – now Grade II listed - started life as a cottage, and was converted to...

Celebrating the World's Longest Pub Crawl!

We've teamed up with our good friends at the Pub2Pub Expedition to celebrate their completion of the world's longest pub crawl, with a very limited edition Expedition IPA - and metal health charity Mind is set to benefit too.

After successfully completing their 27,000 mile journey across 25 countries, from the northernmost pub on the planet, to the southernmost, the Pub2Pub Expedition IPA is a well-deserved thirst-quencher, and is inspired by their epic journey. 

We'll let Expedition leader and Plymouth local Ben Coombs explain:

"From the North American craft beer scene, to the innovative stouts of the Bogata Brewing Company, the Pub2Pub Expedition has been...

Pub of the Week: The Thatched House

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in May 2018

Introducing our Pub of the Week - the excellent Thatched House in Exeter.

The Thatched House has all the hallmarks of a traditional country pub (including a thatched roof, rather obviously!), but is just a stone's throw from the heart of Exeter.  The Thatched House is a destination in itself, but also makes a good refreshment stop if you're having a walk along the River Exe (you could always park close to Exeter's historic quayside district, then have a pleasant 20 minute stroll upriver towards Exwick, where you'll find the Thatched House).

Real ales, real food, and real fires are at the heart of...
