Pub of the Week: The Fortescue Arms

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

Perfectly situated between coast and country, meet our Pub of the Week, the Fortescue Arms.

This very picture-postcard country pub can be found in the heart of the charming Devon village of East Allington.  It’s a little off the beaten track (and all the better for it!), but very easy to get to, situated between the bustling market town of Totnes, and some of South Devon’s coastal beauty spots including Salcombe, Start Point and Slapton.

This traditional Devon hostelry dates back to the 19th century, and bears the name of the local landowner.  As you step through the front door, you’ll find all...

Pub of the Week: The Avon Inn

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

You’ll find the Avon Inn in the tiny Devon village of Avonwick, where the rugged scenery of Dartmoor gives way to the soft but stunning landscapes of the South Hams.  A traditional country pub, but not too far off the beaten track.

It’s a lovely pub, whatever the time of year.  A wood-burning stove for fireside chats in the winter, and a big garden for al-fresco lunching in the summer.

Just behind the pub flows the River Avon, as it makes its journey from the Avon reservoir on Dartmoor, to the South Devon seaside at Bigbury on Sea.

You’ll find our Jail Ale...

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

We're excited to be sponsoring, once again, the Pivot TwentyFour12 endurance cycling event - brilliant two-wheeled fun, with a family-friendly festival feel, but definitely not for the faint-hearted! 

The event takes place from 26th to 29th July 2018 in the stunning setting of Newnham Park in Plymouth. 

There's a 24-hour race, a 12-hour daytime race, and a nerve-rattling midnight 12-hour race.

With up to 8 riders per team, the pedalling workoad is nicely spread, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the on-site facilities including camping with showers, toilets, water, trade stands, bike shops, bike wash, massage, entertainment and mechanic support.

Summer Moon Festival

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

It's festival time of year, and we'll be heading off to the brilliant Summer Moon Festival in Kingskerswell once again this year.

The organisers describe Summer Moon as a "Great Little Festival" - and we tend to agree!  This community-led event has been going since 2008, and has so far raised over £115,000 for local charities and good causes.

The festival fun takes place on Kingskerswell Parish Meadow, in the heart of this lovely Devon village.  First and foremost you'll find a great line-up of 70 South West beers, ciders and wines - including our very own Jail Ale, Dartmoor IPA and...
