Pub of the Week: The Hoops Inn

Posted by Mike C in Nov 2018

We're off to North Devon for our latest Pub of the Week - the perfectly picturesque Hoops Inn at Horns Cross.

You'll find the Hoops Inn between Bideford and the stunning North Devon coastal village of Clovelly, making it a great watering hole if you're enjoying some time out in this lovely part of Devon. Better still, the Hoops Inn has 13 comfortable rooms if you're looking for somewhere to rest your head for the night.

This lovely country pub oozes character and tradition, with its thatched roof. beamed ceilings and characterful bar. You'll find our Dartmoor Best and Jail Ale on the bar, and there's a great wine list to complement your meal.

The Hoops Inn has gained a first-class reputation locally for using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, and the candlelit restaurant sets the scene for delicious dining.  There are some hearty choices on the menu, including beer-battered cod and chips, 28-day aged steak and a rich smoked haddock and salmon fish pie. 

Whether you're staying the night, or just visiting for the day, there's plenty to do in the local area. The village of Clovelly, famous for its steep cobbled main street leading to the sea, is definitely worth a visit, and for garden fans there's the spectacular RHS Rosemoor close by in Great Torrington.
