Pub of the Week: The Horse

Posted by Mike C in Jul 2022

We're right in the heart of Dartmoor for a spotlight on our latest Pub of the Week - The Horse, in the bustling and picturesque moorland town of Moretonhampstead.  

You'll find The Horse right in the centre of town, and it makes a perfect refuelling stop on a day out on the moors, with high moorland, rugged tors and the stunning Teign Valley all close by. 

The Horse has a real sense of style to it - full of contemporary design touches, yet still showing off the historic features of this lovely old building.  A rustic bar, squashy leather sofas, it's chilly, and a light-flooded courtyard restaurant, all add to the appeal of the place.

For a true taste of Dartmoor, you'll find an excellent pint of our Legend on the bar.

Whilst The Horse is definitely the kind of pub where you can happily just pop in for a pint, you'd be missing out if you didn't have a bite to eat from the imaginative menu of informal (but top-notch) dining options.  Mention The Horse to anyone locally, and they'll probably rave about the excellent hand-made pizzas.  If you like something spicy, the Vesuvio pizza is one to try, topped with nduja sausage, chorizo, fresh onions, confit potatoes, buffalo mozzarella and oregano, and finished with parmesan shavings and fresh rocket. As well as the pizzas, there's plenty more on offer too, with Dartmoor beef and lamb, and Westcountry fish and seafood featuring prominently.  

Get out and enjoy Dartmoor this Summer - and try out The Horse for yourself. You'll be glad you did!
