Pub of the Week: The Oxenham Arms

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in Aug 2018

You'll find the Oxenham Arms Hotel and Restaurant in South Zeal, a beautiful, unspoilt village on the Northern edge of Dartmoor National Park, and as one of Devon's oldest inns, it's definitely worth a visit.

There are plenty of historic inns on Dartmoor, but the Oxenham Arms has the dual distinction of being a former medieval monastery, and the oldest CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) heritage inn in Devon.  Even before you step inside, you'll sense the history of this 12th Century buidling, originally built by Benedictine monks. Uniquely there is a 5000-year old standing stone in the centre of the hotel,...

Pub of the Week - on tour!

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in Aug 2018

We're out and about on the Isle of Wight this week, spreading the Dartmoor Brewery word to the thirsty sailing competitors and spectators at Cowes Week. We thought it only right that the Isle of Wight should be represented in our Pub of the Week slot - and in a break with our tradition we're featuring not just one, but two Pubs of the Week on the island!

Our first stop is the Duke of York in Cowes, where our Jail Ale has been enjoying a prime slot on the Pop-Up Bar throughout Cowes Week.  The Duke of York is a Cowes...

Pub of the Week: The Forest Inn

Posted by Mike Coombes Dartmoor Brewery in Aug 2018

If you've got in mind a country pub in the middle of Dartmoor with glorious countrside in every direction, great beers on the bar, and a warm Devon welcome, you'll love our Pub of the Week - the Forest Inn, Hexworthy.

The Forest Inn enjoys an exceptional location, perched on a Dartmoor hillside close to the pretty hamlet of Hexworthy. The West Dart river is just down the lane from the pub, and the grassy riverbank at nearby Huccaby Bridge is an ideal spot at which to spend a lazy summer's afternoon (and enjoy a paddle in the clear, cool Dartmoor waters).
