Dartmoor Brewery Sportive 2019

Posted by Mike Coombes in Sep 2019

 

There's a whole lot of adrenalin coming to Dartmoor on two wheels, with the Dartmoor Brewery Sportive cycle race on Saturday 7th September 2019.

Supported by Dartmoor Brewery, this gruelling cycle event offers competitors a choice of two scenic and challenging routes - a 25 mile "Half Pint" and, not the for the faint hearted, the 52 mile "Full Pint".

The race starts from Dartmoor Brewery's Princetown HQ at 9:30am, and the finish line is at the Prince of Wales pub in Princetown, where competitors will receive a well-deserved bottle of Jail Ale to take away and enjoy later. 

With over 120 enthusiastic competitors...

Pub of the Week: The Coach and Horses

Posted by Mike Coombes in Aug 2019

When we're out and about, spreading the Dartmoor Brewery word, it’s always reassuring to know that there’s a roadside pub where we can take a break and enjoy some traditional Devon hospitality (and, if someone else is driving, a good pint of Jail Ale!). The Coach and Horses at Horns Cross is one of our North Devon favourites.

You’ll find the Coach and Horses, a 17th century roadside inn, on the A39 between Clovelly and Bideford, a stone’s throw from the beautiful and secluded Peppercombe beach overlooking Barnstaple Bay.

Your host, the welcoming and very popular Tina, keeps a full range of Dartmoor...
