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.

A pint is perfect, but a crafty half is pretty good too!  And so we introduce our Pub of the Week - the rather cleverly named Crafty Half.

You'll find the Crafty Half midway between Plymouth's city centre and the Mutley Plain area of town, perfect for a swift one if you heading into town, or maybe on your way home after a long and thirst-making day.
