Pub of the Week: The Horse

Posted by Mike C in Jul 2018

We're back 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, a roaring fire when it's...

Pub of the Week: The Fortescue Arms

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

Perfectly situated between coast and country, meet our Pub of the Week, the Fortescue Arms.

This very picture-postcard country pub can be found in the heart of the charming Devon village of East Allington.  It’s a little off the beaten track (and all the better for it!), but very easy to get to, situated between the bustling market town of Totnes, and some of South Devon’s coastal beauty spots including Salcombe, Start Point and Slapton.

This traditional Devon hostelry dates back to the 19th century, and bears the name of the local landowner.  As you step through the front door, you’ll find all...

Pub of the Week: The Avon Inn

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

You’ll find the Avon Inn in the tiny Devon village of Avonwick, where the rugged scenery of Dartmoor gives way to the soft but stunning landscapes of the South Hams.  A traditional country pub, but not too far off the beaten track.

It’s a lovely pub, whatever the time of year.  A wood-burning stove for fireside chats in the winter, and a big garden for al-fresco lunching in the summer.

Just behind the pub flows the River Avon, as it makes its journey from the Avon reservoir on Dartmoor, to the South Devon seaside at Bigbury on Sea.

You’ll find our Jail Ale...

Pub of the Week: The Odd Wheel

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

The village of Wembury, just east of Plymouth, is well known for its scenic countryside, coastal walks, rock-pooling beach – and proper village pub.  And so we introduce the Odd Wheel, our Pub of the Week.

The Odd Wheel, Wembury, was transformed with a complete refurbishment prior to opening under the current management in 2010.  The result is a pub which still has all the charm and character of a cozy country inn, but with a contemporary and welcoming décor.

It’s a friendly place, popular with locals but also very welcoming to visitors (of which there are many, particularly in the warmer months...

Pub of the Week: The Fisherman's Arms

Posted by Mike C in Jun 2018

If you know Plymouth, you'll know the historic Barbican waterfront area with its cobbled streets, ancient buildings and bustling maritime scene.  But you might have missed a gem of a pub on the Barbican - the Fisherman's Arms, which is tucked away just off the main street.

The Fisherman's Arms is popular with visitors for sure, but also has a loyal local following, thanks to its traditionally warm welcome, good local beers (including Dartmoor Brewery's finest) and country-pub-in-the-heart-of-town feel.

In the winter there's an open fire, but any time of year the pub oozes character with cosy tables, candlelight and comfy seating. ...
