Posted by Mike C in Jul 2017

There'll be Jail Ale and Three Hares on tap from Dartmoor Brewery, plus some great local ciders, a hog roast and barbecue.  Live music, and the inevitable bouncy castle, complete the line-up for what should be a great weekend!

The historic Churston Manor hotel, restaurant and bar can be found on the outskirts of the pretty South Devon village of Churston Ferrers (between Brixham and Paignton).  There's a lovely stretch of the South West Coast Path which passes nearby, making the Churston Manor...

The 6th annual Firkin Challenge took place on Sunday 4th June, and saw slightly bonkers teams of two lugging an empty Dartmoor Brewery firkin (an awkwardly-shaped and distinctly heavy 9-gallon cask) aroud a 4 mile course starting and finishing at the Royal Oak Inn in Meavy, and taking in the normally relaxing beauty-spots of Burrator Reservoir and Sheepstor.

Winners of the 2017 Firkin Challenge were Simon Francis and Ben Adelsbury, completing the amazing feat in just over 42 minutes.  They were closely followed by...

The Rugglestone is Pub of the Year

Posted by Mike C in May 2017

The Rugglestone Inn, in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, has been named as Pub of the Year by the South Devon Campaign for Real Ale. The Rugglestone is a stunning inn, in a stunning location, in the picture-postcard Dartmoor village of Widecombe in the Moor.
