The Great British Beer Garden: The Offshore Bar

Posted by Mike Coombes in Jul 2020

Continuing our series on the Great British Beer Garden - the kind of place where you can enjoy great beer, fine food and good cheer in fresh air and nice surroundings - we bring you the Offshore Bar in the English Riviera town of Torquay.

Not all beer gardens are gardens! The Offshore Bar boasts a perfect position in the heart of Torquay, right next to the bustling harbour, with a laid back alfresco terrace right on the harbour wall. Sit in the sun and enjoy a Jail Ale and a bite to eat, and watch the world go by - on...

The Great British Beer Garden: The Greyhound Country Inn

Posted by Mike Coombes in Jul 2020

Brilliant pubs across the land have been busy sprucing up their gardens for summer drinking in the fresh air, and we salute them all! In the first of our series of features showcasing the Great British Beer Garden, we're pleased to introduce the Greyhound Country Inn.

The Greyhound, a traditional thatched inn, can be found at Fenny Bridges on the outskirts of Honiton (and conveniently close to the A30 trunk road).  We know from personal eperience that the Greyhound serves an exceptional pint of our Jail Ale - always spot-on, and a credit to their excellent inn-keeping.

Things will be...

Among the Best in the West

Posted by Mike Coombes in Jul 2020

Four of our traditional Dartmoor ales have each been honoured with a Silver award from Taste of the West.

Our original and famous Jail Ale, our deliciously hoppy IPA, our smooth and golden Legend and our Winter warmer, Dragon's Breath, were each sampled by the expert judges from Taste of the West, and were considered to be amongst the best in the west.

With top-notch ingredients and traditional flavour at the heart of each of our live, natural beers, we're thrilled to have been once again recognised by the judges.

Taste of the West is the region's largest independent food organisation, with a mission...

Brewing through it all

Posted by Mike Coombes in Jun 2020

Ian Cobham, Managing Director and Head Brewer at Dartmoor Brewery, gives us an insight into how England’s highest brewery has kept on brewing during the pandemic, and how it’s preparing to support the pubs when they can safely reopen.

It would be an exercise in stating the obvious to say that the last few months have been challenging for Dartmoor Brewery, as they have for everyone, but there, I’ve said it!  In the blink of an eye, our loyal trade customers found themselves in business lockdown at the end of March, and orders for our cask beers stopped dead, of course.
