Devon Pubs


Google maps Devon pub guide Devon is justifiably well known for its pubs. Pubs going back to the 16th century or earlier are quite common. And many of them are in stunning locations. Many offer local beers from one of the many West Country micro-breweries that have sprung up over the last twenty years. And increasingly they are focusing on locally produced food: fish, organic meet and local vegetables.
Of course many of them rely on the annual influx of tourists and this can be a problem for some. We know of one pub in nearby Ashprington where the atmosphere has been killed stone dead by turning over every table in the pub to fancy, table-clothed dining. The handful of locals who still venture inside are confined to a narrow strip of bar just a few feet long. Here, in no particular order are a few of the very best Devon hostelries. Or click here to load our custom Google map of the best pubs. We’ll be adding some more as time goes on.

Pigs Nose
http://www.pigsnose.co.uk/
This pub is over 500 years old and is one of the best in Devon. It’s just a short walk from some of the loveliest and most remote beaches. Address: East Prawle, South Hams, Devon, TQ7 2BY, 01548 511 209

Waterman’s Arms http://www.thewatermansarms.net/
The interior of this pub doesn’t quite match its stellar location. But there are few nicer places to sit on a sunny afternoon that it’s beer garden overlooking the river.
Bow Bridge, Cornworthy, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 7EG, 01803 732 214

The Maltsters Arms http://www.tuckenhay.com/
Another great location next to a Creek just off the river Dart. This pub was once owned and run by TV chef Keith Floyd. It got a bit run down at one stage but has been going from strength to strength since energetic new owners took over a couple of years ago.
Tuckenhay TQ9 7EQ, England 01803 732350

Ferry Boat Inn http://ferryboatinndittisham.co.uk/home.html
It would be hard to find a more picturesque location for a pub than this spot next to where a small ferry boat operates to take visitors across the river. You’ll also find excellent pub grub, local ales and a warm welcome. Don't miss the eccentric pub quiz on Thursday evenings where on the whim of the quiz masters some answers carry minus points!
Manor St, Dittisham, Dartmouth, Devon, TQ6 0EX, 01803 722 368

The Cott Inn http://www.cottinn.co.uk/
This claims to be one of the oldest thatched inns in the UK and has been an inn since 1320. Plenty of old beams add to the atmosphere and there’s a beer garden ideal for summer evenings.
Cott Lane, Dartington, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 6HE, 01803 863777

The Church House Inn http://www.churchhouseinndartmoor.co.uk/
This gem of a pub is in one of Dartmoor’s prettiest villages. It dates back to a mere 1329 and is located on the south-eastern slopes of Dartmoor in a hamlet that dates back to the 11th Century. Very friendly staff, real ales and excellent food too.
Holne, Ashburton, Devon, TQ13 7SJ 01364 631208

The Bay Horse http://www.bayhorsetotnes.com/
Friendly local pub in the centre of Totnes. Known for its local real ales, a friendly welcome and regular live music every Sunday night.
8 Cistern Street,Totnes Devon, TQ9 5SP, 01803 862088

The Rugglestone Inn http://www.rugglestoneinn.co.uk/
This is a beautiful unspoilt pub in a great location. However in some ways it's a victim of its success as on a sunny summer Sunday it will be very crowded and you can expect long queues and waits for food.
Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Newton Abbot, Devon, TQ13 7TF, 01364 621327
