Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We visited twice during our visit to Newton Abbot as we are huge cider fans. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and guided us through the impressive variety of available ciders. We sampled a number of different ciders and they were all excellent. We sat outside in the back garden and it was very pleasant and relaxed. We would definitely return.

    Went here for a few drinks before going on a stag do. Bar staff were really welcoming and worked hard to ensure the place was tidy. I thought it might have been a locals only kind of place but the punters were chatty and easy going.

    Prices are reasonable as well with a decent selection of beers/real ales.

    A beautiful old pub with a traditional menu typical of many pubs in the area but the difference is the food here is done exceptionally well! We had a perfect lunch; a simple home made vegetable soup and a smoked salmon and prawn starter;. Simple food but great quality salmon and prawns. My husband said the steak and kidney pudding is the best he has had, ever! The chef clearly is great at pastry, my goats cheese tart was encased in rich , crumbly, melt in the mouth pastry . Service from the two young ladies was extremely friendly and very efficient . We will definitely be back for more !

    This wonderful place is part of a huge stone building that formerly was a Maltings where beer festivals and the like took place.

    I thought it had all closed but on moving back to Newton Abbot once more I found this amazing bar.

    It has a huge array of craft beers, bitters, real ales, ciders and stouts plus more.

    It’s filled with bottled beers on shelves so you can browse what’s there and either take it home or drink it in.

    Essentially it’s like a shop and a lovely pub.

    The prices are reasonable (I pay £3.50 for a great lager) and goes up to £14 a pint for some 15% stout. Probably not for the faint hearted.

    You can buy in 1/3 and 1/2 pints too and having samples appears no problem.

    For drivers and non-drinkers there is a range of products too.

    It is limited opening at the moment, from Thursday to Saturday I believe. If it’s open there’s a sign on the pavement.

    Great clientele and is a whole mix. Nothing too crowded or noisy.

    When I went it was a bit chilly inside but not uncomfortable.

    Friendly knowledgeable staff. Some limited snacks which suffice.

    There is an outside area that backs onto the railway line. They occasionally have pizza nights I think.

    Really lovely place and well worth a visit.

    I have called in here a few times when visiting Newton Abbot and have always had a friendly welcome and good service. I enjoy a pint of real cider from the box and the cider here is excellent. The beer garden is also a nice secluded spot to relax with a pint.
    PS - jorrocks has it spot on!

    Myself and my wife popped into this pub on the off chance and was pleasantly surprised by the different age gap between the customers and the Jolly atmosphere that was in there, we were let down by a taxi driver but the staff were very helpful to find another one quickly, brilliant beer and company, shall definitely be visiting again.

    We had booked the race simulator at 5.30 and were told they were running half an hour late. They weren’t offering any food so had to go elsewhere whilst we waited for them to catch up. Would have been nice to be offered a free drink as a good will gesture, considering by the time we could use the simulators, it was 45 minutes late - Partly due to them having a catch up with their friends who were on before us - which we had to interrupt to get started.
    Whilst on the simulator we were sat waiting at times to start the next parts of the races as the hosts were not attentive (bare in mind there were no other customers).
    There was no atmosphere and the experience on a whole was a total rip off considering it cost £30.
    Very disappointed and wished we asked for a refund rather than waiting.
