Description
South Devon CAMRA Pub of the Year 2015 & 2018. We're a family run 17th Century inn in the pretty village of Bridford in the Teign Valley, Dartmoor . The pub was originally a Devon farmhouse and retains all the character charm with exposed beams, stone walls & a large inglenook fire-place with a log burner and original bread oven. We allegedly have the widest bar in the south west and our south facing beer garden looks out over the beautiful Dartmoor countryside - perfect for the summer months. We have a range of local and national cask ales (We're in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide), malt whisky, popular wines and delicious local food served Tuesdays to Sunday lunch in our relaxed & informal bar. Check out our Cider & Scrumpy bar with a selection of 20+ real ciders to try and our extensive collection of 60+ local & unusual Gins. Families, dogs & horses are welcome. See our website for details of our menu, opening times, what's on and how to get in touch with enquiries or bookings.
