See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Drewe Arms is a heritage pub located just within Dartmoor National Park. It is situated in front of the Parish Church in a picturesque village square. This thatched roof 17th-century inn has remained unchanged for over 100 years (see website for history). Nothing fancy, just an unmistakeably English drinking place with a historic interior and rustic charm. The pub is most famous for Aunt Mabel who held the record for being the longest serving landlady who ran the pub for 75 years before retiring at the age of 99. Real ales are served straight from the cask from cellar to hatch. There are three individual rooms, and it's full of nooks and crannies. Delicious homemade food, using locally sourced West Country produce, is served. There is a splendid garden to enjoy, and accommodation is available. This pub is well worth a visit.
