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

Nestling on the edge of Dartmoor this 16th Century pub is named after a local folklore figure and should be on everybody's bucket list. The bar walls are decorated with CAMRA certificates and other accolades that have been won over the years. There is an open fire lit in the winter months and the bar has a unique thatched roof. At the rear there is a separate restaurant and access to the garden. Eight handpumps offer four Ales in winter, mainly from the west country and there will always be a dark beer available. If they run out of handpumps in summer, additional beers are served directly from the cellar. Four Real ciders and eight sparkling / fruit ciders all from West country producers are sold. The owner is an ex-butcher, his wife a cook, the food is excellent and if you really want to make the most of the place there are six en-suite guest rooms.
