About the Pub

Formerly the Commercial Inn and hidden away at the bottom of town, this historic, characterful and cosy back-street pub is situated in a conservation area beside a small river. The front door is barrel-shaped and leads into a traditional old low-beamed bar, heated in winter by a huge wood-burning stove in the original granite fireplace. The L-shaped bar, its frontage decorated with wooden barrels, faces the door; to the left is the drinking space, comfortably upholstered with benches and stools around wooden tables, while to the right is the games area dominated by pool and darts. The single changing beer is likely to be Dartmoor Jail Ale or similar. Dogs are allowed inside (but owners clean up the mess, according to a sign); there is a sheltered but simple beer garden and outside smoking area at the rear of the pub. Parking is very limited.
