About the Pub

Victorian pub, built in 1850 on the Exeter to Barnstaple Tarka Line. Popular

with drinkers and diners alike, it is well-frequented by locals, visitors

and their cricket team. Home-cooked food made with locally sourced produce

is served lunchtimes and evenings. Part of the downstairs area, previously

used for storage, has been converted into a second bar to accommodate sports

fans and to serve those in the large, covered area between the pub and the

railway line. The downstairs bar also allows views of the brewery.

The pub brews its own ales and five are usually available, including two

regulars and three seasonal ales which, like the village pictures and old

pub signs, reflect a railway theme.

Regular cask ales

This pub serves 2 regular beers.
