About the Pub

Set in beautiful countryside, this multi-roomed 19th-century (1860) free house is easily accessible from the train station on The Tarka Line connecting Exeter and Barnstaple. Offering locally brewed Devon ales, including our own label, Muddy Duck ale, along with premium Estrella lager, Sandford Cider, bottled Guinness and an eclectic list of 47 wines, plus 20 sold by the glass. We also have our own wine label; red, white and rosé. Add soft drinks and spirits, an interesting selection of local gins, freshly brewed coffee and tea, practically on tap, there's something for everyone.

We have a different menu for lunch and dinner, but always fish, steak, salad and a vegetarian option. Our signature dish is Creedy Carver Confit Duck Leg Cassoulet. Puddings are utterly tempting with Sticky Toffee Pudding, Black Forest Brownie, or the cheese board. There's a children's menu and bar and kitchen nibbles are available throughout the day. Just let our staff know if there are any special dietary needs.

Since COVID 19 and lockdown earlier this year, we have opened our PUB-UP-SHOP selling a huge variety of essentials, including dairy, fruit and veg, meat, bread and cupboard staples. We also offer a variety of pre cooked meals that can be reheated and enjoyed at home. Our village doesn’t have a shop so the PUB-UP-SHOP has been hugely well received with our locals over the past few months.

We have a large beer garden with plenty of social distanced seating. Our garden also benefits from a children’s play area.
