About the Pub

This is a large pub situated in the Elburton area on the outskirts of Plymouth. The Kings Head bar is the original building of what is now known as The Ships Tavern and was built sometime in the late 17th century. The building is an original Devon longhouse that was initially used as a farm, later being utilized as a scrumpy house with it’s own cider press. The Carvery is available from 1200–1500 (1900 on Sunday) and evening meals from 1700–2100 Monday to Friday, 2000 Saturdays. The guest beer is usually sourced locally, such as a beer from Summerskills.
