Ever-popular brewpub

Bar menu
Microbrewed ales

Dog friendly
Free Wi-Fi

Just a stone’s throw from Exeter in the picturesque village of Newton St Cyres, Devon’s oldest brewpub can be found in a 19th-century coaching inn. The cosy bar is a welcoming place for drinkers, diners and dogs alike, with five home-brewed ales on the hand pumps. Classic pub dishes are available every day with a wide selection to suit all tastes and appetites. Pick from the likes of home-made Scotch eggs, steak and ale pie, and beer-battered fish and chips, or look to the seasonally-changing specials board. Desserts might include stem ginger and treacle tart, sticky toffee pudding and chocolate brownie. Booking is recommended.
