Welcoming drinkers for more than 500 years, this pretty free house is just a few minutes’ drive from the Exeter junction of the M5. Originally a cider house, its vintage can be identified from the thatched roof, thick stone and cob walls, heavy beams and log fire. These days, real cider is still well represented by Westons and Symonds. Real ales feature Otter Ale from Devon with guest appearances of other West Country brews such as Exeter Avocet. Wine fans will appreciate the list created by the independent wine merchant, Tanners of Shrewsbury. The menus make the best of seasonal produce with English and West Country organic produce used wherever possible. Menus feature fish landed at Brixham and Looe, West Country beef hung for 21 days and pork from a farm just up the road. The May beer and cider festival is worth a visit.
