AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year

Originally a cottage, this unaltered Grade II listed building was converted to an inn around 1832. Set in the picturesque village of Widecombe in the Moor, the pub is surrounded by tranquil moorland and streams; the Rugglestone stream rises behind the pub, and Widecombe’s famous church acts as a beacon for ramblers and riders seeking out the inn’s rural location. Cosy little rooms and comforting wood-burners encourage appreciative visitors and locals alike to tarry awhile and sup ales such as Dartmoor Legend; farmhouse ciders such as Ashridge are stillaged behind the snug bar and tapped straight from the barrel. The filling fare is a decent mix of classic pub staples and savoury dishes, keeping the cold away in winter or fulfilling a summer evening’s promise in the streamside garden. The Rugglestone platter of ham, cheddar and Stilton served with salad, pickles, home-made coleslaw and crusty bread is a great Dartmoor experience.
