Regular beers: Dartmoor Jail Ale, Sharp's Atlantic

Comfortable, friendly and surprisingly spacious 15th-century village pub on three levels, with a quiet front bar with gas fire where conversation dominates, a busy middle bar with large family room hosting the wood burner, dartboard and TV - there are a number of distinct drinking corners. The pool table sits in the old skittle alley deep in the back. The bar itself is constructed of old house bricks and timber beams, with a polished wooden top. The interior similarly makes extensive use of recycled materials and is furnished with wooden tables and settles and other pew-style seating. The pub's history reaches back to the Reformation, when church properties were redistributed and the 'New' age began. Although the pub was not used by local Methodists, they nevertheless used to make weekly visits (with shoebox) to the attached shoemaker's shop, which had a connecting door! The two changing beers reduce to one in winter but are usually from Devon; the cider is often from Shepton Mallet.
