A 16th century Devonshire pub with thirteen bedrooms, situated in the historic and picturesque Dartmoor village of Lydford.

With low ceilings, wonky walls, open fires and character in abundance.  We are situated in the Dartmoor National Park just off the A30 between the market towns of Okehampton and Tavistock (both 10 minutes away) in the quiet, charming village of Lydford, just 200m from the entrance to the majestic National Trust site of Lydford Gorge. We are surrounded by invigorating walks, horse trails and national cycle routes, with cosy corners and roaring fires in the winter months and large beautiful gardens to enjoy in the summer, there’s something for everyone year round.

The pub has a main bar, snug, restaurant, heated and lit stretch tent, thirteen bedrooms and large beautiful gardens. Our menu is full of pub and British classics, our food is traditional, homemade and honest and our ingredients sourced from local producers. The bedrooms offer a calm, simple space to unwind and relax.

Most importantly we aim to provide genuine, warm and friendly hospitality to all our guests, so whether you are a local from up the road or a visitor from afar we hope to welcome you time and time again.
