Nice little village pub with snug rooms, popular food, quite a choice of drinks and pretty back garden; bedrooms

This charming little pub was originally built to house workers constructing the nearby church. It's much enjoyed by our readers and is run by a friendly, long-serving landlady who offers good, very reasonably priced food and comfortable bedrooms. The heavily beamed public bar on the left has a chatty, easy-going feel, brocade-cushioned wall seats, prints of the village from 1905 onwards, horse tack and a few ship badges and a woodburning stove in a very big stone fireplace; a small door leads to a low-beamed cubbyhole. The snug Drakes Bar has beams hung with tiny cups and big brass keys, a woodburning stove in another stone fireplace, horsebrasses and stirrups, and a mix of seats and tables (note the fine high-backed stripped-pine settle with hood). On the right is a small beamed dining room with settles and tables on flagstones. Darts and board games. Dartmoor Jail Ale, Sharps Doom Bar and Wychwood Dirty Tackle on handpump, ten wines by the glass, a dozen malt whiskies, 15 gins and three farm ciders. There are picnic-sets in the prettily planted and sheltered back garden and the front floral displays are much admired; morris men perform regularly in summer. They also offer an attractive self-catering apartment. Buckland Abbey (National Trust) is close by.
