The Old Inn


0.5 miles
Kilmington, Axminster, EX13 7RB

An historic thatched pub, The Old Inn sits proudly at the heart of the village of Kilmington, just outside Axminster on the eastern border of Devon. This charming, family-run inn has been welcoming guests since the 17th century, offering good, honest pub fare and a selection of high-quality local beer, cider, and fine wine. Inside, a gently crackling log fire creates a cosy retreat during the winter months and the exposed beams and flagstone flooring offer a traditional country-pub feel.

As a family-friendly venue, The Old Inn welcomes guests of all ages and the outdoor seating area is the perfect place to enjoy a few drinks while the kids run around.

Upon arrival, you can expect to be greeted by a warm and amiable team of staff who strive to make your visit as enjoyable and memorable as possible. After taking a seat at the bar or in the restaurant – or maybe you’ll opt for a comfy leather armchair in the lounge – you can begin to peruse the menus. The fare focuses on hearty British flavours, and as well as the regular and impressively varied selection, you’ll always find a new range of daily specials to choose from.

If you’re stopping by for lunch, you can expect to find a tempting array of light bites: the homemade baguettes contain tasty fillings such as succulent roast beef and tangy Cheddar cheese, while jacket potatoes come with a range of toppings. For many, the ploughman’s is the favourite lunchtime choice; it’s served with crusty bread, pickles, salad and your choice of ham, beef, cheese or smooth chicken liver pâté.

For those visiting on a Sunday, the offering extends to include a sumptuous roast lunch with all the trimmings. On the evening menu, you’ll find some of the pub’s famous specialities, including the creamy Old Inn fish pie – made with Exmouth mussels – and slow-roasted pork belly served on a bed of bubble and squeak. Other options range from bangers and mash to gammon steak with fresh pineapple and chunky chips. If you prefer something lighter there’s also a range of refreshing salads available.
