Hidden away in the rolling Blackdown Hills, this 17th-Century tavern is an affable family-run pub which oozes traditional charm. The Howley offers the ideal country escape, serving rustic and wholesome food to weary travellers and locals alike. The pub is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and you can enjoy amazing views of the Yarty Valley whilst tucking into a tasty homemade meal.

The Howley Tavern has a stunning exterior and inside the decor attests to the building's grand history; strong, old beams, wooden furniture and ever-so-slightly-askew blackboards add to the warm atmosphere and undying charm. Rows of ale labels adorn the beams in the bar, evidence of this pub's affinity with authentic and local beers.

The Howley Tavern's appetising menu is uncluttered and succinct, sporting a dish to suit all palates whilst not overwhelming you with too much choice. To start, perhaps try the mozzarella, tomato and artichoke crostini. For your main course, there are classics like the Howley burger or homemade lasagne with salad; if you like a surprise, order a more adventurous dish of South African sweet potato and peanut stew, or mushroom and Boursin tagliatelle. The inn also offers succulent grilled meats, hand-cut sandwiches and great-value bar meals, as well as an exclusive Sunday menu which includes excellent quality beef or a guest meat of the week for only £7.95.

To top it off, the staff are friendly and unobtrusive, keen to allow you to settle in and enjoy your meal without being hassled to drink up. Children are also very welcome here, with a kids' menu and large beer garden with a play area to complete the ideal family experience. So if you are passing through the picturesque Blackdown Hills, stop in for a filling meal in relaxed surroundings, with some of the area's most stunning views as a backdrop to the experience.
