Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Old Town Hall, Ilsington, TQ13 9RG
Set in the village of Ilsington on picturesque Dartmoor, The Carpenters Arms is a traditional village pub full of local characters and friendly staff members that eagerly welcome visitors. Surrounded by thatched cottages and enveloped in the Devon landscape, this thoroughly British bar and eatery welcomes muddy boots and dogs alike. Why not stop by and warm yourself by the roaring log fires, or simply enjoy a pint of something refreshing? The Carpenters Arms has recently come under new management and the genuine warmth of owners Richard and Yvonne keeps guests coming back time and again. The kitchen team serves up traditional pub food, with mains ranging from crispy fish and chips and delicious platters to satisfying pasties and juicy burgers made with Dartmoor beef. For vegetarians there’s a tasty veggie burger layered with goat’s cheese and tangy onion chutney and on Sundays, diners are treated to a sumptuous Sunday roast with all the trimmings. The bar has a great selection of drinks to accompany your meal. Choose from fine wine and ale straight from the barrel as well as a selection of gin and local beer. If you fancy an evening out, you could even stop by for one of the live music or quiz nights, or perhaps you’ll attend one of the lively karaoke sessions.
