The Tavistock Inn is brimming with history. Dating back to around 1413, it’s supposedly one of England’s oldest pubs, so has plenty of tales to tell. Back in the day it used to offer welcome respite to travellers trekking across atmospheric Dartmoor. During the English Civil War, some Roundhead Gunners were billeted at the pub, and a few centuries later, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, stayed at the inn while he wrote the famed Hound of the Baskervilles. The pub’s beautiful green surroundings have provided much inspiration for those visiting, and today, it still welcomes guests from near and far into its charming countryside environs.

Sticking to its traditional roots, the menu features classic starters such as beer-battered Brie and soup of the day. Main courses like homemade lasagne, steak and kidney pie, and Yorkshire pud filled with sausages, baked beans and onions will keep hunger at bay. There are basket meals, fish dishes, burgers and veggie options to add to the mix. If calling in during lunch, tuck into filled jacket potatoes and freshly baked baguettes. In summer, soak up the rays in the rear garden, and at the weekend, stop by for a Sunday roast.
