The Old Inn
With spectacular views over Hameldown and chickens roaming in the spacious garden, The Old Inn at Widecombe-in-the-Moor is the epitome of a traditional Dartmoor eatery. Widecombe is a walkers’ hub, and The Old Inn is the perfect place to rest up and enjoy a well-earned pint of ale or cider, a tasty lunch, or a traditional Devon cream tea.
The food is fresh and seasonal, with daily changing specials focusing on hearty local meat dishes; beef is sourced from the Dartmoor Farmers Association, from cattle grazing out on the moor. The burgers on the à la carte menu have gained quite a reputation, and The Old Inn is well known for its delicious fish and chips. Save space for a homemade pudding or pop back after your walk for an evening meal once the midday rush has calmed down.
