The Stannary Arms Stannary Arms, Tavistock, (formally the Tavy Club/RBL Tavistock), has had some building repairs carried out which have now been completed and the pub will be ready to reopen later in the year. The Duke of York, also in Tavistock has a new licensee and has been renamed and rebranded as the Bitter & Twisted, “a craft and food bar”. It is also being painted outside. Horse & Groom, Bittaford, will be reopening in April, but without a marque because of unforeseen prohibitive insurance costs. There will still be some seating outside under cover.
