See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Previously sited on the opposite side of the main road, this 1930's community pub features one large bar, and is decorated with historic photos of the area taken from the former Moorhaven Hospital which overlooked the village. The house beer, Horse & Groom Ale, is brewed by Hunters, with the four guest beers regularly coming from Bays, Dartmoor, Exeter, Hunters, Otter, Roam, Skinners, South Hams, St Austell, Summerskills and Teignworthy. Thatcher's dry cider is sold, with Ashridge cider in summer. Beer and cider festivals are held, supporting local charities. Beer tapas are available: three one third pints of beer. Old photos of the nearby Moorhaven Hospital and the now-closed Bittaford Railway Station adorn the walls. A monthly quiz night is held on the first Thursday of the month.

One beer festival is held annually in July, and a cider and sausage festival is held in support of local charities.

CAMRA Member Discount 10p/pint and 5p/half off real ale is available here.
