White Thorn InnShaugh Prior
This is very much a community village pub, situated 1 mile from the Plym Valley Foot and Cycle Path. The pub has recently (23 Sept 2017) been reopened by local musician, Michael Mathieson, better known as Mad Dog McRea, after extensive refurbishment inside and out. It offers two regular beers from Devon and Cornwall, and two regional guest beers, in a large open-plan bar with a central fireplace. Regular entertainment is on offer, including a monthly Folk music night (Wednesday), regular live weekend music (most Saturdays), a quiz night on the last Thursday each month and other local events. There is a large car park and children's play area at the rear which overlooks Bickleigh Vale (which is currently closed until the refurbishments are completed (October 2017). Dogs and horses are also welcome.
Please note that a Sunday Carvery is also planned for the future (October 2017).
