Cocktail Masterclasses at £20 per person


We have a hand curated list of amazing cocktails and mixed drinks. It includes everything from the real classics to some great innovations by our expert mixologists. We’re not big on premixed ingredients, so all our sugar syrup and sour mix is made on site, and our espresso comes from amazing local sources.

We’re committed to our social responsibility as a company, that’s why we strive to make sure as many of our ingredients as possible are responsibly sourced and as local or as authentic as possible.

We’re not just about the cocktails. We have a wide range of draught products designed to give you the best selection possible, we stock 10 draught lines that are ever changing, and at least 4 of these lines are always made within 70 miles of the pub.

We have a great selection of Devon and Cornish rum and gin, alongside products from further afield to ensure there is always something that tickles your fancy. Just ask our staff for a recommendation.



We’re committed to being completely sustainable by 2021

We’re committed to stopping our use of single use plastics by the end of 2019.

All our straws are biodegradable, while still being plastic to ensure you don’t have to use soggy paper straws.

Any plastic or paper cups we use are all biodegradable.


We strive to use the most sustainable breweries and distilleries to provide our customers with the most responsible products we can.

Tiger is brewed by an entirely solar powered brewery. Budweiser is brewed in a 100% solar powered brewery. Absolut is all made from one source, one community and one village, supplying jobs and livelihood to the community.


Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. When we’re not reusing our bottles for our homemade syrups, we’re recycling them.

We use Devon Contract Waste, so none of our waste goes to landfill.
