Thank you Iron Man. We always enjoy seeing you since that first misty night when you all wandered in from the moors. The pub is interestingI agree but it is special because of the people who come in, like yousrlves, and support it. Looking forward to the next time. More

We made a detour to this pub one evening after dropping the children at a sleepover in Tavistock. I'd heard about this pub and passed this pub but had never been inside. Its a pub like no other. like stepping back in time. Amazing artefacts and mysterious items in every single nook and cranny. The landlady and landlord were very... More

I used to work in Okehampton and so used to pass this pub every day on my commute and wonder what it was like inside... Well this weekend I found out! It's definitely a deserving holder of the most unusual pub in England award - and I don't think they need to worry about losing their crown any time soon!... More

Thank you for your comments and I have taken on board your comment about the drink prices . Your observations are astute as yes we get lots of people who just want to look. The thing is for us is our overheads are massive. All repairs etc have to be bespoke. Recent fire regulations we have had to adhere to... More

I've been visiting this unusual pub for over 30 years I guess. In that time I must have taken a couple of hundred friends and relations from a few nationalities too. Without exception, everyone found the place to be inimitable and mind-boggling. Sally and Bruce have done a great job following on from Buster and Rita. When I lived down... More

This place is amazing, we arrived early for lunch on a grim day but it added to the atmosphere – and there is plenty of that. It also meant that we could have a wander through the other bars while it was quiet and check out the nooks and crannies stuffed full of bizarre and random objects. I’ve been to... More

We arrived on a wet Easter weekend, feeling a bit sorry for ourselves. The welcome we received from Sally put a big smile on our faces. The pub itself, is unique in our experience, and definitely worth a visit. As others have said, this is one of the most interesting pubs you could ever visit. We only had time to... More

Thank you for your kind comments. It means a lot to us, our inn and the area when you leave us with a good impression. Without appreciative people like yourselves we would not survive in the hospitality industry. Hope to see you again. Sally More

Fantastic, magical, mythical, enchanting, there are not enough words to describe this place. Its like walking onto the set of a movie, its like a Hobbit house, an Alladins cave and something from the Pirates of the Carribean, all rolled into one. Totally blew my mind, love it and wish it was my local.
