Often drive past this establishment and my husband and i have never been in, so eventually decided to pop by. On enterting the place, it's just mystifing, there are items everywhere, no nook and cranny escapes! I had a touch of one of the crystals on the tree by the bar, and made my wish, lets hope it comes true!... More

Recently a group of us stayed at The Highwayman Inn for a Birthday. The pub itself is just something else, there is stuff to look at everywhere, it has a room that is designed to look like the inside of a ship, a cosy cave, cute couple seating and the entrance is the inside of a horse-drawn coach. We had... More

Thank you for positive feedback. I think you have nailed it on the head that the inn is for those who like something different and away from the norm. We are so lucky here because our customers are very interesting too, in fact scratch the surface of people and you get a nice surprise. Hope to see you again and... More

We found this place by accident whilst looking for somewhere to eat during a detour through Dartmoor, and were delighted we did! The Inn is beautiful and fascinating both inside and out, and a huge amount of work must have gone into it, yet it still retains that wonderful feeling you get in such an old, old building. Lots of... More

Thank you for visiting our inn and your comments. It is very important to us that you have a positive experience. The pies you had are made by an ambitious local lad who wants to make the pie as famous as the pasty and takes his work very very seriously. Bruce and I just want you to have a good... More

We called in here for lunch yesterday with my sister and her husband. I have been past here probably over 100 times, and always meant to take a look, but wish I had done so sooner. My wife and I, along with my Sister and her husband went for lunch here yesterday. We were just completely and utterly blown away... More

We saw this place by accident when looking for a place to eat something during a bike tour in Dartmoor park. The exterior was very intriguing (the windows and doors were very little and seemed unreal) so we decided to go in. When we got inside we had a big surprise. I didn't even believed that a place like that... More

Glad you like the inn my lovelies. With regard to our romantic four poster bedrooms they are oldie worldy some with slipper baths etc. The prints in my Art Deco 'contemporary loo' are prints from the artist and Art Deco pioneer Erté, originally a Russian aristocrat Romain Tirtoff, who moved to Paris as a young man in the 1920s and...

Most unusual place I visited in my life. Needs to be seen to understand, amazing décor worth exploring, definitely check around all the parts of the building as they all are fascinating. Haven't stayed but was shown one of the rooms and it looked stunning.

One of the craziest places i've ever been. If you think the outside is special, try going in for a drink. You'll be surprized. A must see for everyone who loves "something different".And as in any good old english tradition, of course it's haunted.

We stumbled upon this place by sheer accident while on holiday, as usual we got lost on our way back to our campsite. At first we drove passed it but had to do a u turn to take a second look. We were stunned by the whole exteria so just had to go inside for a look. The landlady, Sally... More

Thank you for your kind and appreciative feed back. Glad you enjoyed the inn. I know it looks like I am very benevolent with my charity work at the moment but I haven't really done anything substantial for a couple of years. It is so rewarding when one does.

My friends and I went on a roadtrip and needed to go to Plymouth. We saw a sign for the most unusual pub in Britain so we followed the signs and ended up at the Highwayman Inn.
