Attraction details
Owner description: Under New Management since November 2013! A quintessential 17th Century Inn, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, at the bottom of a steep valley next to Bow Creek and bridge. The Inn has been used as a smithy, a brew house, petrol station, a prison and a haunt for the feared press gangs. The area was recorded in the doomsday book. Built in the 17th-century, Waterman's Arms overlooks tinkling Bow Creek, near Tuckenhay. We have fifteen beautiful, well appointed en-suite rooms with large bathrooms and powerful showers in the Annexe and spacious powerful shower rooms in the Inn. Direct dial telephones and free Wi-Fi equipped throughout. With riverside sitting across from the Inn, The Waterman's is the ideal place for a relaxing drink or a delicious meal by the river. We also have newly refurbished sitting to the side of the Inn on the patio. We have two separate dining rooms, on three different levels, seating no more than 35 people in each, they have been recently updated and are now bright, airy and as modern as a 17th century inn can be!

Excellent Food and Service... and a card table downstairs next to its own bar - perfect

The pub is in a great setting by the hump backed bridge but the food was just awful. The chesse board was lovely and whilst the staff are friendly enough, the lack of quality shows through

Nice locals' pub but welcoming to strangers. The landlord takes a genuine interst in new faces who turn up. Open fire and comfortable, traditional seating. Landlord even asked me if I was on the run!

Fantastic location, especially in the summer. Nice beer garden across the road from the pub and access to the creek stream for kids and dogs.
Good selection of beers and wine. Food is good but you pay extra for the surroundings without getting top quality cuisine.
