Good Hotel Guide Review
Possibly the oldest inn in England, with a medieval wooden window pre-dating glass, this thatched village pub in the Teign valley is ‘a gem’. A traditional Devon longhouse, it was a nunnery, property of Buckfast Abbey, when it was listed in the Domesday Book. Today, reached via a single-track road across a brook, the dog-friendly pub is owned by Paul and Ness Moir, and wins praise for the warm welcome and attentive staff. Among the four inn rooms, Teign has a pretty iron bedstead, a leaded glass casement window. The restaurant’s ‘delicious’ locally sourced food includes Brixham fish pie, tenderstem broccoli; a Sunday roast (booking essential). A suntrap terrace has outside tables and seating for alfresco meals. All served with rural peace, just a short drive from Exeter.
