Enjoy The Experience

Home of the highwayman

The Highwayman Inn is like the Tardis. Step in through the old stage coach and enjoy a very surreal experience!

Quoted as being ‘the most unusual pub in Britain,’ The Highwayman Inn sits surrounded by the luscious and mysterious countryside that is Dartmoor National Park.

An Aladdin’s cave of eclectic artifacts and curios, an interesting and celebrated clientele (including a resident ghost),
combine to make The Highwayman Inn truly something special.

History to the Name

The Highwayman Inn is family run inn and offers a unique drinking and eating experience for
local visitors and those from further afield.

“A mural on the outside of the pub shows customers why the pub has its name. The Highwayman Inn is named after the road bandits often found in England 250 years ago. They would often stop carriages and demand money and jewels were handed over”

Offering Vegan Menus

Many families have members who are pescatarian, vegetarian, vegan and meatarian. Our aim is simply to raise vegan awareness and welcome everyone at the Highwayman no matter what they choose to eat on our menu. Sally is a vegan.
