Home of the Highwayman

One of the many intriguing external features of The Highwayman

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.

Your hosts – Sally and Bruce

 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.

Open Mic Music Nights are held regularly as are Poetry Evenings and other random theme nights. We cater for and encourage artists of all kinds. Please see our Events Section.

We are sympathetic to a wide range of belief systems and can cater for Pagan, Humanist and other alternative flavours of ceremonies.

Lunchtime food and drink includes organic, vegan and vegetarian options and ranges from a wide range of Oggies (Pasties) to beef, cheese, ham, salmon or other platters, soup or pies.

Evening meals are available, but there are special dishes usually reserved for our resident guests and can include Lobster Thermidor, Seabass, Scallops, Steaks and other options for those with ‘unusual’ requirements.

Visitors to The Highwayman Inn are left with a sense of inner calm and a strong yearning to return as soon as possible.
“Words cannot do justice. You simply have to visit.”

Events Throughout the year we look at celebrating unusual, natural, traditional and historical events in a variety of ways, ranging from plays and music to poetry and other arts and crafts. Often these events involve previous visitors who return to take part or guests and friends.
