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. 

My apologies to everyone who has wanted to visit the Highwayman during this difficult time and has not been able to.   We have been very busy though throughout and the inn has had some care and attention.  Lots of the upholstery has  been redone by Louisa at Taw Valley Upholstery.  Bruce with the help of our friends at Albert Construction  and Darby Decor have done considerable rennovation work inside and out.   Friends from the vilage have helped out, Paul and Ken especially.  We are particularly proud of our new and long overdue Gents refurb which won a Platinum Award in this year’s Pub Loo of the year competiton.  We do hope to offer you a better hospitality experience in the future so do watch this space for details.

 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.
