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.

Summer opening hours: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 till 3 and 6 till 6, Sundays
just 12 till 3. These hours will be throughout August and September. Also open on some Bank
Holidays but please check beforehand.


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”
