Home of the Highwayman

One of the many unique external features of The Highwayman: Sally”s Olde Curiosity Shoppe.

We have been busy at the Inn and offer some intriguing eating and dining areas.
The Oval table near the wishing bottle and rune bowl.
One of the intimate Locker bar tables
The Window table next to the Minator!
The Boot area for more casual drinking or eating.
The Witchy table is an interesting magical area.
The Tunnel is very private and a suitable place for secrets to be told and plans to be made!
The amazingly atmospheric Galleon Bar suitabe for larger parties from one household and anyone who ever wanted to be a pirate or indeed a piratesse!
The Goddess courtyard with Demeter presiding is a nice outdoor space too on sunny days.
The Boot area is fun too when it is not raining! Bring on the sunshine.

With restrictions now lifted, we will be maintaining our present regime which means we are open now indoors and out from 12 until 3 ( last orders for food is 2pm) and in the evenings from  6pm until 9 (with last orders for food at 8 pm).  Booking for food essential.   Maximum number of people is 6 per table inside the inn. 

Closing on Sunday evenings and every Monday. 

Things have been magically juggled around and they have made the inn more spacious.   

Social distancing between tables is still in place, along with table service.  You can order at the bar too with care.   We ask that customers behave responsibly and that masks continue to be worn when not seated.   

Lots of people have not been fully vacinated yet and many of these are young peope who are the future of the country.  I think we do need to protect them. 

We have lots of little tricks in place to keep you safe and a fab new unisex loo too outside!  Camper vans are welcome on our days open and parking is free if  a meal is purchased at the inn.  However parking is limited so please phone to secure a place.  Look forward to seeing you.  

Please ring or email me if you have any queries or want to book info@thehighwaymaninn.net or 01837861243.  It will be nice to see you and do still take care.

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.

We hope hope to schedule intimate  music events in the future.   See Events page for more details.  

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

Lunchtime and early evening food and drink includes gluten free, organic, vegan and vegetarian options.

One of the many cosy seating areas

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.
