The welcome you receive in a Dartmoor Pub takes you back to the old days; many of the Dartmoor Inns haven’t changed in decades, still serving beer from barrels behind the bar in jugs. Yes the standard of the Pub food has gone through the roof but it’s the old fashioned atmosphere in a traditional Dartmoor Inn that does it for me. Its something that makes the real ale taste its best, drinking, listening to local musicians and having a pint with the locals, magic! Pub life on Dartmoor still exists, in fact it's a thriving pub culture on Dartmoor. Beer and ales still flow and many pubs are proud to serve Beer, ale wine and cider only produced in Devon.

Unlike many other rural pub cultures Dartmoor people embrace the touring visitor, born out of a long history of involvement with travelling folk to the beautiful Dartmoor countryside. The pub opens a window into the way of life of the people who live and work on Dartmoor, just listening, but maybe being invited to join in the conversations gives an insight to the pace and way of life lost in the majority of England. The tight-nit Dartmoor community often surprises even the familiar, with functions and parties for appreciated people, summer cricket and world renowned fairs being organised by great numbers of people for little self reward. The hub for the generation of ideas usually being the village pub, fine real ales being the oil for the imagination.
