Where to Eat and Drink on your Devon holiday:
When it comes to favourite drinking holes, everyone has their own preferences. Serious drinkers would say that only the ale counts, others might set their criteria based on the ambience in the pub, the location and setting or, in my case, it’s got to have good food!
It’s great that pubs these days have their own website so you can always check it out before making your way there.
So if you are looking for a place to eat and drink during your Devon holiday, give these Devon pubs a go and see what you think.

Chef-proprietor Mark Dodson worked alongside Michel Roux at The Waterside Inn for 18 years and was head chef for 13 years. Masons Arms opened in 2005 and already has one Michelin star.

At the intersection of Exeter Ship canal and Exe estuary, EX6 8EE, The Turf is one of the few pubs in the country that’s not accessible by road. The pub’s in a protected area and walking, cycling and boating are the only ways of reaching them. So maybe this could be an attraction.
