The Tavistock Inn

Perfectly placed in the rolling hills of Dartmoor, this ancient inn (dates back to around 1413) is an ideal place to stop for a good selection of real ales and traditional pub grub. Dogs are welcome.

A charming old coaching inn where Conan Doyle stayed while writing The Hound of the Baskervilles!

We knew we had to visit this ancient pub once we discovered that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stayed here while writing The Hound of the Baskervilles (and we watched the Basil Rathbone film the night before to get us in the mood!) We were not disappointed as the pub has retained all its traditional charm and we had a great time playing cards by the beautiful old fireplace. The food is decent trad pub grub, pies and pasties etc., real ales and the staff were very friendly. We also found a little car park just before you enter Poundsgate which was perfect for a glorious walk on the moor (lots of ponies sighted too which delighted our children!)
