Outdoor pursuits go hand in hand with a nice pint of ale, and nowhere in England’s southwest is quite so tempting for great outdoor adventurers than Dartmoor. Long walks end at pubs, a day’s climbing ends in the pub, kayaking ends in the pub, wild swimming ends in the pub. You get the picture. Here are Dartmoor’s greatest public houses, ready to feed you and fill you with beer.
The Globe’s life as a coach house started way back in the 1600s, and since then its role in the community hasn’t much changed. Of course, the building is now much warmer and the plumbing much more reliable, but some things just don’t change. Comforting home-cooked food comes out of the kitchen, and the two well-stocked bars all serve the finest local tipples.
