We were on our way to a wild festival and had planned to stay here for a day, but ended up staying for 2 nights, this is a MUST SEE place, the inside is amazing, I won’t spoil visitors enjoyment by saying any more

A good little pub. Very quaint and picturesque with a quirky indoors. Food was average but enjoyed the novelty of eating there. Bar maid very friendly and helpful! Just opposite Thomas a Becket church which has nice views. Free parking.

The decor was a bit like walking into the set of a Quentin Tarantino film. The landlord , was in my opinion , modelling himself as an aging rock star. He was full of what room you could and cold not go in. No price...More

A must see for its bonkers interior. Unique and our kids absolutely loved it. Great for a drink and experience but unfortunately the food was really poor. I ordered ham, egg and chips which you'd think would be a safe bet but the fried eggs...More

We were spending a day driving across the Moor, Moor Otter spotting. This venue was host to a Moor Otter and had not previously been on our radar. What an intriguing place to visit. You can see from the outside it's going to be quirky,...More

Decided we didn't want to drive straight to St Ives, so stayed at the services at Oakhampton. The nearest pub/restaurant was The Highwayman Inn. We arrived to see this find the most quirky/ spooky pub we have ever been to. The landlord and landlady have...More

Seriously odd place; worth a visit but do beware of the dodgy 240v wiring. Soda and lime £3 a pint. Those who got bar food seemed to enjoy it.

This establishment needs to seen to be believed, unique decor which befits the initial viewing from the exterior. I would have given four and a half stars if it were possible. Down graded as the coke was flat and so 'not' refreshing.
