Location and contact

The Sidmouth Arms is located in the picturesque village of Upottery, just 5 miles from Honiton in the glorious East Devon countryside. Choose from our tempting selection of home cooked culinary delights or simply sit back and enjoy a pint (or two) of one of our very popular, locally brewed, Otter beers! We are open all day, seven days a week, so whatever the occasion, a family gathering, birthday party, impromptu lunch or simply to enjoy a relaxing meal in our traditional country pub, the Sidmouth Arms is perfect for every occasion.
