Aaaaaaah The Rugglestone Inn…right in the pretty village of Widecombe in the Moor, this Grade II listed inn has it all. There’s all the character you hope to find during a day out on Dartmoor, a spacious beer garden with plenty of seating for those who prefer to dine outside, and a cosy woodburner in the bar for those chilly days when the sofa beckons.
There are many ways to enjoy the best of Dartmoor, but we can safely say that few of them beat sitting outside a picturesque pub surrounded by the landscape that’s made the national park famous. With Widecombe in the Moor just a short stroll away, The Rugglestone Inn is a popular stop off with walkers and those visiting Dartmoor, and part of the garden’s charm is that to reach it you have to cross a little bridge.
The menu showcases a selection of homemade foods, and as the pub uses local suppliers it’s a great opportunity to sample the true taste of Dartmoor. The bar offers all the usual favourites, including real ales, farm cider and guest beers from the region. Dogs are welcome but owners are asked to keep them on their leads.
