In the winter, we have an open log fire and, for warmer times, there is a large south-facing patio and grassed garden with one of the oldest wisterias in Devon. We have plenty of free parking for guests, and free WiFi.

‘We enjoyed our three days at the Thorverton Arms, a lovely original building not spoiled by being over- restored or over-prettyfied. It is in a great location for walking and cycling in the beautiful Exe Valley and estuary, and a great alternative to staying in the traffic and bustle of Exeter. We enjoyed Stephen’s excellent breakfasts.’

‘We had a very enjoyable stay. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The bar was very lively. The beer garden under the wisteria was charming. There was an excellent green for walking the dog close by.’

‘This is the second time we have stayed at this pub. Again the welcome, the rooms and food were a good standard. I like the welcome and attentiveness the staff and the owner give you.’
