The Kings Arms

The Kings Arms is a beautiful Grade II listed public house, dating from the early eighteenth century, with perhaps the finest elevated coastal view of any pub in South Devon. The pub’s goal is to bring a traditional village pub back to life. It is a place where people come to meet friends for a drink or dine out with each other.
The pub has always been at the centre of village life, serving both the local community and the great and the good. Illustrious visitors in the past have included the Prince of Wales in the 1930s, the future King Alfonso of Spain, and local resident Jack Yeats, Ireland's most celebrated painter and brother of Nobel Prize poet W.B. Yeats, an occasional visitor to this parish.

The Kings Arms is also home to the South West Coastal Path, as is the A379, making it an ideal pit stop for walkers, visitors, cyclists and locals. There is parking, a large garden and a kids’ play area.
The Kings Arms was opened as a community pub in October 2020, leased and run by the village and supporters. The vision is for a village hub that not only serves excellent local food and ales, but also acts as a café serving great coffee, a place where different groups meet, new friends are made, new ideas and plans are hatched and the well-being of the community is enhanced.

We hope to see you soon.
