I’ve been asked to make a 360º pub guide, so if your wondering what its like inside you’ll find out here. You’ll find a growing list of different establishments appearing as I explore with the camera in & out of Torbay.
Enjoy An Evening Drinking With Bays Brewery. You'll be shown all the equipment, the fermentation room, taste the different wheats and smell the malts that are used to flavour and colour the beer. They explain thoroughly the entire process, even down to the spent grains being given to the local farmer to feed his cattle, so there's little to no wastage.
I hadn't been in here since they completed the rebuild. It is now a large, modern pub designed around serving food. It has three levels, the front has a big beer garden with tables and umbrellas, I believe it's the only beer garden offering outdoor dining in Dartmouth. There are several cool metal sculptures of dragons around and some wall art of ships from all ages on the River Dart and in Dartmouth Harbour.
Enjoy a pint with a view. This is a great place to eat or just sit outside with a beer, in the sun overlooking the Harbour.
I had a great afternoon enjoying some locally made cider down at Hunt's. They have been making traditional farmhouse ciders since 1805.
Newton Abbot family firm East Street Pub Company has taken over the pub which was previously known as the Mermaid, Murphy's and Gio's.
Formerly a 19th-century hotel on the seafront overlooking The Green. Now owned by the Marstons Group and these days a quiet pub
Known locally as 'the Nellie' it's a cosy, friendly old-school pub.
A great pub based on the TV series with the same name, if your wearing a peaked cap then you might just get a free shot. This pub is steadily becoming Paigntons best for live music attracting some well known acts to perform.
Sky Bar & Bistro is a nice and quite restaurant.
In the sleepy riverside village of Calstock is this 17th century free house on the bank of the River Tamar in a beautiful location with fantastic views of the viaduct and part of the Tamar Valley Line Rail Ale Trail.
Great location with great views. One of my favorite places to eat or just sit outside with a beer, in the sun, in torbay!!
In the small riverside village of Kingswear is this traditional 15th-century English pub. It has spectacular views from the terrace overlooking the river Dart. Comfortable bar area where two open fires add to the warm atmosphere.
If your out after 1am in Paignton then this is the only place to go and also the cheapest.
