Welcome to The Tom Cobley Tavern
Last year we were awarded Exeter and East Devon's CAMRA Rural Pub of the Year 2015 and 2016, Exeter and East Devon's CAMRA Pub of the Year 2016 and CAMRA's South West Regional Pub of the Year 2016 (Runner Up).
We moved in to The Tom Cobley Tavern over 14 years ago now and have turned this traditional 16th Century pub into the hub of local village life in Spreyton. So much so that we have been awarded Devon Life's Food and Drink Awards Community Pub of the Year 2012 and Devon's Best Sunday Roast Finalist 2014, Winner 2015 and Finalist 2016.
We are a family friendly pub in Spreyton where everybody is welcome, from the young to the old, from singles, to couples, to families; everyone who comes through our door will receive a warm and friendly welcome from ourselves and our staff. We even welcome dogs in to our bar and snug area and if they are really good they may even have a bowl of drinking water and a doggy treat given to them!
In the colder winter months, customers love to sit by the roaring open log fire in our bar area with its unique thatched bar, drinking in the atmosphere of our award winning pub in Spreyton. In the summer months they escape to our picturesque beer garden to savor the pretty views over Dartmoor, or watch the world go by in idealistic Spreyton on our graveled area at the front of the pub, shaded from the sun by an umbrella.
You can step back in time here at the Tom Cobley Tavern in our dining rooms with their low beamed ceilings and traditional oldie worldly feel to savor a traditional meal with friends or family and discuss the history associated with our pub as it was from this peaceful, whitewashed pub, one day in 1802 that a certain Thomas Cobley and his companions set forth for Widecombe Fair, an event immortalised in song.
