Here at The Tom Cobley Tavern we are a family run business who pride ourselves in creating a warm and friendly atmosphere for both the locals and newcomers.
We moved in to The Tom Cobley Tavern over 17 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 were awarded Devon Life's Food and Drink Awards Community Pub of the Year 2012.
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, even including your four legged friends.
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.
We are proud to have just been awarded a Silver Visit Devon Tourism Award for Dog Friendly Pub of the Year 2019.
Welcome our Four Legged Friends
