Tom Cobley Tavern Pub and Bed and Breakfast


Tom Cobley Tavern a Family Friendly Pub in Spreyton

The Tom Cobley Tavern is a family friendly pub in Spreyton. We moved in to The Tom Cobley Tavern over 10 years ago now and have turned this traditional 16th Century pub into the hub of local village life in Spreyton.

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 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. Here at the Tom Cobley Tavern, 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 an 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 here at our family friendly pub in Spreyton.

You can step back in time here at the Tom Cobley Tavern into our dining rooms with their low beamed ceilings and traditional oldie worldly feel to savor a traditional meal with friends or family.

Here at the Tom Cobley Tavern you can even stay the night as we offer Bed and Breakfast in Spreyton. Please see our 'Accomodation' page for more information.

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.

A car park to our family friendly pub in Spreyton is available to our customers, which is located to the side of the pub.
