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 proud to have been awarded CAMRA National Cider Pub of the Year 2023!!

We moved in to The Tom Cobley Tavern over 21 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 awarm and friendly welcome from ourselves and our staff, even including your four legged friends.

We are proud to have been awarded a Silver Visit Devon Tourism Award for Dog Friendly Pub of the Year 2019.


Welcome our Four Legged Friends

"We are a dog friendly pub and welcome you and your well behaved owners into the whole of our establishment. Please make sure your owners keep you on a lead and ensure that you are not blocking access routes and that you maintain a safe distance from other customers and our team.

You will find umbrellas in our outside beer gardens to shade you and a quiet area inside if you fancy some peace and quiet.

You will always get a warm welcome from our team and a doggy treat should you be well behaved. There is also a bowl of water in the bar area should you get thirsty during your time with us.

Enjoy your visit."


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 large picturesque beer garden to savor the pretty views over Dartmoor and the surrounding countryside.

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.


If you are struggling for gift ideas then why not purchase a gift voucher where they can celebrate their occasion with friends and family here at The Tom Cobley Tavern. Just give us a call on 01647 231314 and arrange for us to post one of your choice to you.
