Browns Hotel, Tavistock successfully combines historic with luxurious and classic features with modern style. This 17th century coaching inn has been skilfully restored to become a beautiful 4 star hotel, whilst retaining much of its original charm and character.

Browns Hotel is most famous for the memorable dining experience it offers guests. The Library Restaurant and Wine Bar is the social hub of the hotel and a place to settle in and enjoy the finest dishes and best of locally produced beers, wines and lavish cocktails.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner with a selection of tempting menus provided to cater for all tastes. A tantalising taster menu and a well-designed vegetarian menu are just some of the options offered. The team at Browns Hotel pride themselves on providing guests with an unforgettable, first-class dining experience. Making the finest quality, locally sourced ingredients a priority, the Head Chef and creative kitchen team have compiled mouth-watering menus of contemporary British cuisine. For something special, why not experience the chef's "Taster Menu" or Afternoon Tea, which is served in the hotel's private courtyard in fine weather? The well-stocked wine bar at Browns also reflects the ethos of sourcing produce nearby. Guests can enjoy locally brewed beers, wines and ciders in the warm surroundings of the lounge.

Browns is a place where guests can completely unwind and recharge. After a delicious dinner, settle into an inviting couch in one of the lounges to enjoy a local beer or cider or a zingy cocktail by the open fires.

The Whitchurch Inn, Tavistock

Map showing The Whitchurch Inn, Tavistock

Family owned since 1999 this 13th century Church House Inn is a favourite of locals and visitors alike. The Inn is ideally located between Yelverton and Tavistock on Church Hill next to the beautiful village church of St Andrews.

Since taking over the owners have transformed The Whitchurch Inn by exposing all the original oak beams and some natural stone walls. Two wood burners at either end of the deceptively large bar ensure that a warm welcome is felt by all. You may also like to visit our other charming inn, The Rock Inn at Yelverton just a few miles away.
