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.
