We serve fresh food as fast as we can. Busy days can mean a slightly longer wait than the norm. We serve food all afternoon, so if you fancy a long walk along the Moors, or you got a little lost on your planned hike, rest assured we will be here serving 12-8pm each day, except Sunday, when we finish food service at 4pm.
We serve a delicious roast dinner on Sundays apart from through the summer. Typically a roast Devonshire Beef and Pork with all the trimmings, and a superb nut roast also! Sunday sittings start at 12pm and again at 2.30pm.
We do keep a few tables back for non bookings, but these are obviously not guaranteed to be available.

Second Tuesday of September each year
Widecombe fair is held every year on the second Tuesday of September, The Fair itself has become world famous thanks to the old folk song and Uncle Tom Cobley and his grey mare! Widecombe fair day opening hours are 10am – 5pm. After this time you will find The Old Inn team enjoying the evening offerings of the fair themselves and offering our support to the beer tent. Due to the sheer number of people in the village that day we can not take table reservations, however, we have lots of space to rest those weary legs so pop in for a pasty or a ploughmans and say hi.
Our free Car Park is located behind the Pub. Take the road past the public carpark heading to Natsworthy and we are first on the left.
