Update Widecombe Fair has been cancelled for Sep 2021.
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.
