Visitors exploring the Slapton Ley Nature Reserve and South Devon coast should venture inland to seek out this ancient inn. Tucked away behind the church and standing beside the dramatic, ivy-clad ruins of the chantry tower, the 14th century Tower Inn is a truly atmospheric village pub, originally built to accommodate the artisans working on the monastic collegiate next door and later became the college’s guesthouse.
The Tower Inn boasts traditional features such as stone walls, open fires, scrubbed oak tables and flagstone floors, all part of the historic interior. There are three cottage-style en suite bedrooms and a superb rear garden where guests can relax and enjoy a beverage in the summer months.
Head chef, Dominique Prandi, has been privileged in working with Michelin star chef, Jean Christophe Novelli and now brings his experience and expertise to The Tower Inn. Focusing on locally-sourced, seasonal product, his team creates new and unusual elements to their dishes, and also serve the traditional classics. There is always a wide selection of local meats, poultry and fresh fish on our menus as well as vegetarian delights. We also have a daily specials board which usually features some wonderful fresh fish caught in Start Bay that day.
