The Pigs Nose Inn

East Prawle Kingsbridge TQ7 2BY 01548 511 209

We say

Think of Camden Town circa 1985 transported to the middle of nowhere and you'll get some impression of this popular pub and music venue. Set on the most southerly point of Devon in the little village of East Prawle, this former smugglers inn is now cluttered with fading muso-memorabilia and interesting junk, and full of regulars (local or otherwise). There's often live music going on in the adjacent parish hall, and in the summer it's frequented by the campers who use the fields surrounding the village to wild camp - campers can use the showers and toilets. There's a pool room, games and toys for children and even a 'knitting corner'. The whole place is laidback, shambolic – and great. Food is basic but tasty pub fare. Play ‘spot the once-famous ageing punks’ in the high season.

My favourite pub in the world! Ever! ★★★★★

This is my local, so I suppose I'm biased but, it really is an amazing pub. Such a great atmosphere, and a lovely fire in the colder months. Crazy crazy things happen here, from celebrating the birthdays of local dogs to produce on offer from local smallholders on a Sunday lunchtime. The pub has also just received the Camera Pub of the Year, South Devon 2013 award. We all knew it was the best, but lovely to have it confirmed and a real accolade for the landlords, Peter and Lesley Webber and the smashing staff.
