The town of Bovey Tracey, also known as the Gateway to the Moor, offers easy access to endless Dartmoor countryside and the Cromwell Arms, being in the heart of the town, is a fantastic place from which to explore the whole region, from the moors, tors and villages, to the beaches of Devon and the rest of the South West.With Exeter, Plymouth and Newton Abbot easily accessible from us, together with being only 10 miles away from the sea, our location is an ideal stop over for a business trip, a weekend break or for longer staying guests who are holidaying in Devon.

We are very proud of our cask ales and have a good reputation for keeping our beers to how they should be.  We are regularly inspected by Cask Marque and even CAMRA pay us a visit now and then.  Our beer is very popular with seasonal ales, more traditional ones and sometimes, we even have an “exclusive” from our brewery.  These all go down a treat with our regulars.

We have an extensive range of wines of the world to choose from and this changes on a regular basis to suit our customers and local needs.

We also have a selection of regional ciders, bottled beers, 100% pure fruit juices made a few miles away in Exeter – there is something for everyone here.
