The ancient Bearslake Inn is the perfect venue to celebrate Halloween. With its beams, real fires and centuries of history the Inn is set to host a celebration of All Hallows’ Eve that’s even more spooky than usual!\\ A Halloween-themed three-course dinner with choices for each course, including vegetarian options is £35 per person. It will be followed by a talk from Simon Dell entitled ‘Bodies on Dartmoor’! The Inn will be decked out with carved pumpkins with staff dressed in suitably ghoulish garb to add to the spooky atmosphere. Dinner will be served at 7pm followed by Simon Dell’s talk at 8pm. You can see the full menu on the Bearslake Inn website – advanced booking and a deposit are required. ​
