Welcome To The Grampus Inn

To all our family and friends, we hope you are all enjoying the holiday season, despite the unusual circumstances that we all find ourselves in! Despite the constantly-changing restrictions and  the lockdowns, we have had a great year and have very much enjoyed being able to welcome our friends back to the pub in a safe manner. 


However, with the increase in Covid cases, coupled with the many people travelling to North Devon from other areas for the holiday season, we have made the difficult decision to close The Grampus temporarily. The safety of our staff, our families, and our community are of the utmost importance to us. We will therefore close on Christmas day and re-open in the new year when we feel it is safe and appropriate to do so.


We will continue to operate our village shop and are happy to do takeaway orders on request and with prior notice. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is anything that you need over the next few months - whether it’s basic supplies, a hot meal, or if you need prescriptions etc collected from Ilfracombe. We are very happy to help out however we can! And of course we will continue to sell beer, wine, cider, etc for takeaway.


Have a very happy and safe holiday and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!

The Grampus is set in the heart of one Britain’s most picturesque villages. Parts of the building date back to the 14th Century, and until the 1970s, this was a working farm. Now a Free House, it is a favourite with residents and holiday-makers alike. Families are catered for, and walkers and dogs are always welcome.

We value wholesome home-cooked food, so all our dishes are made on the premises and all meat, poultry, fish and eggs are free-range and sourced locally. We do our best to cater for different diets – whether you are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or raw – but please speak to us if you are unsure about what is available. We hope you enjoy eating at the Grampus as much as we do!

We don’t just do good food – we also serve real ales from our own brewery, Grampus Gin which is distilled onsite including locally sourced botanicals and our extensive wine list is designed for us by Louis Barroul, a grower of fantastic biodynamic wines which are all excellent value for incredible quality, and our coffee is organic and supplied by Owens with every cup being freshly ground to order.

We can now do all 30+ of our wines by the glass, (except when very busy) using the coravin wine system, which keeps opened wine in perfect condition indefinitely!
