The Pigs Nose Inn

A country pub nestled in the heart of East Prawle – in between Salcombe and the super hound-friendly beach and walking mecca of Slapton Sands – owners Lesley and Peter Webber are so dog-orientated that the pub has its own mutt menu, specifically designed for punters' four-legged friends.

The pub oozes character, dating back over 500 years to an era when it was a smugglers inn, where 'recovered' booty from shipwrecks was stored in various hidey-holes around the building. There are secret coves and caves all along this coastline – the sneaky smugglers of old would have known them like the back of their hands, but you and your dog can spend many a happy hour getting lost in them, before retreating back to pub for a pint of real ale (the Pigs Nose has a bewildering selection, all served from the barrel). Besides the local beaches, dogs can run their paws raw in the many fields that surround the pub in all directions. Once hound and human are happily exercised and comfortably fed, there are plenty of places to relax in peace here (no juke box and no fruit machines to ruin the atmosphere), including a knitting corner.
