About the hotel

The Pack Horse Inn is the oldest existing Pub in South Brent, Devon. It has medieval origins & one of the beams in the pub is said to be off a medieval ship. The Pack Horse existed in the 14th century and could even be as early as the 13th century.

An old English welcome greets you at our family run Inn, with local real ales, friendly atmosphere & a large open fire. Escape the hurly-burley of modern day life & enjoy old world charm, real food, drink & good company at The Pack Horse. Built in the medieval times as a resting place for the packhorse trains that carried goods between the farmers & miners on Dartmoor & the trading towns closer to the coast, today it offers comfortable, well equipped bedrooms and a home cooked breakfast, with all dietary needs catered for. Should you wish to eat we have a wide range of fresh local produce, home cooked meals, baked pizzas from our pizza oven & fresh battered fish. One Saturday in the month we will be having live music. Please contact us or take a look on our Facebook page if you would like more information. The property is ideally located in the centre of the historic village of South Brent close to the A38 Devon Expressway, halfway between Exeter and Plymouth. The Pack Horse is great for hikers, with convenient access to Dartmoor & 20 minutes to the seaside. Bring the rod, as its also a good spot for fishing! If you wish to bring your own bike we have dry storage to store them. We are the only Inn in the village with its own car park. We believe we are responsible for achieving good environmental practice & operating in a sustainable manner.

Good breakfast-little else to compliment this place!!

This pub is a drab and dreary place which needs updating but so does South Brent.The room was adequate and the bed comfortable but the rip in the curtain,the tatty sash windows to one side,the dangerous quality of the shower which ran scalding then cold,the wash basin which was loose on the wall and the disgraceful damp in the side wall behind the sink made us decide that one night was enough.

There is no eating area apart from the bar itself with three or four tables to one side of the fireplace. However the freshly cooked breakfast was very good.

This was our 2nd stay at The Pack Horse and we had the same room as last year which as a lovely view of the Dartmoor hills, Room was spacious and clean, a good variety of cereals and fresh fruit was available for breakfast, and the full English was excellent.

Thanks to the proprietor's for another very enjoyable stay.
