Food and Drink in Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers

Local Pubs

There are 3 pubs within walking / paddling distance of Anchor Cottage. They all look out onto the river, they all serve food and they all have amazingly friendly and helpful staff. We are truly spoilt!

The Ship Inn, Noss Mayo

The Ship Inn is an award-winning waterside pub run by Lisa and Charlie Bullock. It has been completely renovated using reclaimed materials, English oak, local stone, and lots of love and affection. The style is strong yet simple, spacious yet cosy; it feels like a proper pub – unfussy, uncomplicated but pleasingly functional.

The Swan Inn, Noss Mayo

The Swan Inn is a dog- and family-friendly pub, serving fresh food for lunch and dinner, specialising in fish dishes. It also offers all-day coffee and regular live music nights. You’ll find a charming beer garden at the front of the pub with stunning views overlooking the quay, Newton and Noss, and the River Yealm.

The Dolphin, Newton Ferrers

The Dolphin Inn is open every day in the summer, with varying hours in the winter. It serves upmarket, traditional pub food daily, and breakfasts are offered during the summer months. The Sunday lunch is also not to be missed.

As a free house, you’ll find a wide range of ales, bitters, lagers and ciders which can be enjoyed indoors by the fire on a chilly day, or in the sunshine overlooking the estuary views in the outside seating area.
