The Packhorse Inn South Brent

Welcome to the Packhorse Inn


Linda and Ken would like to welcome you to Devon. Situated within the village of South Brent, on the outskirts of Dartmoor, with its open fires and traditional pub food you will always be made to feel welcome.

The Pack Horse is the oldest existing Pub in South Brent. It has medieval origins and one of the beams in the pub is said to be from a medieval ship. The Pack Horse existed in the 14th century and could even be as early as the 13th century. It was the resting place for the Pack Horse trains that carried goods between farmers and miners and the trading taverns closer to the coast. Situated between Ivybridge and Buckfastleigh on the A38 it is the perfect base for your holiday break.

The Pack Horse has a tradition for folk music on alternative Tuesdays. Traditional pub games such as euchre are also played.
