Kings Nympton, EX37 9ST, Devon
England, United Kingdom

A picture gallery of faces old and new, beams hung with bookmarks and grey slate floors. The menu has the same blend of classic and original

The pub is in the heart of old Kings Nympton, a 'natural sacred grove' – raise a glass to your good fortune in being here. There are paintings of Devon countryside, a picture gallery of faces past and present, beams hung with bookmarks, stone walls, a slate floor, a wood-burner. Old and new combine with understated ease. Robert is the perfect host, Deborah uses the freshest produce to create her menus. Try roast May's Farm beef or Brewers Farm lamb for Sunday lunch, smoked trout with horseradish sauce, wild rabbit stew with mash, fish pie, and white chocolate cheesecake with Patrick's blackcurrants. Ales are from local breweries, ciders are Sam's Dry and Poundhouse, wine and champagnes come by the glass, and there are over 65 single malts.
