The Red Lion Inn, Dittisham

Located in the heart of the picturesque waterside village of Dittsham, set deep in the countryside of Devon, is this charming and characterful inn. Not only serving delicious traditional pub grub, this lively establishment is also the home to the local shop, post-office and community library making it the vibrant hub of the village.

The Red Lion has been running since 1750 and offers homely dishes in a beautiful waterside setting. Child-friendly and dog-friendly, everyone can tuck into a home cooked meal, made with locally sourced ingredients and fresh fish and meat straight from the market. For a truly special experience, book a table on the outside terrace and enjoy the peace and quiet of the River Dart.

The quaint little shop sells a range of goodies to try – all locally sourced so you can sample the authentic taste of Devon. From fresh breads to homemade cakes to seasonal fruit and veg and, most importantly, a delicious range of cheeses! There are also freshly made croissants sold in the morning which are perfect to grab and munch on whilst you stroll down the river for your morning walk.

Whether you’re wanting a warm meal after a day of exploring the delights of the South Hams, looking to learn more about Dittisham in the community library or just after some supplies to whisk up a delicious dinner for your loved ones during your getaway, be sure to visit The Red Lion Inn – the heart of this lovely and peaceful village.
