The Waterman’s Arms, Near Totnes

Located right on the Bow Bridge River is this charming 17th century inn. The Waterman’s Arms serves delicious homemade food in a welcoming atmosphere – perfect for walkers to stop for a quiet drink amongst nature or for couples wanting a romantic candlelit meal by the babbling brooks.

Welcome to The Waterman’s Arms – nestled on the edge of a river and surrounded by trees, this pub boasts an idyllic location for serving tasty, local Devon produce cooked with love and care. With plenty of outdoor seating right next to the water, you will always get the best seat in the house and your four-legged friend is welcome both outside and at the bar. Pop by for lunch and tuck into some tasty light treats from hot baguettes and paninis to generously filled jacket potatoes to hearty soup served with a fresh crusty bread. If you’re wanting to fill up before that long walk by the coast or in the country, then you can sample crispy and succulent fish and chips, meaty local trio of sausages with creamy mash or the old favourite of ham, eggs and chips – ooooh!

If you’re strolling by the river in the evening, The Waterman’s Arms has a delectable selection to tantalise your taste buds. Some of the lunch time menu is up for grabs at dinner and you can also enjoy pub favourites such as sirloin steak, homemade burgers, a vegetarian mushroom, brie and cranberry wellington and our personal favourite; juicy chicken breast stuffed with brie and spinach and topped with a creamy wine sauce. A special meal out isn’t complete without finish up with dessert! Whether you’re wanting a generous platter of local cheeses or something to satisfy that sweet tooth, there are a plethora of naughty treats to choose from.

Visit by day or night, cosy up by the wood burner in the winter or sit by the flowing river in the summer and enjoy a wonderful visit to The Waterman’s Arms.
