The Royal Oak Inn, Meavy, Devon - The perfect Dartmoor
hideaway for drinking and dining. The best village inn near Plymouth with good
beer, real ale, and fine food.
A Dartmoor Inn, the Royal Oak Inn is a free house owned by
Burrator Parish Council and is the finest Dartmoor village inn within 50 miles
Situated by the village green in Meavy, Devon, it is a
former 15th-century church house inn and takes its name from the oak tree on the
village green, which is reputedly some 800 years old. This is one of the few
remaining traditional pubs that has a flagstone floor, old beams and a large
open fireplace. The Royal Oak Inn is situated within the Dartmoor National Park,
in an idyllic location next to the village green in Meavy.
