Welcome to Tuckenhay


The Maltsters Arms is a superb riverside pub, restaurant and bed & breakfast nestling in the picturesque Dart Valley. Steeped in history, this 18th Century Inn is located in the hamlet of Tuckenhay, which was once a hive of industrial activity.

Within easy reach of Totnes, Dartmouth and the stunning South Devon coast there is no better place to while away a few hours while enjoying a bite to eat or a cold beer.

Once owned by the infamous TV chef Keith Floyd, The Maltsters Arms is a warm and welcoming place and extremely popular with locals and visitors alike.

During the summer months the outdoor ‘Croc Bar’ and quayside dining is buzzing with activity –  music, boats mooring, kayaks launching and children crabbing and feeding the ducks. And in the winter it makes an inviting hideaway with the open fire, board games and warming home-cooked food.

There are plenty of local ales to choose from and a carefully selected winelist. Our lunch and dinner menus offer fresh, seasonal and locally sourced dishes as well as Daily Market Fish Specials including whole crab and Surf n Turf, River Exe moules and fish and chips.

The Maltsters Arms has adjoining riverside accommodation with six beautifully appointed, double en-suite rooms, three of which offer river views across the stunning Bow Creek.

For places to eat in Devon, it is well worth navigating Bow Creek or the winding lanes to reach this very special place.
