Welcome to Tuckenhay

Scene at TuckenhayThe 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 as well as an eight-man bunk dorm and two basic double rooms with a shared bathroom (for those on a slightly tighter budget).

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