Pub Guide


Around 96% of the pubs in Britain are listed, with details, on the WhatPub website. All have been independently added and updated by thousands of CAMRA volunteers.

Micropubs are a recent development and are proving increasingly popular. A micropub is a small freehouse which listens to its customers, mainly serves cask ales, promotes conversation, shuns all forms of electronic entertainment and dabbles in traditional pub snacks. A website listing all micropubs can be found here.


There are in the region of 430 pubs and clubs in our South Devon CAMRA branch area, of which around 350 offer real ales. CAMRA's WhatPub website includes details of them all and it's updated and maintained, free of charge, by CAMRA members. The map below shows the location of each pub and club in our area. Clicking the marker will show more details.

Some pubs generously offer discounts to CAMRA members. The pubs can be found here
