See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This pub was built as the 'New Inn' in the 18th century at the same time as the construction of a new turnpike road between Exeter and Ashburton. The name was only changed to the Welcome Stranger in the late 1950s. This hostelry still provides for the wants of the traveller or holidaymaker. Today it is a free house run by chef owners and it has been very extensively refurbished. It has 3 regular SW ales plus a changing guest ale also from local small breweries. It has a popular following for food, with a very extensive menu, but still retains a pub style part of the bar for drinkers and dart players.
