The Weary Ploughman has an excellent location near Brixham and close to Agatha Christies Greenway.


Popular all year round with locals and visitors alike, the Weary Ploughman offers freshly cooked food with an attractive restaurant and comfortable lounge bar. You can even enjoy a short break in one of their five, individually styled bedrooms. Its a good choice for beachcombers, nature-lovers and walkers, individuals, couples and families.

The Snowdon family are celebrating 5 years of ownership of the historic Weary Ploughman Inn in June this year. To celebrate, Helen and Mike are offering the first 100 bookings of 4 or more diners (who have reserved in advance), a bottle of house wine (worth 13.95) for only 5. Locals also have the chance to sign up for the new Very Important Ploughman Club, which gives a range of great benefits to regulars.

The Weary Ploughman sources most of its fish from Kingfisher, and Channel Fisheries - who have the Royal seal of approval! Lamb comes from Blackawton near Dartmouth and sausages come from Poole Farm at Ipplepen. Most of the beefis from West Country farms and free-range eggs come from Marldon. Delicious Yarde Farmice creams come from this well respectedfamily owned businessin Langage, near Plymouth.

Real Ales are always sourcedfrom Devon or Cornwall, with Bay's Gold, Otter Bitter, Sharp'sDoom Bar, Skinner's Betty Stogs,Teignworthy Reel Ale, Princetown Dartmoor IPA & St. Austell Tribute being just some that have beenoffered recently.


TIP OF THE MONTH Mike says, May and June are really popular months in Brixham due to the legendary events taking place such as Brixham Pirate Festival (5th and 6th May), BrixFest (2nd to 4th June), English Riviera Geopark Festival (2nd 10th June), Brixham Trawler Race (16th June) and much more.
