About The Mussel Inn

A cosy, traditional pub with the warmest of welcomes situated in the heart of Down Thomas on the south coast of Devon

With delicious, locally-sourced food and a wide array of drinks for all occasions, The Mussel Inn is loved by both visitors and locals alike.

Our mission

Here at the Mussel Inn, we aim to deliver a welcoming and first-class service where there is something for everyone and nothing is too much trouble. It is this approach, together with our lovingly prepared and locally-sourced food, that will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed. 

Terrace and beer garden

Here at The Mussel Inn, there is an outside terrace area for diners and drinkers. Tables are available on a first come first served basis so we suggest you arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Our new beer garden has a play area for children, so they can play happily while you relax with a well-earned drink.

Children are welcome to use the play area provided but must be supervised at all times.

Food & Drink

All our food is supplied by local, sustainable suppliers throughout Devon and Cornwall. Our menus change on a regular basis so the details below may be slightly different on the day! Our team of chefs have a mixture of experience, talent and a curiosity to explore new dishes. We have even been known to catch our own fish from time to time!

Muddy boots and dogs welcome

The Mussel Inn is a dog friendly pub and we love seeing the array of four legged friends visiting us. We have dog bowls, biscuits and even doggy ice cream for those warmer seasons! There is also a dog wash station located outside the pub for after a long country walk.

Being situated in the South Hams country side, we are lucky to have so many beautiful walks right on our doorstep. Click the button below to see our favourite walk straight from our door!
