Places to eat

We feature five places to eat within the villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo. A mixture of pubs, bistros and tea rooms give the locals a variety of options.

The Ship Inn

The Ship Inn is an award-winning waterside pub run by Lisa and Charlie Bullock. It has been completely renovated using reclaimed materials, English oak, local stone, and lots of love and affection. The style is strong yet simple, spacious yet cosy; it feels like a proper pub – unfussy, uncomplicated but pleasingly functional.

Enjoy good, fresh, homemade food, great beers and interesting wines, while surrounded by wooden floors, old furniture, log fires, bookcases and dozens of local pictures.

We love beer and our cellar is stocked with a good range of regional and local beers, many from brewers that know us well. Our regular beer comes from Noss Beer Works, just down the road, and we have guest beers from Princetown Breweries on Dartmoor, and other local brewers that share our passion and pleasure in beer!

When you know who brewed it, somehow it tastes better!

Food is served daily 12:00 to 21:30

The Swan Inn

Situated opposite Pope’s Quay in Noss Mayo, The Swan Inn reopened its doors in July 2018. This family-run pub with iconic waterside views offers homely food, friendly service and a classic choice of drinks and real ales.

The Swan Inn is a dog- and family-friendly pub, serving fresh food for lunch and dinner, specialising in fish dishes. It also offers all-day coffee and regular live music nights. You’ll find a charming beer garden at the front of the pub with stunning views overlooking the quay, Newton and Noss, and the River Yealm.

If you’re in Noss Mayo, do enjoy a drink or a bite to eat at The Swan, and relax in one of the most beautiful places in Devon.

Food is served Tuesday to Sunday from 12:00 to 20:30

The Dolphin Inn

Located on the riverside overlooking Newton Creek to Noss and the Pool, The Dolphin Inn is a family- and dog-friendly, traditional pub. And you can always expect a warm welcome by the staff, managed by Nicky and Jonathan.

The Dolphin Inn is open every day in the summer, with varying hours in the winter. It serves upmarket, traditional pub food daily, and breakfasts are offered during the summer months. The Sunday lunch is also not to be missed.

As a free house, you’ll find a wide range of ales, bitters, lagers and ciders which can be enjoyed indoors by the fire on a chilly day, or in the sunshine overlooking the estuary views in the outside seating area.

Food is served daily 12:00 to 21:00

Tearoom on the Green

A short stroll through Newton Ferrers to the top of the village leads you to the delightful, and quintessentially English, Tearoom on the Green. Formerly the general stores and also a dress shop, the tearoom first opened its doors in 2007.

Now run by husband and wife team Alison and Peter Dixon, a warm welcome awaits you. Alison and Peter offer everything you would expect from a classic tearoom – loose leaf teas, locally supplied coffee, cooked breakfasts, light lunches, daily specials and, in the winter months, roast lunches served on a monthly basis (booking recommended). Alison prides herself on baking quality homemade products, including her very popular cakes and scones.

Favoured by those in Newton Ferrers, Noss Mayo and the surrounding areas, the Tearoom on the Green offers plenty of outside seating during the summer months. And it’s an ideal meeting place for family and friends to warm up in the winter months around the homely log burner.

So, do pay a visit to Alison and Peter, and enjoy a cup of tea, breakfast, a homemade cake or a traditional cream tea.

Open all year round, Wednesday to Sunday 10.00 to 16.30

Yealm Yacht Club Bistro

Located on the first floor of the clubhouse, Yealm Yacht Club’s bistro restaurant commands fabulous scenic views of the beautiful Newton Creek, and across to the village of Noss Mayo.

Recently renovated throughout with a fresh, but aptly nautical theme, dishes vary from week to week, with fish specials and a healthy dollop of Sicilian flair thanks to Head Chef, John Provenzano. Available for members and their guests, dinner in the bistro offers great value, with a three-course menu and a bottle of wine for two for around £30 a head.


Tuesday to Thursday: 18.30 to 20.30
