The Pyne Arms are open for bookings!

 

 

The Pyne Arms is a traditional country pub in the small hamlet of East Down just off the A39 between Barnstaple and Lynton. It is set in a valley with rolling acres of land and rises in bold hills to the north. It is conveniently placed for visiting Exmoor and the North Devon coast. For meals we recommend booking ahead by phone or email.

The Pyne Arms was relaunched in 2012 and is offering locally sourced food with a modern twist with everything from a Sunday roast to speciality fish on the menu.

The pub is convenient for those visiting the National Trust property of Arlington Court, also just off the A39 beyond the East Down turning.

Watermouth, Combe Martin, Woolacombe, Saunton, Croyde, Lynton and Lynmouth are all popular places to visit in the area and the Pyne Arms is just a short drive to stunning Exmoor National Park.

We are a dog friendly pub which is ideal as there are many public footpaths in the area for walkers to enjoy.

At The Pyne Arms, our emphasis is on providing locally sourced food with a modern twist with everything from a Sunday roast to speciality fish on the menu.

Exmoor Food Fest 2017 gets off to a splendid start

A week ago, several award-winning chefs came together in the kitchen of the Luttrell Arms in Dunster to prepare an outstanding seven-course-meal marking the official launch of the 2017 Exmoor Food Fest.

Head chef Barrie Tucker was joined by Paul and Donna Berry (The Swan), Andrew Dixon (The Café at Porlock Weir), Olivier Certain (Clavelshay Barn) and Ellis Pannell (Pyne Arms).

Each course was perfectly matched with exclusive wines by Dirceu Vianna Junior MW, Wine Director at Enotria&Coe, who commented: “Congratulations for putting together such amazing event. It seems that everyone really enjoyed the excellent food and brilliant atmosphere.”

Nigel Way, owner of The Luttrell Arms Hotel, introduced each of the chefs as their courses were being served, said “The Guest Chef Dinner is a celebration of food and drink from across the region. We are happy to support the Exmoor Food Fest which provides a valuable platform for fine dining, and its success brings benefits not only to restaurants here in Dunster but to the economy of Exmoor.”

Elke Winzer said. “The launch of the Exmoor Food Fest 2017 at The Luttrell Arms Hotel was a great success, not least because of the untiring enthusiasm and support by the Luttrell’s team for the festival. They put together a fantastic Guest Chefs Dinner showcasing the talent and high quality local produce on Exmoor and it was a fitting start to the third Exmoor Food Fest.”
