About the Tavistock Hotel & Inn

About

Everything you’d expect from a great local pub

The Tavi Hotel Inn is situated in the heart of Tavistock – a historic market town in Devon, located in a pleasant valley astride the fast-flowing River Tavy, 12 miles north of Plymouth, in the foothills of the stunning Dartmoor National Park.

The town grew around Tavistock Abbey, which was founded back in 961AD. It has a long and distinguished history and was one of four stannary towns where tin was weighed and stamped, and monthly courts held to regulate tin mining in the area.

Around 1540, Sir Francis Drake was born on a farm just south of Tavistock, and the famous statue to Drake that stands on Plymouth Hoe is said to be a copy of the one found in Tavistock at the roundabout on the Plymouth Road.

Through the years, in addition to farming, the Tavistock area was known first for tin mining, before becoming famous for textiles and, in the 19th century, for copper mining.

It’s now a popular town with tourists visiting England’s beautiful southwest.
