The Who'd Have Thought It Inn, Milton Combe, Near Yelverton, Devon PL20 6HP


The Who'd Have Thought It Inn in Milton Combe, is a cosy Devon Free-hold pub and Bed and Breakfast on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.  We take great pride in serving fresh seasonal food, regularly changing real ales and quaffable wines in a picture post card setting, a stones throw from the National Trusts Buckland Abbey. We welcome dogs and offer the perfect place to relax in the garden to the sound of the babbling brook or warm your cockles by the log fires in the colder months.  

The Whody is back in the care of owners Paul and Jacquie Lisney and pub dog Hector following an extensive but sympathetic refurbishment, we look forward to welcoming you.


The best of Devon and Cornwall on a plate, our menu reflects the changing seasons by making the most out of local ingredients when they are at their very best, sourced from local suppliers.  Palmers of Tavistock supply our meat poultry and game and Moby Nicks ensure we have the freshest fish from the day boat catch landing at Plymouth Barbican every day.
