Our Bar

Our CAMRA award-winning pub offers ales, cider, gin and vodka from the West Country – and more!


The Trooper Inn is Open!

All subject to Covid-19 guidelines and of course the weather; outside table service only for Rule of 6 or 2 households per table.

We thank you all for your amazing support in these difficult times.
Stay safe,
Kindest regards, The Troopers xx

See bottom of website for our new opening hours.
These days and times are only applicable up to 17th May 2021.
After this date we hope to be able to offer table service inside the pub with Rule of 6 or 2 households applicable and increase our opening hours, again subject to Covid-19 guidelines at that time.


  • Real Ales

    Real Ales

    We typically have three personally-selected real ales on tap - and we ensure they are ever-changing.
    The West Country is home to many great independent breweries, so we are spoilt for choice!
  • Traditional Bar

    Traditional Bar

    We have everything else you'd expect from a village pub too - including lagers and ciders on tap and bottled, a range of local and imported bottled beers, selected wines to suit pallet and budget, as well as spirits, including our extensive gin menu.
  • West Country Vodka

    West Country Vodka

    We offer a range of vodkas, including Black Cow Vodka, made in West Dorset.
    Black Cow is the world's only pure milk vodka!
    It is made entirely of whey from grass-grazed cow's milk. The whey is fermented by a special yeast, distilled and then filtered through coconut-shell charcoal, producing an exceptionally smooth vodka with a unique creamy character.
  • Range of Gins

    Range of Gins

    Gin-lovers will enjoy our extensive gin menu, including the renowned Plymouth Gin which is produced at the historic Black Friars Distillery.
    Plymouth Gin was traditionally popular with the Royal Navy, being mixed with tonic water for the anti-malarial properties of quinine - the original gin and tonic!
  • Cocktails

    Cocktails

    There's an exciting range of cocktails too!
  • Soft Drinks

    Soft Drinks

    We have specially selected an extensive range of non-alcoholic soft drinks.
