Located right on the edge of Dartmoor National Park (just five minutes from the famous Haytor Rocks) but still very much in touch with civilisation, our hotel is just a 7 minute drive from the A38.
Built in 1879, The Edgemoor Hotel was once Bovey Tracey Grammar School for boys and walking around it, the history is still very much alive today.
The Edgemoor is a family run hotel and being local, independent and unique is at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves on being professional but informal.
Here at The Edgemoor Hotel, everybody is welcome.
THE GYM BAR
With tall ceilings which were once draped in ropes and climbing bars in the old boys’ school gymnasium, Physical Education has been replaced with the eating and drinking great food and drink in the Gym Bar!
The Gym Bar is all about kicking back with friends for a relaxed, hearty meal that you can enjoy with your walking boots on. If you’re passing through after a wet and windy walk and need a bit of home comfort and a place to dry off, come and join us. Your furry friends are welcome too of course!
Food in the Gym Bar
Our Gym Bar Menu is filled with hearty British classic pub food such as Devon Fish & Chips and Dartmoor Sausages, Mash & Gravy. We also have some lighter bites, perfect for the smaller appetite, such as Toasted Ciabattas and a warm bowl of comforting soup.
Just like our restaurant, local, seasonal produce and low food miles is threaded throughout everything we do in The Gym Bar.
In the winter you can roast chestnuts on our open fire, whilst looking out of our gorgeous tall windows to the windy world outside. There’s nothing more comforting than snuggling up next to the fire with a pint of real ale or a glass of red.
Our Famous Drink Selection
If you love gin, then you’ve come to the right place. Our bar staff serve our famous ‘Bath Tub Gin’ in a huge glass with big balls of ice, cucumber or lime. With Bombay Sapphire, Plymouth Gin, Hendricks and many more local and independent brands, our bar staff know how to serve the perfect thirst quenching G&T. It even comes with a surprise, but we’re not going to tell you what that is just yet!
At The Edgemoor Hotel, we also have a huge passion for whisky. We have a wide selection of whiskies for you to choose from and also have a very close relationship with local whisky producers Dartmoor Whisky Distillery.
