Wild Food BBQ and Cider Festival
This is our premier Cider Festival event of the year, where you can try scrumpy apple and pear ciders from local cider makers. The award-winning Royal Oak Inn offers great food for both adults and children. This year to bring out your wild side! we will be offering a Wild Food BBQ with a choice of Crocodile, Kangaroo, Zebra, Alpaca, Wild Boar, Buffalo and Camel Burgers. As well as Howells of Tavistock local beef burgers for the less adventurous. Try the new local ale from Tavy Ales 'Tavy Best Bitter'. It is a 4.3% traditional full-bodied honey brown bitter with a well rounded malt flavour and some early bitterness. The aroma is of malt with hints of fruit.
The Royal Oak Inn is situated within the Dartmoor National Park, in an idyllic location next to the village green in Meavy. The pub is a former 15th-century church house inn. It takes its name from the oak tree on the village green which is reputedly some 800 years old. This is one of the few remaining traditional Dartmoor pubs, with a flagstone floor, old beams and a large open fireplace. The history of the inn and its surroundings are a source of great pride for Julie and Stephen. If character is want you want from your visit then you could find no better place!
