The Palk Arms is a 16th Century Free House, situated 2 miles from Bovey Tracey, within Dartmoor National Park.

This independent village pub has locally brewed real ales, great wines  in a relaxed atmosphere with extensive views over the Teign Valley.

Join us and enjoy the atmosphere in a proper country pub!

There is a village carpark 30 cows lengths from the pub plus on street parking.



We’ve got some changes to tell you about. After a much needed holiday, our Head Chef Gus has decided to move on to new ventures and we wish him the best of luck for this. We would like to thank Gus for his time at The Palk Arms, the amazing food and passion he injected into the team to help us deliver the quality of service we are really proud of.


But, this leaves us in a tough position. With our current set up, we don’t have enough people to be able to provide the quality of service you have all come to know and love. We do not want to lessen our quality to any of our customers, so Mike and the team have been working flat out while Gus was away - but this is unfortunately not sustainable.


So, we have made the decision to take a break from serving food until we can enhance the team to bring back that service too you all. 


We remain open as always for drinks as we have always been, but please rest assured this is only a break while we regroup. We hope you all understand we will return as soon as it’s possible for us to do so, if you have a booking with us this week we are honouring all of these bookings but we won’t be adding to them. If you feel like you would rather cancel we also completely understand. 


As always thank you for you ongoing support.

Mike, Dan & The Palk Arms Team.
