Ashburton has had a reputation for its pubs, inns and coaching houses for hundreds of years. Its importance as a Stannery Town and its location on the main road to London meant that many a weary and hungry traveller tarried a while.

Today is little different except that the travellers who visit it today are doing so mostly for leisure rather than to trade. Many of the pubs and Inns still exist today along with a good selection of Tea shops, cafes and good quality restaurants.

Our 'eating out' section covers something for everyone, from award winning restaurants to good old 'pub-grub'. This page lists opening times and contact details to help you find your perfect meal.
