Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Cherub

Very attractive little pub, both inside and out, with a half-timbered façade and exposed beams in the bar. There is also a dining room up the spiral staircase. Decent selection from the six handpumps, as you would expect from a Good Beer Guide listed establishment, with the 'house' (St Austell) Cheeky Cherub, Proper Job, 'Fraid Knot (£4.20) and Tomahawk from Exeter, Black Tor's Pride of Dartmoor and Old Rosie cider.

Located up a narrow side alley off the main road (or through the back street if you’ve gone off-piste). From the main road you’d easily miss it but the Higher St side shows this as an aged black and white timber building (parts of which claim medieval heritage). There’s a single small bar (you’d be lucky to get more than 30 in here) with diamond lead latticed windows, wonky wood beams (old ships timbers, apparently), padded settles. Steep, twisty and rickety stairs lead up to a restaurant area. A nice old atmosphere with plenty to keep your eyes occupied. On a busy summer’s Sunday I appeared to be the only obvious tourist - I guess it's not an obvious location though it's very simple to get to! Six pumps with five on: Hanlons Blend, Exeter Lighterman, Cotleigh, Salcombe Lifesaver and St Austell Proper Job. Halves of the latter two got me really good beer, impressively cool on a day where the temperature outside was well-over 30 degrees. Also St Austell Stout available on keg. If I hadn’t have limited time I would have stayed for another. Dartmouth is a lovely little place and this pub should be an intrinsic part of any trip there. 8.5

Ale Monster left this review about The Cherub Inn

This is a free house owned by Singer Inns and Taverns, a fantastic olde worlde pub and a fascinating building, it is the oldest building in the town and was built using reclaimed ships timbers, parts of it date back to 1380 so it is literally medieval. There is a single very small room which has a bar counter along the left hand wall, a large stone fire place on the right, genuine low beams and brass decorations on the walls. Immediately opposite the entrance on the right of the room is a very dangerous looking spiral staircase which leads up to a small restaurant and the toilets, I would not recommend having too many beers then visiting the gents in this pub.

Regular ales are St. Austell Tribute and Proper Job, Sharp’s Doom Bar and house beer Cherub Bitter (brewed by Otter) with two changing guest beers from local breweries, which on this occasion were Otter Bitter and Dartmoor Best Bitter (GBG 2011). I tried the Cherub and Dartmoor which were very good.

Other than this being a great traditional pub, it is also a magnificent building with history and character that is well worth a look. The owners have done a lovely job of retaining a genuine olde worlde feel. Only draw back that I can think of is that the pub only seats about twelve people at the most. If visiting Dartmouth I would pop in here every time without doubt.
