Although this old hotel is set on the main road through Okehampton it extends back quite a way down George Street. I'm not sure how much JDW have changed things since the previous 2011 review but I found it to be a fairly typical older JDW hotel with a rambling layout based on a long corridor with a bar counter to the left hand side. There are various areas set off this long corridor where most of the customers seemed to be in for food. There was no sign of a daytime brigade.
I noticed six hand pumps on the bar which had the JDW Trio Of Doom, Exmoor Exiles Whakatu, Purple Moose Madog's Ale and Hydes Kansas Avenue Lonesome Duck. Afterwards I noticed six more right at the end of the bar which had the two GK beers and four ciders. I went for the Hydes beer (£2.29) which was in excellent nick.
I thought this was a good Spoons but I did notice that Fish Friday here was an expensive £8.99. That's probably not surprising given the location.

Despite being an older building at heart, the facade of this hotel, restaurant and pub is a fantastic example of a Georgian coaching-inn. It is in white render, with black paintwork and has a lovely columned porch entrance on top of which is a white hart that stands proundly as a symbol if the inn. On three main levels, it has sash and dormer windows typical of the period, as well as white ashlar stone blocks on the exterior of what is the modern bar area.

The interior has a two-part bar, which is open to non-residents. The original bar area is to the left on entry. It is in white walls, with a white and beam ceiling and a red carpet. There is a fakey beam serving bar and a stone fireplace with a grate. There are pewter jugs hanging from the ceiling and lots of old prints and other ephemera dotted about. There is a long but narrow modern side bar addition accessed via the original bar and its own side entrance, which is in white and olive green, with white and white beam ceilind and wood floor. It has comfy chairs and bistro style art and stands as contrast to the original bar. There is a TV which had the horse-racing on and the music was general and at a decent level, but from the modern area. The service was professional, as i guess it was part of a larger hotel and there were a few other people in, which, by their excitement at the racing, you felt were locals.

Beer; usual tap stuff with Murphys, as well as Dartmoor IPA and Dartmoor Legend on handpull, both of which were great.

This place was a great find, as initially we stopped off to visit the castle and the Plymouth Inn. I would definitely return here if back in Okehampton.
