Are you travelling down to the Jurassic Coast? Why not pop into our other Restaurant Pub, The Harbour - Axmouth


The Harbour, Axmouth is a beautiful thatch-roofed traditional public house set within the stunning Devon countryside in the quaint village of Axmouth, just a stone’s throw away from the Axe Estuary popular with walkers and birdwatchers.

The Harbour is the perfect place to enjoy classic pub food with family and friends at great value prices. Our comfortable, relaxed atmosphere provides the perfect setting for any occasion, from a snack with friends in the bar to a classic Sunday Roast with the whole family.



Axmouth is only one mile from the historic town of Seaton, which overlooks the sea and is part of 95 miles of Devon/Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.


The Harbour is a Grade II Listed building which dates back to the 12th Century. There is a huge stone fireplace in the main bar where the tradition of making a faggot dates back hundreds of years and still happens to this day.


The burning of the ashen faggot takes place every Christmas Eve, when a massive faggot in a hazel twig bundle, some six feet long and three feet wide, fills the pub’s open fire. The faggot burning is accompanied by verses and carol singing.
