The Trehill Arms is a fantastic pub situated in the affluent town of Ivybridge. Ivybridge is a bustling town set on the banks of the River Erme, ideally situated between Dartmoor, Plymouth and South  Hams. The pub itself was refurbished at the end of 2016 with Admiral Taverns investing £300,000. The pub has since flourished under the current licensee who due to personal circumstances, have decided to leave.

Pub Layout

The Trehill Arms oozes charm with its modern yet rustic décor. The refurbishment has kept numerous original features such as the fireplace and exposed brick. The fixtures and fittings balance out the rustic tables and chairs creating a relaxed dining feel. The bar is well appointed with two separate rooms which leads off from the relaxed and informal area. The pub has around 50 covers with its  current layout. Externally there is a rear enclosed courtyard. There is a pay and display car park nearby although the majority of locals enjoy the stroll to their local.

The Trehill Arms is a great example of a good old traditional dining pub. It has a fantastic reputation and is well supported by many locals. The spilt is 60% food and 40% drink sales. The large well-equipped catering kitchen allows the pub to produce a great quality food offer with mains between £12 – £14 per meal. The bar is well stocked with a vast array of premium spirts, lagers, unique wines and cask ales. They have great online social media presence and reviews.
