St Austell Brewery has acquired its first site in Exmoor National Park - the Bridge Inn in Dulverton.

The property, acquired from a private vendor, will join the brewery’s tenanted estate from July.

Steve Worrall, retail director at St Austell, said: “We’re delighted to add the Bridge Inn to our tenanted pub estate - a fantastic property and our first in Exmoor National Park. Having been managed so well for over twelve years by Kenny and Rachel McDonald, the Bridge Inn is a wonderful opportunity for somebody who wants a new challenge, running a successful pub in a stunning location.

“Our tenancy agreement provides people with the opportunity to take on a successful business that is at the centre of the local community, as well as attracting guests from far and wide. The Bridge Inn also benefits from being in one of the most beautiful locations in the UK - a great place to live & work. Naturally, it can be hard work, but our tenancies are ideal for those with a passion for hospitality and a strong head for business.”

The Bridge Inn comes with three-bedroom accommodation in the heart of Dulverton, a small town at the gateway to Exmoor.
