The Pub

  • Fresh Fish Daily

Believed to be the only inn in England bearing this name, The Black Venus Inn is a splendid old stone-built pub that enjoys a wonderful situation in the Exmoor National Park.

Inside, this historic 16th century building is full of Devon character and charm with low ceiling and original beams.

There are many circular Exmoor dog walks that start from the pub and take in the beautiful village. The lovely little river Bray is crossed by a footbridge and a ford. Many walks take in the historic Packhorse Bridge and Challacombe Church.

Along with enjoying the very best in both homemade food and local drinks, visitors to The Black Venus can also enjoy the fresh country air by sitting out in the inn's well-maintained beer garden.
