Marc, Donna and the team welcome you to the Thirsty Farmer,
set in the heart of Whimple, just outside of Exeter.

Our aim is to provide a warm friendly welcome in our Traditional Village Pub.

A pub that has retained its charm and character with wooden beams, high ceilings and open fires.

The award-winning team at the heart of the Pub serves food and drink sourced locally where possible and freshly prepared dishes cooked to order ranging from nibbles, buffets, and celebratory meals.

Choose from our Smokehouse, Grill, Fish or Plant based menus, including a variety of Gluten free options.


Private Parties

We can cater for up to 100 people in our restaurant and more outside with buffets, BBQs, a la carte or our tasty Farmer’s Favorites.


From small business lunches or dinners to the Christmas Party, we can cater for all your business needs any time of the year.


You can enjoy free Wifi at The Thirsty Farmer so just bring your laptop. We also have a large car park, outside seating and a children’s playground.
