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 Farmers Favourites menu, Tapas, or from the ever-changing specials including Fresh seafood, Vegan and Gluten free options.
