Quality live music in south Devon
he Pigs Nose Inn in East Prawle, has been a smugglers’ pub, hotel and petrol station during its 500-year history, but on Saturday nights these days it rocks!
This tiny village local has hosted the likes of Curiosity Killed The Cat, The Animals and The Boomtown Rats on its small wooden stage. So why do these famous rockers travel miles of winding country lanes to the most southerly point in Devon?
It’s all to do with ex-music-manager-turned-pub-landlord, Peter Webber. Ten years ago he decided to start a pub with a difference, with quality live music at its core – and we think you’ll agree that he’s succeeded.
But as well as sharing the pub with rock fans (by seven o’clock every table is taken), you’ll also find you’re sharing it with pigs (albeit kitsch ceramic ones) and dogs, who are welcomed and even given their own menu.
There’s plenty to do when the music stops, too, like Backgammon, pool and er, knitting. Now that’s rock ‘n’ roll.
