The Pub


The Oak is an award winning local community inn specialising in good quality real ales and outstanding food. There is a separate dining room, four luxury bedrooms and a covered courtyard area. Located at the heart of the small, peaceful Dartmoor village of South Brent which is between Buckfastleigh and Ivybridge, The Oak offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.

Dogs on a lead with well behaved owners are more than welcome in the bar area of the pub. We know there are people who are not so keen on dogs for various reasons such as allergies so we keep the dining room dog free. We also regret to advise that we do not accept pets in our B&B rooms.
