With the government's of the lockdown restrictions we reopened on 4th July and have been so pleased to able to welcome back our customers, both old and new.


Obviously this is still new ground for all of us so please bear with us as we adapt to offering a different pub experience as, at this stage, we will only be able to offer table service so we ask that you show a little patience with our staff.


We have put the necessary measures into place for your and our safety and ask you all to stay alert, use the sanitisers available for your use and to listen to advice offered by us. Please note, as required by government guidelines we will need to take contact details of all customers visiting The Sidmouth Arms.

Looking forward to seeing you all, Linda, Nigel and all the team!
