The Bull Inn – Totnes, Devon
By | 1 month ago
This radically ethical pub with rooms at the top of Totnes high street is run with a people and planet first ethos, and guided by a triumvirate of its own ‘No-Bull Rules’ for how to dine, trade and work in the most eco-minded way possible. That means organic beer and wine alongside simple, seasonal veg-led food (grown not flown), day boat fish and ‘mindful meat’ for the daily changing menu in the restaurant. Nine sustainably designed and stylish rooms feature lime plastered walls, reclaimed furniture, reworked vintage fabrics, handmade tiles, organic mattresses and linens, and artisan-made lighting. None of this comes as a surprise when you learn that the owner is Geetie Singh-Watson, who opened the world’s first official organic pub, The Duke of Cambridge, in Islington in 1998. For families, there is The Albatross, a four-bedroom, self-catering apartment across the road with a private terrace. Plus, there is an event space where all kinds of creative workshops (drawing, watercolours, making with willow), classes and talks are held.
