Watermans Arms: The Times Top Eight Best Riverside Pubs

Watermans Arms: The Times Top Eight Best Riverside Pubs

The Waterman’s Arms at Bow Bridge on the Harbourne River has been recognised as one of the best riverside pubs in the UK.


The Times said: ‘You’ll be hard pressed to find a prettier place for a pint than this — an endearingly old-fashioned pub at the bottom of a wooded valley on the Dart, near Totnes. The tiny garden is right on the riverbank, beside a medieval packhorse bridge, and there’s a patio with a timber-framed pergola that makes a delightful spot for alfresco dining.’
