See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Now an attractive restaurant and licenced caf�, the Puffing Billy reopened in May 2015 after a prolonged period of closure. One well kept local ale is usually available, together with two real ciders and a selection of cask conditioned bottled beers. Built of the local Torrington Stone and formerly the railway station serving the town, the Puffing Billy maintains a railway theme and is now a hub of the popular Tarka Trail, which runs alongside the restaurant. Cycle hire is available nearby. Good value meals, snacks and cream teas are served, with breakfasts available from 9-11am. Look out for the large and impressive pictures of dogs. Longer opening hours in summer.
