Named after the ‘Ness’ rocky outcrop that towers over it – so named because it resembles a nose or ‘nez’ in French – the Ness is a Grade II listed Inn located on the South West Coast Path in the picturesque seaside village of Shaldon, with stunning views over the Teign Estuary.

The house was originally built in 1810 as the summer home of the Clifford family (on land owned by Lord Clifford who was Charles II’s notorious treasurer and the ‘C’ in CABAL), rumour has it that the family subsequently enlarged their fortune through smuggling (via the smugglers tunnel which you can find just behind the Ness).

Today the Ness is the perfect place to rest and relax, whether it’s staying in one of our 9 bedrooms, basking in the sun in our beautiful terrace and garden, popping in for some refreshments after a day at the beach (only a couple of minutes’ walk away), or watching the winter storms roll in, in front of a roaring fire.


Opening Times

Monday - Saturday: 9.30am - 11pm
Sunday: 9.30am - 10.30pm

“On  a day when the wind is perfect the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty. Today is such a day.”

Old Mout Cider

Old Mout was dreamed up 65 years ago by New Zealander Wanda, who, on a cycling trip to England, took a liking to the local scrumpy. On her return to Nelson, she decided to set up a cidery in her shed! 60 years later, cider pioneers Justin and Scottie, inspired by amazing island fruits, developed a range of award-winning flavours in New Zealand.

Check out our drinks page for our range of Old Mout Ciders.

Our Drinks

Forum Lager

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.

Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.

The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged.  And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.

So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit.
