Set back from the road in the pretty North Devon village of Merton stands the thatched Malt Scoop Inn.

The interior of the Malt Scoop matches its idyllic exterior, with a traditional, unpretentious front bar serving local ales from the likes of St Austell Brewery. If you join us for food, you’re in for a treat. We offer a delicious and varied menu along with our Specials board. You can enjoy good pub grub whether you fancy a bite to eat at lunch, evening dining or a relaxing Sunday lunch in our bar or restaurant. Dogs are most welcome in the bar and large garden with their well-behaved owners.

Extend your stay and enjoy our relaxing atmosphere for longer in one of our two comfortable and cosy dog-friendly rooms above the bar.

The New Menu is now available for light bites at lunch and hearty evening dishes. Sunday Lunch is available from 12noon – 4pm – it is advisable to book in order to guarantee your table.
