Believed to be the only inn in England bearing this name, The Black Venus Inn is a splendid old stone-built pub that enjoys a wonderful situation in the Exmoor National Park.
Inside, this historic 16th century building is full of Devon character and charm with low ceiling and original beams.
There are many circular walks that start from the pub and take in the beautiful village. The lovely little river Bray is crossed by a footbridge and a ford. Many walks take in the historic Packhorse Bridge and Challacombe Church.
Along with enjoying the very best in both homemade food and local drinks, visitors to The Black Venus can, when the weather permits, also enjoy the fresh country air by sitting out in the inn's well-maintained beer garden.
This award winning pub also boasts the top award of 5 stars for the "Scores on the Doors - Food Hygiene Inspection".
The bar is a cosy place in which to enjoy a drink or a meal from our comprehensive menu.
Food is served 7 days a week, lunchtime and evening and a choice of roasts on sundays. Fresh fish is available daily.
