Award Winning!

  It’s been a massive effort and having been open for only a few months, we are all super proud to have been awarded with these. 


After a devastating fire in September 2021, The Tradesmans Arms has risen from the ashes and has now been beautifully restored back to its original glory.

Once again a warm welcome awaits you from this award winning 14th Century thatched pub and restaurent with luxury accommodation situated in the picturesque village of Stokenham.

Considered to be one of the prettiest pubs in Devon, The Tradesman’s Arms is the ideal location should you wish to visit us for a pint of traditional real ale, a glass of fine wine, a light bite or an enjoyable evening meal.

Inside, you will find a relaxed ambiance full of style and comfort with its cosy interior. Whilst in warmer months the stunning beer garden and colourful hanging baskets further enhance this charming South Devon Free House & Restaurant.

Our talented Chef Lee Holland, takes real pleasure in cooking culinary delights and delicacies using Devon’s finest produce that always reflects the season of the year.


Our talented Chef Lee Holland joined the team in March 2024 and has already been awarded 1 AA Rosette for culinary excellence.

He has been in catering from the age of 16, working at The Hilton London, in the Channel Islands, Goodwood and Disney Cruise Line as Excutive Chef. More recently he was Head Chef for the Tanner Brothers.

With a passion for using locally sourced, seasonal produce he creates high quality dishes at affordable prices, this makes him the perfect match for The Tradesmans Arms.


There is lots to enjoy on our doorstep. We are a stones throw from some beautiful beaches, Slapton Sands, Blackpool Sands and Torcross to name a few and harbour towns like Dartmouth which sits on the River Dart with the Royal Naval College on the hill, Start Point Lighthouse, Salcombe & Kingsbridge both on the tidal estuary, and everything in between.
