The Mildmay Colours is a traditional village pub located in the heart of a small, quiet, picture postcard village nestled in the beautiful South Devon countryside. We are passionate about providing a warm and friendly welcome and serving local Devon ales and ciders, and delicious home-cooked food.

Holbeton is located just off the A379, halfway between Plymouth and Kingsbridge. We are very close to the beautiful Erme estuary - why not combine your visit with a walk along the fabulous coastal path or relax on Mothecombe Beach? We are very much looking forward to welcoming you!

About our pub
The Mildmay colours is a real Devon pub specialising in Devon ales and ciders, serving great food from field, sea and sky. We are passionate about providing warm and friendly hospitality, and look forward to welcoming you - and your four-legged friend! We have a lovely terrace area for the warmer weather and a fabulous log burner for those colder months - ideal to warm up by after a walk on our local beaches.

We serve snacks at lunchtime on Saturdays, and delicious meals at lunchtime on Sundays. Evening meals are available from Tuesday to Saturday. We source our produce locally as we are keen to support our local economy. We are dog friendly and when it is quiet you may be introduced to our pub dog Merlin.

About us!
The Mildmay Colours is run by husband and wife team Rik and Nicky, formerly proprietors of The Ivy Barn Bed and Breakfast (located behind the pub).

The pub was purchased by a small group of villagers in November 2019. When pubs were closed in March 2020 due to lockdown we decided to refurbish, and after a lot of hard work including the installation of a new kitchen, the pub was reopened at the end of August 2020.

We are pleased with the result, and are very much looking forward to welcoming you.
Food and drink
We have a good range of delicious wines, including some specially selected House options which we think you'll love. Enjoy our exciting range of spirits and liqueurs, including some fabulous flavoured gin, and a range of excellent draft beer, lager and cider.

We pride ourselves in supporting local Devon independent small breweries and serve local ales, lagers and cider.

On Saturday and Sundays we are now serving light lunches of soup, between the breads, toasted / untoasted sandwiches, fish & salad dishes and Devon cream teas with freshly baked scones.
