A pub for the whole community in Topsham
Located in the historic Saxon town of Topsham on the banks of the Exe Estuary, the Lighter is a picturesque example of the friendly, classic English pub we all know and love. Great for locals and visitors alike we’re family and dog friendly as any great pub should be. With flagstone floors, a log burner and large terrace right on Topsham Quay – with its resident Black Swan – the Lighter is cosy in winter and glorious in the summer. The perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city or break a journey on the way to Cornwall.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, The Lighter will now need to open to the public a little later than anticipated.
We will be open from Thursday 27th May for walk-in drinks only, and on Thursday 3rd June for bookable tables and for full food service
We are taking online table bookings for up to six people at this time. If you are from two households and have a total number of guests greater than six, please telephone us to make your reservation.
Tues-Thurs: 11.30-3pm 5.30-10.30pm
