Lighter Inn | Stunning English pub with terrace in Topsham, Devon

Welcome

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.
