Excellent find in an otherwise uncelebrated Devon town. A great selection of bottled English beers and a reasonable selection of imports as well. The full range of Thatchers ciders are also available. The old chap who always seems to be there is very helpful and there is a full catalog with tasting notes in case the staff member doesnít know the beer you may happen to ask about. The biggest criticism I have of the place is that the trading hours are prohibitive to anyone who actually works a normal week and doesnít happen to live in Newton Abbot!

Very good (and growing) selection, especially of local ales but also of US/Belgian beers and styles that can be hard to find in the UK. Bare wood decor with the smell and feel of the maltings behind give the place a real ambience. The chap serving was very friendly and seemed knowledgeable about his stock. Prices seem slightly cheaper than other specialist beer shops Iíve visited, plus you get a 5% discount when ordering a dozen bottles. However, no discount for CAMRA members which some other shops do offer. As others have stated, it is very annoying that many of the beers are behind the counter, plus I did notice that one or two of the beers I bought were getting quite close to their best before date - is stock rotation/ turnover an issue here? Nevertheless, I would definitely visit again if I was passing this way.

This is a really decent shop that also has a mail order online option. Not the huge choice of some other shops or online places but there is a nice focus on local south west beers and a good stab at some Belgian and US beers amongst their foreign list. One nice touch with the online ordering is that they send out a local CAMRA publication with the order which puts a smile on my face. There is very good parking situated right by this store, alos closeish to the railways sttion.

A great beer store with a large selection of English beers with a very friendly staff. The focus here is many beers from the UK but there is a nice selection of American beers as well.

Havenít yet managed to get to one of the beer festivals held here but did visit the beer shop and was pretty impressed with the selection on offer. I settled mainly for the locally brewed Teignworthy ales but a nice touch was that they added me to their mailing list and sent out updated lists of what they had in stock.

Large selection of micros, also many local brews. Staff were friendly. The beers are displayed behind a counter, but they let me walk behind it to have a closer look at them. Tuckerís Maltings are situated next to the Teignworthy brewery. All of their beers can be bought at Tuckerís Maltings, as well as their own range of Edwin Tuckerís beers.

A very good selection (plenty of well-known UK and foreign micros, but not a particularly impressive selection of local brews), but most of it is behind the counter so you canít easily read the bottle before you buy. The staff were not unfriendly, but I got the impression that regulars are better-received than strangers.
