After addressing the nation on the evening of the 23rd March the Prime Minister has told us it is essential that everyone stays at home and avoids gatherings or to only travel if it is absolutely necessary during what is a time of national emergency. As the situation unfolds we will keep you up to speed and let you know what The Old Malt Scoop is doing. Many thanks for your continued support from everyone here at The Old Malt Scoop Inn.
Stay at home, stay safe and let’s remember to look after each other.

DiscoverOur Story

Welcome to the Old Malt Scoop Inn – a traditional country pub and restaurant in the heart of the delightful Mid-Devon village of Lapford.

Owned and managed by Linda and Trevor Voaden, the ‘Scoop’ is a free house offering a comfortable and contemporary environment while retaining many of the original features that remind you that the building is an historic Grade II listed property.

In addition to the bar with its beams and cosy wood burner, there are several elegant dining areas serving a modern take on traditional pub fare created and cooked by a highly profession and committed team. The ‘Scoop’ has a popular patio area, an extensive beer garden with wonderful views across open farmland and a large car park.

So if you are looking for great food and drink and are into exposed beams, original stone walls, wood burners and a guaranteed welcome, the ‘Scoop’ is the place for you.
