To provide high quality traditional pub fayre through our daily

 

The Sandygate Inn is one of the oldest pubs in Kingsteignton and can trace its origins back to at least 1675 when the cartographer John Ogilby recorded it on his map of Devonshire. Mr Ogilby’s map showed the main routes across the county and these remained largely unchanged when the Bowen brothers published a similar map in 1753. Neither map noted the establishment as The Sandygate Inn but noted it under the name of  Tom the Trumpeter.

18TH CENTURY PUB

The present pub dates from the 18th century and was created from two former adjoining cottages which have been knocked through to form the present structure and has been granted a Grade II listing status by English Heritage.

 

A new road built by a local Turnpike Trust in the 1830s created a new route from Coombe Cross through Millpark to the cross road at Strap Lane and created the Five Lanes junction we see today. The plan also incorporated a new route across the marshes from Oakford to Newton Abbot and this new route soon attracted the bulk of the Exeter to Newton traffic relegating the Sandygate route to a secondary position.
