We consider the pub to be our home and the customers our friends. We have a great bunch of locals here who always help us to welcome those visiting the area.
James & Anita
A little bit about us...
James - Originally from Montreal, I moved to Newton Abbot in 1994 where I worked as a teacher for 20 years before taking ‘early retirement’! I'm into guitars and playing music; I always welcome a bit of a 'jam’ at the pub.
Anita – I’m originally from Worcester. I studied culinary arts in collage and started working in the kitchen here at The Sandygate in 2016. Prior to this, I created bespoke meals for a wrestling company we had. I am a true lover of dogs... especially my totally ADORABLE pugs!
It was Anita who had the dream of running our own pub and, as the Sandygate Inn was our local, we looked for one just like it, but couldn't find one anywhere – it’s truly a one off! By chance, in November 2017, the opportunity came up to manage the Sandygate Inn... we jumped at it and this led to us taking over the tenancy in Feb 2019. We haven’t looked back.
We love to entertain and we aim to get everyone involved! Our live music nights have proved to be a huge success and our occasional variety nights are fantastic – anything goes (and usually does!). We are also extremely proud of our August Bank Holiday charity event which has just been re-branded 'SandygateLive; where we have raised over £4000 for the ‘Daisy Garland Charity’.
We look forward to seeing you at the Sandygate Inn!
