AboutThe Ley

Tucked away in the picturesque Kenn valley, near Exeter, The Ley Arms country inn has welcomed locals and travellers since the 13th century.

Now, The Ley, as we affectionately call it, serves traditional pub dishes with ingredients plucked from the surrounding garden that is Devon. They call that provenance and it’s what The Ley is all about.

We’re proud to source local produce wherever possible – we serve the best the county has to offer from our fabulous partners. See our Local Food Suppliers.
