This Weekend

The shop is open today for the usual hot pasties and pies, hand-made croissants, cakes, evening takeaway and off-licence. To help us in the move to trading in the Garden Bar, we will be closed tomorrow – Sunday but we will be happy to supply beer if you call on 775285. See you in the Garden on Tuesday, if not before!

We will be re-opening soon!

We have decided, after much deliberation, that we will NOT be opening on Saturday 4th July. Instead we will be waiting a week or two so that we are able to complete work on the new garden area and bar, making sure it’s safe and comfortable for you!

The shop will be open as normal for the time being.

Please see below for details on how we will be operating when we do open the garden bar area.

We thank you profusely for your unwavering support and patience during this trying time. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to post them here, message us directly, phone us on 01626 775285 or come and see us in the shop!

Stay safe!

2nd Anniversary and Latest News on re-opening the pub

Everyone at the Old Commercial Inn Bishopsteignton has been involved in helping to keep our business trading as a bakery, off-licence and shop while the bar is closed. We have taken the opportunity to do a lot of re-furbishment and improvment work which we weren’t able to do when we first came here two years ago as we wanted to keep the pub open for the village.

This week we would have marked our second anniversary with a special event but the restrictions caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, understandably have meant we are forced to postpone any celebrations until it is safe for everyone to enjoy being together.

Yesterday the Goverment announced the lifting of restrictions on hospitality businesses from the 4th of July and we are definitely planning to re-open as soon as we have everything in place to ensure the safety and comfort of both customers and staff. Your continued patience and support is much appreciated and we can’t wait to show you what we have been up to behind the scenes. As soon as we have further news we will give you full details on how we will be operating within the Government guidelines and we really look forward to seeing you all again.
