The Grampus is set in the heart of one Britain's most picturesque villages. Parts of the building date back to the 14th Century, and until the 1970s, this was a working farm. Now a Free House, with a tea-room that opens between Easter and October, it is a favourite with residents and holiday-makers alike. Families are catered for, and walkers and dogs are always welcome.
Bill stocks a variety of local guest ales, as well as an interesting selection of cider and lager. All of the wines are organic, including their distinctive house-wines, which they import directly from Spain. The usual spirits and soft drinks are also available, as well as teas and coffees.
Food is very important at the Grampus, with an emphasis on home-cooked dishes, and, wherever possible, locally-sourced produce. Popular both in and out of season, it is advisable to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
Although Lee is a small village, there is enthusiastic support for pub games. There are thriving skittles, darts and pool leagues, as well as a variety of games available to visitors including chess, backgammon, scrabble, dominoes, cards, and the opportunity to play darts, pool or table-tennis.
The Grampus also provides other forms of entertainment, such as live music, quiz nights, discussion groups and craft evenings. The pub is a vital part of village festivities throughout the year including Christmas, New Year, and Twelfth Night.
The pub is home to a small village shop, which provides basic amenities as well as ice-cream, chocolate and postcards, and the kitchen is happy to provide perishable goods where possible. There is also a small selection of holiday reads to be bought, or swapped for another book.
Visitors come to Lee from all over the world to enjoy this beautiful village. Some stay, some visit for the day, and some pass through. With the Grampus only a few hundred metres from the South West Costal Path, it is an ideal spot for walkers to stop for refreshments, or an evening meal if you are planning Bed and Breakfast elsewhere in the village.
Bill looks forward to meeting you, and adding to your enjoyment of a visit to Lee.
