History

treby-1

A household inn in the small village of Sparkwell. The Treby Arms was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, whilst he and his Team were building the Royal Albert railway bridge that now connects Plymouth to Cornwall. The pub was built for his workforce to socialise and rest during the building of the bridge. We are led to believe that the pub dates back to 1855, around the same time that the bridge was completed. This is when life at The Treby Arms began.

It was taken over by Anton and his wife Clare in May 2011 and they began renovating and transforming the pub whilst keeping the true feeling and features of a good old country pub. Recent renovations have included: converting the old living space upstairs into a new dining room, moving Anton’s bespoke kitchen upstairs and extending the bar area to ensure that locals have a relaxed and welcoming place to enjoy their favourite tipple.
