Fresh, affordable and great for families

From young families to people in their 80s we have something for everyone. Our food is very easy and it’s good. We welcome groups for birthdays and celebrations, and there will be offering many special offers to look out for.

The idea is to keep it traditional downstairs and fresh and funky upstairs. The bar is very separate to the rest of the business where you can still enjoy a good beer, wine or spirit of your choice without being in a restaurant environment. The restaurant ‘element’ of the business will consist of fresh and tasty Italian food, great service and relaxed, easy atmosphere. We’ve made it an affordable place to dine with family and friends.

Our History

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.

Over the years renovations have included: converting the old living space upstairs into a new dining room, moving the bespoke kitchen upstairs and extending the bar area to ensure that locals have a relaxed and welcoming place to enjoy their favourite tipple.
