Three Devon pub winners in the new Good Pub Guide 2018

The Tom Cobley at Spreyton, Nobody Inn at Doddiscombsleigh and the Rugglestone Inn at Widecombe-in-the-Moor were all named among the country's best locals.

The Tom Cobley Tavern dates back to the 16th century, and may be the 1802 starting point of Uncle Tom Cobley and his companions for the journey to Widecombe Fair, in the well-known folk song.

With over 400 whiskies, the Bon Accord in Glasgow is Whisky Pub of the Year 2018 .

But The Nobody Inn at Doddiscombsleigh in the Teign Valley is a runner-up because of its famous collection of hundreds of malt whiskies.

The 17th-century village traditional pub has oak-beamed ceilings, log fireplaces and seating in a country garden.
