Gastropubs along the Avocet Line from Exeter to Exmouth are offering discounts to diners who travel there by train.
Rail passengers can get 10% off their food bill at selected pubs when they show the train ticket for their journey. The discounts will run until the end of March, excluding Valentine’s weekend, 13th and 14th February, and Easter weekend 25th-28th March. All are close to stations on the Avocet Line.

This initiative is part of the promotional campaign being run for the line by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership working closely with the Avocet Line Rail Users’ Group. To get the 10% discount, passengers need to show the rail ticket they used to get to the dining pub. The discount applies to food only and doesn’t apply to drinks. Many of the participating pubs are running separate drinks promotions.
Celia Minoughan, the Partnership’s Avocet Line Project Officer said “Passengers on the Avocet Line have a treat in store at these highly rated dining pubs. The discounts offer an excellent opportunity to try somewhere new or go back to an old favourite.”
