One of Devon’s most celebrated foodie pubs the Treby Arms in Sparkwell is under new ownership. The pub, which has undergone a turbulent few months having lost its Michelin star status and the subsequent departure of head chef Luke Fearon, is looking forward to a fresh start under new owner Jamie Stevenson.

The plan is to offer a more relaxed style of dining at the rebranded ‘Elements at The Treby Arms’ with all the ingredients that have made a success of his boutique hotel with restaurant, Elements, and Italian restaurant La Bocca in Bude. They have picked up five-star reviews on Trip Advisor for their combinations of fresh Italian food, great service and relaxed, easy atmosphere.

“Italian food is perfect for families who want an affordable meal in an easy-going setting,” says Jamie. “The newly styled ‘Elements at The Treby Arms’ restaurant will offer the combination of fresh, sustainable, local ingredients with the Italian know-how of chef Leo from Naples.

 “We make it child-friendly by giving them nice things to do that make it fun to go out. It’s also really important for it to be affordable, so a family of two adults and two children can eat out for about £60-65.”
