Down at the Fishing Shop

    There still be Pirates down in Devon.

    Beer is a picturesque ancient fishing village with stunning coastal walks. Its fascinating past includes smuggling, lacemaking, and Beer stone.

    Beer nestles in a narrow valley that opens out into a natural bay sheltered by towering Beer Head. Its name is not derived from the drink, but from the old Anglo Saxon word "bearu" meaning grove which referred to the forest that surrounded the settlement.

    Beer's long fishing heritage is still very much alive today, with a colourful population of fishing boats, fresh fish and Beer crab for sale, and mackerel fishing trips. In the past Beer was equally well known as a smuggling base and the home of notorious Devon smuggler, Jack Rattenbury.
