Balfour Arms Information


A real hub of the community, the Balfour Arms is everything you’d expect from a great local. Traditional home-cooked food in our fantastic restaurant is complemented by a fantastic range of drinks from our bar including real cask ales, refreshing lagers & ciders, as well as a wide selection of gins & wines.

Our brand-new letting rooms are the perfect getaway for anyone looking to stay in Sidmouth. All rooms are complete with comfortable super king or twin beds, television, shower, hairdryer, high quality toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities. Our amazing rooms also come with a traditional home-cooked breakfast to match. Vegetarian or vegan? We have you catered for too.

At the Balfour Arms in Sidmouth we pride ourselves on being the very best local that caters for all your needs in a warm and relaxed environment. Our excellent staff will make the Balfour Arms feel like your home from home. Somewhere you’re always welcome and relaxed, whether by yourself, or with friends or family. We’ve got that warm welcome, the sense of community, the relaxing atmosphere. Deborah and Victoria, who run the Balfour Arms, are both from the Torbay area, just a bit further down the coast. After many years of experience between them in the hospitality trade, they took over the pub in October 2019 and have already set up the Balfour Arms Community Trust Fund, and make the pub a community hub that brings everyone together to support charities and good causes in the area. So come and visit us, drop in, feel at home…
