Our Community Group
The Sir Walter Raleigh has served the community of East Budleigh and beyond since the beginning of the 20th century, although the building dates to the 16th century. The pub was offered for sale in April 2021 and in February 2022 we invited the community to purchase shares and raised enough capital to buy and refurbish the pub. We opened our doors in March 2022. The pub is staffed by a mixture of paid-staff and volunteers and is run for the benefit of everyone who lives, works and visits East Budleigh.
