Major Award Won by The Ax

The Axminster Inn is very happy to announce that we have WON the 2021 Exeter & East Devon CAMRA Pub of the Year National Beer Scoring System. This is a fantastic achievement for a fully tied Brewery Pub. It is believed that this is the first time a fully tied brewery pub has won it.

Only runner-up this time..

The Ax managed to get 2nd spot in Exeter & East Devon CAMRA's Community Pub of the Year 2021, but again this a major achievement for us when you look at some of the pubs we are up against in Exeter and East Devon - which is a very large area...

In light of the terrible events in the Ukraine, Palmers Brewery have delisted all Russian products. The Axminster Inn does not sell any Russian products.

As from April 2022, our monthly quiz will be in aid of Axminster Carnival. The Carnival Committee need this money to enable them to continue with all the good work that they do. We are only too pleased to help and will be charging our quizzers £2 per head.


The Axminster Inn has, for the 6th consecutive year, been featured in CAMRA’s prestigious Good Beer Guide 2022, considered the definitive beer drinker’s guide to the very best pubs in the country.  The 4,500 pubs listed in the Guide are independently selected by CAMRA volunteers around the country based on the quality of Ales sold at the bar – inclusion can never be bought or sold.

Cask Marque

The Axminster Inn has been awarded the prestigious 5 Star Cellar Rating by Cask Marque.


The Axminster Inn is the Only pub in Axminster to be awarded the Cask Marque and the only pub for a long way to receive the 5 Star Cellar Rating.

Master Cellarman of The Year

2022: The Axminster Inn has been awarded the Palmer's Master Cellarman of the Year Award for THE 5th YEAR IN A ROW.

Gary & Karen were honoured to accept this award for all the Team at the Ax as we strive to make every pint the perfect pint...
