Beer is a small village lying on the South Devon coastline between Sidmouth and Lyme Regis. The name of the village is in no way related to the drink but from the meaning of the old word 'bearu' meaning grove, or forest which originally surrounded the village. Indeed the remains of the forest can still be seen from Old Beer Road. It is a pretty coastal village that grew up around a smugglers' cove and caves which were once used to store contraband goods! The remnants of this era can still be seen around the village and are indeed one of the attractions. The underlying bedrock is of chalk which produces a hard glassy material call flint, and this can be seen on a large number of the local buildings. The village economy mainly depended on fishing and some lace-making but today, the sources of income are mainly tourism and fishing. The fisherman are grateful for the protection from the sea and the prevailing westerly winds offered by Beer Head and the chalk cliffs which are the furthest outcrop of limestone on the SW coast. These features of the coastline allows local seafarers to operate in weather conditions when other towns cannot. Beer has a steep pebble beach which makes walking on the beach difficult. This has been overcome in a rather novel way: Long rubber mats — actually recycled conveyor belts — are laid down to assist walkers! This part of the coast forms part of the famous Jurassic Coast and is a favourite with fossil hunter from all over the world!

Where is Beer?
The village of Beer is situated on the 95-mile long Jurassic Coast on the south coast of Devon. It is England's first natural World Heritage Site and the beautiful cliffs including those at Beer are of course part of the South West Coast Path. Beer lies about two kilometres west of the seaside town of Seaton, about 35 kilometres east of the city centre of Exeter and 13 kilometres east of Sidmouth. A few other approximate straight line distances are: Plymouth is 51 miles (82 km) to the south west and Land's End is 125 miles (201 KM) to the South West. In the opposite direction, Central London is 140 miles (225 km) to the north east.
Where can our Beer taxis meet you?
We can of course pick you up at your home, place of work, shop, pub or any other location of your choice. However if you are needing a landmark, probably the seat between the church and Mariners, Hall on Fore Street is a good place. Otherwise there's the Dolphin Hotel, or if you are coming off the beach, we could meet you outside The Anchor Inn, or you can stay inside and the driver will come in for you!
