East Prawle is a village in Chivelstone parish in the South Hams district of Devon, England. It is situated on the coast south east of Salcombe near the most southerly tip of Devon, Prawle Point.

Mentioned in the Domesday Book the village's name comes from the Anglo Saxon word Præwhyll meaning 'lookout place'.[1] Primarily a farming settlement the village has seen little major development save to meet local requirements. During the First world War an airfield was constructed just outside the village.[2]

Local amenities include a public house, local shop, and a community hall.

Currently the only public house in the village, the Pigs Nose is noted for its live music events. Run by ex-music manager, Peter Webber and his wife Lesley, the pub has hosted Wishbone Ash, the Animals, the Yardbirds and the Boomtown Rats amongst other prolific bands.[3]
