Royal Oak InnIdeford
Nestled in the centre of the ancient Saxon village, below Lower Haldon Moor is this thatched 17th-century cosy single bar inn. Internally there is an open fireplace, a flagstone floor and beamed ceiling. A previous Licensee was a great admirer of Admiral Nelson and naval memorabilia of that age can be seen adorning the pub, including a manequin in a naval ratings attire of the time of the Battle of Trafalgar. There is a small covered patio at the rear of the pub, with further tables across the road, at the side of the carpark. For the the energetic, it is possible to get to the pub by bus - take either the 46 or X64 to Ideford Dip on the A380 and, it is then a pleasant 20 minutes stroll through the lanes to the pub.
