Researchers contend that a 9th-century Devon 'longhouse' existed on this site before a more modern re-build in the 13th century. Originally a farmhouse beside a stream, with its own well, it was only converted into a pub and restaurant in 1982, and is most probably the finest example of a 'longhouse' to a pub conversion in the South Devon area. The interior is on three separate levels, the lower level being the the main entrance foyer with the restaurant/function room and toilets with easy disabled access. The bar is accessed by 3 steps. This historic pub changed hands in August 2018.
