See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

On the border with Somerset, this attractive building (circa 1600) has been a pub since the early 1700s. It is situated in a small rural hamlet, a mile from Hockworthy, and stands on a crossroads of ancient routes. There are rooms on either side of the bar, and a dining room. Two wood-burning stoves are the main source of heating and provide a warm, friendly atmosphere in the winter months. The pub is frequented mainly by locals and used to be on an old trading route (wool and whisky). Good home-made food is available during opening hours.
