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

An original 16th Century Coaching Inn on the main A39 "Atlantic Highway", this pub and hotel is ideally situated for those wishing to explore the local Hartland area. Good home cooked food is served both in the attractive bar area, where there is a welcoming open fire, and in the separate restaurant. There is a large private function room for wedding receptions and business meetings, a hot tub and gymnasium, together with plentiful parking. Many years ago were West Country Inn fairs, held in the spring and autumn, when livestock was sold and hiring of labour was arranged. At one of these fairs, a 17 year old girl called Elvira, was taken from the Inn and murdered. It is her ghost, and the ghost of her killer (who committed suicide), that haunt the Inn. Families, coach parties and touring caravans are welcomed.
