Reverted now to its former name, The Heanton Court has recently be refurbished to a high standard. Originally an ancient manor house for distinguished families descended from Edward IV, it was more than twice its present size until the 19th Century when the southern part was removed to make way for the now defunct railway line. The old stone building began to be let out to farmers around this time, with its castellated towers making it one of the grandest farmhouses in North Devon. Today this country pub and restaurant serves hearty seasonal pub food along with three real ales and a good selection of fine wines. The pub garden is particularly attractive, with sun all day and beautiful views over the Taw estuary.
