“This is a 17th-century coaching Inn situated on the main Ilfracombe-Barnstaple road, and decorated with an amazing collection of curios, comprising some 450 pieces of brass, trophies of the hunt, genuine horse brasses and equipment, coach lanterns etc. Outside the Inn is the old Bude-Holsworthy-Newquay coach, and adjoining this is the Pets Corner, a miniature zoo housing monkeys, parrots, rabbits and a variety of birds, for the amusement of customers’ children.”
