In the heart of the West Devon village of Shebbear on the edge of the village square, the pub is in an eye-catching position which is easily accessible to tourists and locals alike.
Shebbear is a thriving village offering a pleasant atmosphere with a historic church, general store/off licence and a private school: Shebbear College. Nearby towns include Hatherleigh: 7 ½ miles, Torrington: 8 miles, Holsworthy: 9 miles and Bideford: 16 miles.
The pub is in the heart of the village and is famous for the turning of the stone - namely the 'Devil Stone' which is turned on the 5th of November every year. The stone is 6ft x 4ft and is said to weigh a tonne. Legend has it that when the stone is turned the village will be safe from harm in the forthcoming year. The pub is also reputed to have a tunnel from the pub function room to the village church.
