There are 8 letting bedrooms as well as a one en-suite private bedroom. The property fronts onto the main village square with ample parking directly in front of the main pub and to the rear there is a good sized level lawned beer garden with climbing frame for children.
The property benefits from radiator central heating and has two main bar areas as well as a darts/pool room and two function rooms.
The public areas are serviced by well-equipped commercial kitchens to the rear and ample cloakroom facilities.

Predominantly wet sales (70%), the business is that of a traditional village inn operated by a husband and wife team.

Monday - Thursday 12pm - 3pm & 6pm- 11 pm.
Friday & Saturday 12pm - 3pm & 5pm until late.
Sunday they are open from Midday onwards.
The pub is a free house and the owners are offering the business for sale due to genuine retirement reasons.

Property information



Living Accommodation:

With 8 letting rooms as well as a 1 bed private accommodation.


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.
