Originally built as a farmhouse in the 18th century. Recorded in White's Directory for 1850 as an inn. Probably started selling ale and cider to farm workers and miners in the locality before becoming solely an inn. With the increased traffic along the B3193, following the opening of the Great Western Railways 'Teign Valley Line' in 1882, and the subsequent opening of a railway station at Christow, the inn found itself in a busy position. There used to be a cattle and produce market held ever first Monday in the month at the rear of the inn and the meadow in front was used as a racetrack for horses.
