Mid-Devon period village inn changes hands

The Earl of Portsmouth pub in the mid-Devon village of Chawleigh has changed hands.

The pub, which dates back to the 17th century, is a former coaching inn that lies on the ancient Barnstaple to London Road in the heart of Devon.

It retains a number of period features such as exposed stone walls and original fireplaces.

Amenities include a 30-seat restaurant, a 24-seat main bar, two skittle alleys (of which one doubles as a function room for up to 200 guests) and first-floor private accommodation with three bedrooms.

Outdoors facilities include a landscaped trade gardens, a covered smoking area and parking for up to 20 cars.

Stonesmith of Exeter sold the free-of-tie lease off an asking price of £79,950 on behalf of Peter Stanbury. The new owners, Sean Musto and his partner Helen Albert, both have some experience in the licensed or catering sectors.
