New London owner for Devon roadside inn

The Forces Tavern, a 16th century roadside inn near Blackawton in South Devon, has a new owner.

Rob King from London has bought the freehouse in the South Hams district, which fronts the main Dartmouth-to-Kingsbridge road and is near the Woodlands Leisure Park which draws in 400,000 visitors each year.

The property, which has built up a reputation for its home-cooked food, has seating for 64 customers across its public bar with open fireplace and 32-seat dining room and lounge bar.

The first floor houses extensive two-bedroom owners' accommodation along with two recently-created en-suite letting bedrooms.

The Plymouth office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off a guide price of £435,000 on behalf of Mike and Michelle Lickfold.
