New owners for Ipplepen inn

The Plough Inn at Ipplepen in Devon has been bought by Glynis Whitby and Anna Hill, who have a background in the licensed and catering trades.

The substantial mid-terraced property near Newton Abbot incorporates a single-storey roof extension to rear and a conservatory-style dining area.

It accommodates a 24-seat main bar leading to a 24-seat upper level, a six seat snug, a 20-seat dining room, and outside trade areas to the front and rear.

Private accommodation is provided on the first floor in the form of three bedrooms (one en-suite) and a lounge, kitchen and bathroom.

The new owners have reopened the refurbished inn as a traditional locals pub serving home-cooked, locally-sourced meals which include lunchtime bar snacks, evening meals, Sunday roasts and an OAP's Friday special.

They plan to bring in themed food evenings and wine tasting nights, live music and charity events and to begin catering for small functions such as weddings, parties and local society meetings.

Other developments include the construction of an outside smoking gazebo and plans to landscape the outside areas to provide al fresco dining with a barbecue/spit roast.

Stonesmith of Exeter sold the leasehold of a guide price of £65,000 on behalf of Sue and Colin Smart.
