A little pub history

Originally called Heanton Court, The Braunton Inn was an ancient manor house for distinguished families descended from King Edward IV. During the 19th Century, the great house began to be let out to farmers, its castellated towers making it one of the grandest farmhouses in North Devon. In the 1930's, pleasure flights to Lundy Island would land in the grounds.

Make a day of it

With its imposing high stone walls and crenulations, there are few pubs grander than The Braunton Inn. We have fantastic views and walkers will be drawn to the Tarka Trail by the River Taw.
