“As Jeremy says, this isn't a beer destination but it has got a lot of history which is handily documented in some detail in a small out-building behind the pub itself. Built in 1690 by George Ley, an avid card-player whose family owned much of the land nearby, to replicate a house of cards. It has four floors representing the four suits, with 13 doors and fireplaces on each floor equaling the number of cards in each suit, and fifty-two stairs. All the windows add up to the total value of a pack of cards. Fascinating place, even more so that it was built in the 1600s. Unfortunately left to ruin for a number of years in the 90s, but thankfully restored well, with a good sized beer garden we took advantage of. Expect a few local cask beers, a couple of Sandford Orchard cider bottles, but nothing else of note.“

“Visited on 17th July 2018. Added this place because it's interesting and different; not because of the beer selection. Three cask handpumps on my visit, Tribute, Doombar and Exmoor Gold being the choices. Usual keg lines and bottles. It's interesting and different because it is built like a deck of cards and was built from the winnings of a card game. There is a small 'outhouse' that holds a picture history of the place as well as a Skittle Alley. Multi roomed, lovely gardens and dog friendly. If you are in this part of North Devon it is well worth the effort of visiting, even if you don't get a new rate like me.“
