Matthew, Hayleigh & Staff welcome you to our quintessential English Inn.
Nestled away in the picturesque Dartmoor village of Milton Combe lies the 16th century inn, The Who’d Have Thought It.
We are very fortunate to be running this unique, little pub in the heart of the Devon Countryside and hope you enjoy visiting us as much as we enjoy being here.
Dating back to the 1500’s “The Whody” has long been established as a local favourite with the charm and character it offers in abundance. Over the years the pub has also moved with the times and, although it retains a lot of its original features, sympathetic improvements have been made making the pub a favourite with visitors to the area.
Back in the 16th century the resident of what is now the pub decided to apply for a licence to sell alcohol. His fellow villagers were unconvinced that he would be granted the licence and for a while he was the talk of the village for his crazy idea. Shortly after he received a letter from the authorities acknowledging his application and, far more importantly, shortly after that he received another letter granting his application. On opening his letter and obviously in a state of shock he opened the front door, letter in hand and shouted out across the village “Who’d Have Thought It!” The rest is history and we are happy to be playing our part in adding to the story.
Thinking of staying with us? With your own separate entrance, you can hide yourselves away and visit many of the fabulous local sights.
