The Clifford Arms has not traded as a pub since 2019, and plans to convert the building into a residential dwelling have been proposed to Teignbridge District Council - although Shaldon Parish Council and local residents alike have objected to the application. As of yet, the application is still pending consideration.

The central entrance leads to the open plan bar and dining room, which has a wooden bar servery, a feature fireplace with an exposed stone surround, and part stripped wooden flooring, with space for 50 covers and access to customer toilets.

Heading down to the lower ground floor, the dining area offers space for 28 customers, and sits beside a full commercial catering kitchen.

Further steps lead down to the basement, which includes an office area and a beer cellar.

On the first floor is the owners’ accommodation, which has both internal access and separate access from outdoors.

The flat comprises a kitchen, a lounge, two bedrooms with fitted furniture and a bathroom.

Outside, there is a patio garden to the front, offering a cafe-style seating area, while to the rear is a decked beer garden.

The property is being sold by Vickery Holman Property Consultants for offers in excess of £685,000.

The agent described the restaurant as “a Georgian style terraced property with the accommodation over the basement, lower ground, ground and first floors.

“Subject to considerable improvement by our clients, the trade areas provide for 78 internal covers, with additional outside seating areas to both front and rear.

“In addition there is a self contained two-bedroom flat and useful parking space.”
