4/93 The Royal Oak Public House
Public house. Circa late C17. Whitewashed and rendered; thatched roof, hipped at
right end; left end gabled with stone stack with stone shaft partly rebuilt in brick,
axial stack with brick shaft, late C19 or later rear lateral stack.
The late C17 plan appears to have been single depth, 2 rooms wide with a hall/kitchen
at the left end and a smaller lower end room which may originally have been unheated.
The late C17 stair was adjacent to the hall/kitchen stack. The position of the
original doorway is not clear. Later rear additions. Alterations, probably of the
C20 have included the removal of most of the cross wall between the principal and
lower end rooms and is probably the insertion of the lower end stack.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front, the right hand corner of the building
rounded and the eaves thatch eyebrowed over the first floor small pane casements.
Front door to left of centre flanked by 3-light casements, 3 panes per light with
shutters, similar 2-light casement to ground floor right.
Interior The hall, to the left, has a large open fireplace with stone jambs and a
chamfered timber lintel with scroll stops. A rounded wall to the right of the stack
indicates the position of the former stair. Exposed cross beams and joists. The
first floor room over the hall has a fireplace with stone jambs and a chamfered
lintel with scroll stops. No access to roofspace at time of survey (1986) but late
C17 trusses likely to survive. The Royal Oak is an a prominent corner site in Ideford
