The Church House Inn in Rattery, South Devon is an 11th-century building dating back to 1028, complete with ancient, blackened timber features throughout the original building.  In the 12th-century it would have been the dwelling occupied by the stonemasons who were building the stone church on the site of the previously wooden structure and the first ale would have been produced.

Owners John and Will wanted to adapt the building to increase their capacity and create a new restaurant that would be in keeping with the rest of the original longhouse, whilst offering a brighter, more open space.
