Repairs following a fire at Hoops Inn.
A historic 13th century pub near Bideford was partially destroyed by fire. More than 100 firefighters from across three counties fought the blaze at the Hoops Inn at Horns Cross on March 23rd 2009.
The restoration works were carried out through April and May 2009 by local builders Riley & Guy and included re thatching much of the roof. Having asbestos removed by licensed contractors and creating fire walls within the attic space.
Dee and Gerry Goodwin have owned the Hoops Inn, which is listed in the 2009 Michelin Guide to Eating Out in Pubs, for the past five years, praised the efforts of all involved in these works.
