A Cozy Pub In Devon

The Half Moon is the longest established inn in the parish of Clayhidon. The first records show a licence was granted to Thomas Salter in 1787. Next to St Andrews church, it was probably built originally as a cottage for stone masons to live in while they built the church in the 13th Century, and this ecclesiastical connection has continued in a totally unique way.

At some stage two cottages were converted into one. But the original path between them is still a church right of way into St Andrews. The open archway was covered in during the 1850’s so a function room could be built across it, but until 1917 the pathway through the arch was the only way to the church.
