THE historic Anchor Inn at Exebridge, which is mentioned in R.D. Blackmore's famous novel, Lorna Doone, has been sold.

The former 17th century coaching inn, with a lovely riverside location, stands beside an old packhorse bridge and has large riverside gardens and fishing rights on the River Exe.

The inn is well known for its six en suite letting bedrooms and the Riverside Restaurant, which provides an array of chef-inspired, home-cooked food and doubles as a useful function room.

Christie and Co sold the property off an asking price of �90,000 for the ingoing leasehold premium in addition to stock at valuation. The freeholder is the pub company Greene King, which set up a 15-year lease in 2007 with a current passing rent of �56,000 per annum.
