The Passage House Inn
Passage House Inn
The present Inn was built in 1761, however, there has been a country pub or inn on the site since pre-Roman times. It is situated at the site of what was once a tidal ford across the River Teign; this was the passage way across the river, giving rise to the name the Passage House. This ford was extensively used by the clergy on their travels between Bishopsteignton and Torre Abbey and if the ford was not conducive to an expedient crossing the earlier buildings would have provided a hostelry for food and wine. The travellers could then remain in comfort until the tide had turned and it was safe to cross.
