I am not at present intending on doing comprehensive research into the pubs in Harbledown, but during my research I have found reference to several pubs in the village, so have listed them in these pages.

As time allows and I find or are sent further information or pictures regarding this pub I will be adding further information to this page.

Your help is appreciated.
