A Lympstone pub, which closed earlier this year, could reopen its doors again under new owners - and a with first floor restaurant. The 16th Century Redwing Inn, Church Road, closed in May, but was bought by a local family, James and Simon Robshaw, to prevent it being bought and redeveloped for housing.The family has now applied for planning permission to demolish part of a rear extension and garage, rebuild an enlarged rear extension and garage, and to have a new restaurant on the first floor.The new owners have said in their application to East Devon District Council there would be relatively small changes to the appearance of the free house. They are hoping to create employment in the village as well as retain the historic use of the building.The owners said on their website: "The pub and restaurant will be preserved, and residents will be pleased to learn that potential development of new dwellings by the previous owners is not being pursued. "One of the reasons in securing the site was to stop the over-development and the loss of this asset to the village.
