History of the Passage House Inn pub
This 18th Century country pub is in the hamlet of Hackney, near Newton Abbot, and is named after the type of fishing nets used in this area of the Estuary. The hamlet consisted of the pub and a number of cottages which where the homes of the Bargees who worked the connecting canals. The cottages are now derelict leaving the Inn on its own.

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.
