The Blue Ball Inn in Sidford has reopened after lockdown, with a ‘caretaker’ landlord in charge.
The inn, owned by Punch Pubs, closed in March at the beginning of lockdown.
It is now being run temporarily by Liam Potter from the nearby Balfour Arms, which is also a Punch Pubs property.
The company is looking to recruit someone to take over the pub permanently.
The Blue Ball is currently serving drinks, but no draught beer, and no food at this stage.

Mr Potter said he had worked hard to get the pub ready for reopening, and added: “It would be lovely to meet more of the local people.”
