The Hack and Spade was founded as far as we know in 1806.
Originally called Oddfellows, back then it would have been a tiny two up two down Georgian ale house.
Later in 1846 it was extended and re named The Hack and Spade after the quarries that had opened up around the Holmedale area - a Hack being a small pick used in the quarries.
Then becoming a parlour pub and in the 1960's and 70's, it even had a shop.
In later years became a restaurant and in 2012 after renovation and refurbishment became the Bed and Breakfast it is today.
