A Little Bit of History

The pub is named for the Clifford family.  The Hon. Thomas Clifford  (1732-1787) married The Hon. Barbera Aston, heiress to the Tixall Estate, in 1762. Although Tixall Hall was demolished in 1927, Tixall Gatehouse still stands and can be rented for self-catering holidays. Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned for a short time at Tixall in an effort to prevent her rescue from Chartley as part of the Babington Plot.

Thomas was descended from the  Baron’s Clifford of Chudleigh which perhaps explains why there is another Clifford Arms pub in Devon.
