Privately owned ex-Lacons inn and restaurant on the outskirts of town, which has been under new ownership since November 2021 and re-opened for Easter 2022. As of July 2019 a campsite has been available at the rear of the pub with hard standing touring caravan pitches and some grass camping pitches. The venue is adults only so no children under 14 years of age are allowed in the pub or on the camp site.

In the December 1984 edition of Last Orders*** it was reported that the pub name relates to a tale of a lawyer, a parson and a doctor gathered around a dying man. The lawyer pleas for the man's money, the parson for his soul and the doctor for his body. Behind the scene is the devil armed with his trident (or pitch-fork) patiently waiting for the result of the debate as he intends to collect whatever the result (and probably find a use for the fork!) This story may be found depicted in a picture inside the pub. [It also appears today on the pub sign.]
