Locals like to tell the story of Ronnie’s Shop, which Ronnie was fixing up to be a farm stand. During construction Ronnie’s friends played a prank on him by painting the word "sex" on his sign. Instead of a farm stand, he left the sign as it was and opened this pub.

It's an eye catching gimmick which makes Ronnie's a must stop location on the R62. Well worth a visit.

Very Interesting stop. It has a pub with lots of atmosphere. It's a bit weird though. There is a outside restaurant and a shop.

In the middle of "nowhere" - a nice pitstop - beers were ice cold, food whilst we did not eat looked more than adequate and facilities clean. Been there got the t-shirt would be a good summary.

I read the reviews on trip advisor and some were negative. I don't understand why? You have to take Ronnie's for what it is. It's not the Hilton but an interesting place to stop and have a quick toasted sandwich and a beer or a...More

Heard a lot about Ronnie's Sex Shop. Don't expect much in terms of entertainment. Rest Rooms were clean and tidy. Just stop to say "been there, done that"

There is nothing special about this place really at all. The decor of 'Ronnie's Sex Shop', which is essentially just a bar, is reminiscent of an old English perverts living room in London in the 1970's. With filthy carpet, furniture which has been marinated in...More

Hi Hannah O, unfortunately they do not offer accommodation. Your best bet is to stay in a nice B&B in Barrydale. Barrydale is a nice artistic town with good accommodation and restaurants.
