Sunday Lunch
Welcome to The Cridford Inn...Possibly the Oldest...Certainly the most Charming!
Dating back to 825AD The Cridford Inn is a charming 1,000 year old Devon longhouse that has kept its character. This delightful free-house is family run by Paul & Ness with Sean heading up the kitchen. Our food is the best locally sourced ingredients we can find lovingly prepared in our kitchen by a team of passionate, talented chefs. Our well kept local Ales, interesting wines and extensive range of spirits (especially our 80 different Gins) make relaxing in our dog friendly bar with log burning fires a pleasure. Our stunning dining room makes you feel like you have stepped back in time (or entered the set of Game of Thrones) We can host parties and special events, speak to Ness or Paul for more information.

The fish pie was missing and the fillet steak was overpriced for the quality

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback Sue. I am sorry your visit did not live up to your expectation. Our steaks are usually highly praised, I'm so sorry yours wasn't. I would love the opportunity to make it up to you and hopefully demonstrate your disappointing experience was a rare one off.

Was staying close to the Cridford Inn whilst on a family holiday - what a gem this place is! We ate there 3 nights, and two of our men folk escaped for a drink on another evening. All food was stunning and served piping hot. Very reasonably priced for such high quality. The staff were very welcoming. Dog & kid friendly too. The building, being so old, is breathtaking - so many original features. All furniture and decor is sympathetic to the age of the rooms. Will definitely visit the area again, some 280 miles from home, just to be able to return to the warmth and ambience of The Cridford.

Was planning on going to the nobody inn but saw on their website that they were suggesting the cridford inn so we tried them instead. Whole experience was spot on so would recommend it :-)

Have eaten here 3 or 4 times now and will certainly be back. Food is great value and high quality. Menus change regularly and always seem to have one of my favourites on. Great friendly service and charming pub.

As fans of the Nobody Inn, we were excited to stop by the sister pub but unfortunately it has a way to go. Understandable seeing as the new owners only took it over 8 months ago after 5 years of running down. However, we found the eating areas dark and uninspiring and the outside overlooking the car park a shame for a sunny day. The food was disappointing especially the incredibly garlicky houmous - not houmous - ordered for our daughter and far too garlicky for a 7 year to cope with. Looking to all the amazing gastro pubs and restaurants with rooms we have in the UK (the owners would do well to pay a visit to the Independent Hotel / Pub Show for inspiration) along with the rise in boutique hotels, there is a tonne of great examples and customer choice out there from which The Chidford could take note.
