We went here one lunchtime for food with my family and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Unlike other recent reviewers we had no problem with having the fixed price menu at lunchtime and the service was helpful and friendly allowing us to enjoy the food in a relaxed atmosphere. Although there weren't many people (it was Feb lunchtime) when we first... More

It's always a bit of a sinking feeling when you pull into a pub car park, at peak time on a Friday lunchtime, only to find one other car parked there. We had selected the Cridford because it used to enjoy a good reputation (admittedly a long time ago), and they were offering a 2 courses for £9 deal. On... More

Found via TripAdvisor euroute to Cornwall. Stopped for lunch and so glad we did. A delightful restaurant in deepest Devon with superb character and excellent food. If you don't go there you've missed an example of the best of English cooking. Well be back!

We stumbled across this Inn while driving through the high-hedged lanes of Devon, feeling hungry for lunch; and weren't we lucky! A small but very good menu, friendly, professional staff and good food. The beef cobbler, a huge portion topped with four, miniature savoury scones, came with more nicely roasted potatoes than we could eat and a separate dish of... More

We recently had our children christened in the church nearby. We would like to thank Ian and Tracey for a wonderful evening at The Cridford Inn. Everyone commented on the fantastic buffet. Many thanks for all your hard work and for making the day so special.

Fourteen of us arrived there yesterday afternoon to celebrate my son's 30th birthday. The table looked beautiful, the food was excellent and the service was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for our waitress Mel (who had also decorated the table). The chef went the extra mile and provided me with different veg (as I'm a bit fussy), which I... More

After a long day working and driving I booked a family room, & travelled out of my way to get a comfortable room. On arrival had to wait for staff, firstly to serve a customer drinks, then joining in a conversation at the bar, before even greeting me. Was then shown to a small room, with an explanation that another... More

Thank you for your review. Although it was a while ago that you stayed ,I can tell you that improvements have been made to people having to leave before 9am.This is a pub with 4 rooms ,not a hotel and so we cannot offer breakfast before 9am ,and we do stipulate this on our website and booking. com. We now... More

We recently stayed at the Cridford Inn for four nights to celebrate my husband's birthday. The people working there were helpful and friendly and made us feel really welcome. Having mentioned at breakfast (a lovely choice all freshly prepared) that it was his birthday, Mel went out of her way to arrange a card and balloons that were on our... More

If you run a pub in the country where people have to drive to visit you, have the courtesy to be there to welcome them-we had to call to be served and even then it took some time. Having ordered our food, it would have been nice to have a degree of conversation during the long pause before the food... More

Thanks for the review. On the lunch that you came I was still cleaning rooms ,which is why there is a bell on the bar with a gold sign that says ring for attention, when the bell is rung I immediately will run to the bar from my cleaning duties. We have lunchtimes when we don't have any customers at... More

Visiting from australia and stayed at the Cridford for 2 nights while exploring the Devon coastal areas. I was very impressed with the historic inn and the care and love the owners have put into retaining its charm. The rooms were clean, well presented, spacious and comfortable. Tea and coffee provided in our room with bottled water and little extras... More
