Lovely cosy inn, serving great pizza. Relaxed atmosphere and family friendly. Lots of choice, good beer and the local made us all feel at home. Visited twice in one week while staying in a nearby village - our kids favourite place during our holiday.

I was dismayed to read this review and would like to take this opportunity to address the issues raised. Chulmleigh Fair was founded in 1253 when King Henry III granted the town a Royal Charter. It starts on the Tuesday at 6.30pm and continues all week with lots of family fun activities for all the community and visitors to enjoy... More

Really lovely pub, very comfortable room, fantastic cooked breakfast and great value. We stayed for 2 nights during a very cold spell in April but our room was lovely and warm. Staff were very welcoming and the breakfast was served downstairs in the pub's restaurant area. Would highly recommend.

I recently stayed for one week with my family at the Red Lion in Chulmleigh and we had a really enjoyable stay. Unlike many English pubs which still suffer from bad taste and variable food, the Red Lion has been done up with style and also serves great food. In particular, the Red Lion boasts that it probably serves the... More
