We found this pub by accident and we were only sorry we did not find it earlier in our stay. Excellent customer service and we loved meeting Yogi. Very dog friendly which is fantastic. The fish and chips were amazing. Two huge bits of fish in a light and crunchy, almost tempura, batter. Hubby had the chocolate brownie which was... More

Good: The meal was huge Bad: The waitress was grumpy and rude (not to us, thankfully). The food was simply awful. Two of us had a Sunday roast that came with a giant Yorkshire Pudding which was chewy and tasteless. The meat was tough and fatty, the veg either under or overcooked, the roast potatoes were slightly rubbery. The other... More

Dear Antimaps Thank you for your review. We are really upset to read your comments of your meals and the waitress and sincerely apologise for your experience. The produce we purchase is of the highest quality and we had not had any complaints the day you had your meals on the meat or vegetables, nor the Tagliatelle. When we ask... More

We had a lovely meal at the Muddiford Inn, having just got a new puppy were worried about where we could eat. Luckily we stumbled across the Muddiford Inn who could not have been more welcoming and friendly in accommodating us. The food was delicious and good value for money. We will definitely be back and will recommend to others.... More

We stopped by at the Muddiford Inn for our first visit with our 2 Dalmatians, Bertie and Charlie. We couldn't have received a more friendly welcome from the bar man who showed us to a table in the lovely large garden around the back of the Inn, or from Pearl, who is just lovely. We had superb service and excellent... More

We found the Muddiford Inn as a recommendation in our self catering guest book and went there one evening after initially having decided to go further afield. So glad we didn't. We had such a fantastic meal at the Muddiford Inn that we went back there a couple of days later and it was just as good. The food was... More

Ok, so the major flaw with this restaurant was......my fault, because I didn't book! We visited here on the off chance and although they did everything to try and fit us in, they simply just couldn't as they were already bursting at the seams. I soon made amends and booked for the night after. In fact the kids didn't mind... More
