The Muddiford Inn is off the beaten track but well worth the visit. They are decorated for Christmas and the decor is like the food, well thought out. We had Sunday lunch, the portions are huge and presentation lovely. Mum had the beef and it was bigger than she could manage, but she loved it. I am a veggie and... More

I have always wondered what would drive a person to write a review of a restaurant, the thinking being its a simple transaction of sitting, eating, paying and forgetting but I couldn't let this experience go untold for some reason. From the moment we stepped from the car we both commented on the wonderful and welcoming appearance of the inn.... More

Haven`t been here for many years. The bar area was quiet which was disappointing as I feel it adds to the ambience. It was early afternoon and perhaps the rush was over. On the plus side the real ale was excellent and the Merlot served up was perfect. The roast dinners served were the best our four hungry mouths could... More

We stayed up the road over half term week this October, and called in for a meal the last evening when we were too tired from walking to cook. Much smarter inside than out, more of a restaurant feel than a pub, though I'm sure the seating outside is nice in the summer. Warm welcome, portions were plentiful and food... More

I live in Barnstaple but had never visited the Muddiford Inn until last month. I'd started to hear a lot of very good things about it so a group of 4 of us decided to check for ourselves. We were not disappointed. We had a warm welcome and despite the pub being fully booked we were allocated a nice large... More

We visited on Saturday night as a last minute decision. My daughter and I both had the fish and chips which was very well cooked and well presented. Having sampled fish and chips at various venues around North Devon I must say that in my experience the quality and taste at the Muddiford is unequalled. My wife had the sea... More

We visited this restaurant on the last day of our holiday. We wish it had been the first day. Eight people all had different meals and not one complaint. The presentation was next to none, the food absolutely fantastic . The portions were very large so sadly couldn't try the sweets. A must for anyone in the area.
