First time in a while that I've visited The Muddiford Inn, wasn't disappointed!! The food was outstanding!! Beautiful homemade crab cakes for starter and the 'Proper Burger' for mains!! Could not fault it. Two young ladies on service were brilliant, polite and didn't rush us. Thank you for a great night, look forward to going back again 👍🏻

Visited the restaurant on Thursday as it was fish and chip night. Varied choice of fish available. Good portion of haddock and whitebait which was very well cooked and delicious as were the chips. Friendly efficient service.

We called in for a lunchtime light nibble and ended up eating the Sliders as they was too tempting, they were absolutely delicious, the chips were just as we love them, hand cut and crispy on the outside, we had cheese added on top and it was just melted... yummy. The Garlic Mushroom starter was also lovely. The staff were... More

Really didn't want to write a bad review about this place as I have eaten here previously and very much enjoyed the food so not quite sure what's gone wrong maybe a new chef? unfortunately after trying their Sunday roast today I cannot see us going back. Very very bland roast potatoes tasted awful and left me feeling sick it... More

Had a great meal ,after watching the fireworks. I have visited this pub every year since 1983, and have to say this is the best I have ever known it. The owners are friendly and it goes with out saying that the locals are also friendly and very welcoming.

Average, slightly over-cooked pub food with a slightly higher than average price. Totally underwhelmed and quite disappointed. The atmosphere was not improved by the presence of a large number of local hunt members who's language was quite inappropriate for a family pub. I personally don't mind swearing at all but repeatedly using the 'C' word in a family pub without... More
