This remote country pub inhabiting a many centuries old building is worth the drive. The Cornish ale on cask was excellent, and but for drink driving laws I would have put a bigger dent in their supply. My wife ordered the fish and chips, I had a Chinese crispy pork and the kids had nachos. The pork dish could have... More

We had a lovely meal here. The huge garden is great for little ones to run around in. The reason a didn't give 5 stars is there was a couple of errors made with the meal but these were resolved straight away with no fuss. Also the menu at lunch is limited which was a shame as my husband and... More

We were just passing on our way to Barnstaple and decided to pop in for drink. One thing led to another and before we knew it we were sitting down to a meal. How glad, however, were we to have paused our journey here! The food was excellent and the staff just couldn't do enough for you. Would recommend to... More

Truly a cracking Sunday roast. Crackling was spot on. Loads on the plate. Good table service. Very clean and tidy. As a sweet I have the ceme brûlée on advice from the chef. It's was so good. Look forward to a return visit soon Thanks all

Dinner this evening at Muddiford and the chance to enjoy their "proper pie". Today's pie was Chicken and Bacon which, when served with some excellent chips and veg made the perfect meal. So filling we only managed coffee to follow but moved high up our list of places to go whenever we get the chance.

Late evening meal on a Friday, very nice! Nachos with pulled pork and fish pie were excellent! Daily specials and great ale/wine selection. Fab local pub to North Devon :)

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.
