This is a good local pub/restaurant with an area in the bar where you can take your dog, which is a plus for us. There is a good selection of beers and food, all good quality, with friendly service, now we live in the area, we will definitely be visiting again.

Pre-ordered dinner for a large party - booked 7.00 for 7.30 - we began to wonder whether the food was being shipped in from Exeter. Eventually fed around 9.00 - then asked if we would like the sweet menu around 10.30. What a joke. We had all gone especially to support and enjoy the band playing that night - but... More

I had heard of the Clifford Arms' sterling reputation during an earlier trip to the South West, told with such sincerity and affection, that I placed this charming little pub high on my 'Must Visit' list and I would urge you to do the same. This is a real gem of a pub, the beating heart of Shaldon, a charming... More

We were visiting Teignmouth for a week for my 60th Birthday and saw that Monday Night was Jazz Night but unfortunately they were fully booked so did not eat there on the Monday.

My friends and I turned up here on Monday for a meal. Unfortunately they were busy due to a jazz night. They found us a table, we had great food (from a set menu- jazz night only) and really great staff. Would highly recommend

Great pub/restaurant. You can tell this everything is freshly made (which means there is a little wait but that doesn't matter for good food!!) the staff are fantastic and friendly. There are a wide range of beers, Gins etc to keep you busy for multiple visits too. If in Shaldon it is a must visit!

Lovely interior, above average pub food - especially fish and first class range of beers. Staff were extremely welcoming.

Had lunch during Regatta Week which was pretty hectic in Shaldon. We had not visited the Clifford Arms before but what a find!! The garden at the rear was stunning & only matched by the food!!

We went for a meal on a Sunday evening. Food very expensive for what it was. Fish was rubbery and tasteless. Service quite slow, this wouldn't have mattered had the food lived up to the £15.95 price tag. I would avoid.
