Have eaten here a few times and it's always been great. The welcome is always cheerful and happy and the staff are lovely. Had one of the best Sunday lunches there on Easter Sunday. Freshly cooked, and on lovely hot plates. Marvellous!

Quaint pub. Warm inside with very friendly staff and dog friendly, even had trivia games on the table for entertainment. Lots of veggie options and also vegan choices!! Couldn’t fault the food. Will definitely return!

Sharon and Richard welcome you to the Bull and Dragon. We are a small pub in the little village of Meeth about halfway between Okehampton and Torrington on the A386. We hope you will pop in and try some of our homemade food, which ranges from our ever-popular pies to Prawn and Pea Linguine via a range of classic pub food and a few interesting dishes we have picked up on our travels!
