About
South Devon CAMRA Pub of the Year 2015 & 2018 and Cider Pub of the Year 2019. We're a 17th C inn in the pretty village of Bridford, high in the Teign Valley. The pub was originally a Devon farmhouse and retains all the character & charm with exposed beams, stone walls & a large inglenook fire-place with a log burner and original bread oven. We allegedly have the widest bar in the south west and our south facing beer garden looks across the beautiful Dartmoor countryside - perfect for the summer months. We stock a range of local and national cask ales (We're in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide), malt whisky & popular wines. Check out our Cider & Scrumpy bar with a selection of real ciders to try and

We eat here most weeks on a Sunday Lunch. No where betters it. I could explain the lovely potatoes, lashings of tender beef, roasted parsnips, side of cauliflower cheese and side of mixed veg. With a massive homemade yorkie and pan gravy. It is phenomenal....ReallyMore

We tried this pub/restaurant last night with kids in tow. Fantastic is the only way to describe the landlord and the welcome. We had Rump steak with all the trimmings it was excellent , we both said was the best steak we had eaten out...in years. Generous portions , we just about managed to squeeze a shared pudding in… lovely atmosphere would highly recommend great selection of ciders/beers /ales and very child friendly . So good we are going back….totally deserves no 1 spot you must try this placeMore

Hi poppys247 What a lovely review, thank you. I’m glad it was worth the uphill walk and at least it was downhill on the way back. We hope you enjoyed your weekend. Kind regards Lyn & Dean

We booked the day before following a recommendation from the cottage we are staying at. Landlord was very helpful and fitted us in despite being busy. We walked there and worked up our appetite... well nothing disappointed! A great warm welcome, absolutely delicious, beef was...local cooked to perfection and veg local, fresh and tasty. Yorkies just like Nan used to make them! Service was charming, right balance of chat and letting us enjoy our meal. A brilliant Sunday lunch and well worth the very steep uphill walk. Thank you!

We were greeted on arrival like we were locals and immediately felt at ease . The owner came outside to take our order within minutes and chatted about the different wines available. There were two tables seated outside near us with locals . They were...all so friendly and welcoming ! We soaked in the atmosphere and the glorious views and around 10 minutes later the food arrived. Ribeye steak cooked to perfection, a lovely Thai green curry . A special mention for the chips ! Now,I’m fussy about chips and these are the best I’ve had in a pub/restaurant for years . We had a wonderful evening and will be returning as soon we can . A slice of heaven in Devon !More

I received a friendly welcome on arrival and enjoyed a fine pint of local cider sitting in the beer garden enjoying the sunshine and the view. After an interesting chat with some of the locals I had ham egg and chips which was superb as...usual, washed down by another different cider from Sandford Orchards. After lunch I walked back to Steps Bridge to catch my bus back. I will try not to leave it song long before my next walking visit here!More
