I haven't been there for a few years & not disappointed. My friend had her Birthday party there with around 26 of us, service was swift & professional. The food was amazing & everyone enjoyed the meals they ordered. Personally, mine was fantastic so compliments to the chef!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant & will be back again soon. Thank you to all the staff who made our evening enjoyable, great atmosphere & wonderful time had!!

This restaurant/pub is found on a country road near Barnstaple but it is worth trying to find it!! It has a very quirky feel about it but the food was magnicent! I had homemade broccoli and stilton soup and the Bacon and Brie sandwiches which were delicious - thick granary bead with masses of filling. Looking at other guests lunches we wished we had visited at dinner time too! The owners were very welcoming and entertained us with ghostly stories at this old restaurant. Overall a wonderful independant restaurant and pub, delicious food at good prices with plenty of parking opposite.

Dear Chris
It has just come to my attention that my reply to your review was posted privately and not posted via the Management Response, for which I sincerely apologise.
I again want to thank you for your most excellent review of your visit to The Muddiford Inn. We are pleased that you all enjoyed your meals and visit - and the Ghost stories – not hostile ghosts but very friendly!
Also thank you for taking the time and trouble to post to Trip Advisor; your comments about The Inn are welcome.
We hope your return to London as enjoyable and if ever you are this way again we would be delighted to welcome you.
Kind regards
THE MUDDIFORD INN

If you are a regular user of restaurants and also used to judging them from reports on Trip Advisor, you probably do not need more reports to tell you what to expect here. In the many reviews, check out how often the quantity of food is referred to. The staff are friendly; the restaurant is entirely un-intimidating (good); the pricing is reasonable and there is a great emphasis on home cooking. But, do not confuse the Muddiford Inn with a gastro-pub. It knows what makes its customers happy and it appears to succeed very well.

Dear DPJP
We are very pleased to read your very kind review of your experience at The Muddiford Inn. As you so rightly observe, ‘home cooking’ is important to us. All our meals are freshly prepared and cooked as ordered. Our Chef has a passion for food and says “You eat with your eyes” and insists every meal, be it a sandwich or Bar Meal or A la Carte , has to go to the table perfectly presented.
Thank you sincerely for taking the time and trouble to write to Trip Advisor. We are pleased to have been awarded Trip Advisor’s ‘Certificate of Excellence’ again and we feel it is all due to customers such as yourselves who help us gain this achievement, of which we are proud. We look forward to welcoming you when you next decide to visit from Plymouth.
Kind regards

Hubby and I ventured to this pub for a spot of lunch as we had read the reviews .... The huge bear type dog was there with a friendly wag as described!! Then on ordering a sandwich each and a drink decided to venture to the garden....!!! It's massive! A huge playhouse with kids ride on toys, see saw and scooters available for the kids to play with whilst mum and dad listen to the peaceful stream trickling by. There is also a chicken coup so if the kids want to have a look they are free to do so, the garden is so big we couldn't see the end if it!! Then came the sarnie... I ordered the steakwich.. Cooked to perfection, but please be advised- go hungry!! It also arrived with a dressed, mixed side salad AND wire basket of chunky cut home style triple cooked chips!!!! And was all to die for... The gent at the opposite table ordered the prawn sarnie, and was that big it should have been delivered by wheelbarrow!! Both the owners made a point if talking to everyone there, and were very courteous and friendly...I will definitely be returning with the kids next time, as I am truly amazed to find such a great homely place so close to us in North Devon which has freshly prepared food which is certainly value for money xx thank you

Thank you for your excellent review of The Muddiford Inn. It is very pleasant to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your visit and meals. It is nice for us to have local folk call as well as visitors from further afield. We aim to please with all of our food which is freshly prepared and cooked as it is ordered.
We will be delighted to welcome you both with the children the next time you are in the area and we are confident that Yogi, our Newfoundland, will also show his welcome to you all and wag his tail. Thank you again.
