Description: The Crealock Arms in Littleham is the epitomy of an English country pub in a beautiful North Devon setting, yet just 10 minutes drive from the town of Bideford. The traditional family-run pub enjoys magnificent country views – from its large beer garden you can see three local church towers! Named after a 19th century village squire and landowner, The Crealock was created from a former farmhouse and opened as a pub in 1977 by members of the farm’s Nicholls family, who have lived there for more than 100 years. Today it is run by Clare and Rick Morgan. Clare is the grand-daughter of its founders and the couple’s two young children are the family’s seventh generation to live on the site. The Crealock it is at the heart of the village community, a meeting place for the locals and venue for events, as well as a favourite with diners and an ideal place to take the family.

Popped in for a lunch on Fri 6th June, nice looking place in a little Devon village, good parking and staff & owner very welcoming even though they were really busy and seemed a little understaffed the had time for a little welcoming chat with new arrivals. Quite a large pub menu and a blackboard with a lunch menu which has a good choice of home made traditional food, liver onion and bacon lovely and served with 4 different veg plus potatoes and a very tasty gravy. Some nice local real ales, well worth a visit and will definitely go back

We tried The Crealock Arms, having read great reviews on Tripadvisor, and were not disappointed. There is an extensive menu with the usual scampi, pies etc and an amazing specials board including meals such as minted lamb chops and braised beef with dumpling. All the food even down to the puddings are homemade and truly delicious.
We like to try different places to eat every time but the food was so good we ate there three times in one week whilst on holiday!
The staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming too.
If you want a fancy plate of food that would fit on a saucer this is not the place for you but if you want really good, honest, tasty food at a good price then you will struggle to find anywhere better.

Just had a week in Devon and my parents were staying down the road from the Crealock Arms. We all met there for a meal(10of us) and couldn't fault the place. Good portions, all really tasty and very reasonably priced. The specials board is definitely worth a look! The Rattler cider was also spot on. Very welcoming place,must be good as we all ate there 3 times in total.
