“Number one in Devon”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Never mind it being regarded as no 2 in Crediton, I rate this as number one in Devon. Friendly atmosphere and the steak and ale pie is to die for. It's a real pie with real pastry, not the stew on a bowl with a crust added afterwards. Food is piping hot and all the portions are very generous indeed.
The landlady is hands on and everybody gets personal service
All pub/restaurants should aim for this quality

“Chips to die for.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

Great pub in a friendly village. Enormous portions and the chips are like nothing else. Love the fact you get a plate to share. Oh, and the London Inn wouldn't be the London Inn without the one and only Vera!

Delicious food, lovely big portions which is hard to find nowadays! This pub is family run and is so welcoming. We went on valentines night, you even got a rose. Brilliant country pub.

“Excellent Food, you wont find better”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

The food at the London Inn is superb, I have NEVER found a steak and ale pie better anywhere else and believe me I have tried loads. The chips are home made, not those nasty deep fried frozen ones you get in a lot of restaurants and pubs. You get so much food its a struggle to finish. The pub itself is very relaxed and calm a really nice atmosphere to sit and relax and enjoy your food. It has everything, excellent food, excellent value for money and once you have been once you will be returning over and over again.
