Popped into this unique historic and timeless, pub on this pleasant cold but sunny day. This allowed sampling of the real ale as well as warming up in a cosy corner, while watching and enjoying the splendid smart wood burning stove. It was too cool to sit out on the tables by the river, but something to come back for... More

Great unspoilt pub with loads of history..a no nonsense pub having been in the same family for some years. Have never eaten here as for us it is more of a watering hole to meet up with friends but the beer is always well kept. The opening/closing times are rather regimented but good luck to them, this is a blast... More

This was an experience to remember. We loved this charming family-run cosy and authentic pub with tables outside overlooking the river. It was so nice to be in a real historic pub that hasn't been refurbished in the same fashion as every other pub in the country. (Pubs all seem the same now and often have lost some of their... More

Ancient, simple, wonderful. Hadn't been for 30 years and was worried that it might have changed. Not a chance.

I recently attended a folk music function in The Malt House at the Bridge Inn. The room has real old world atmosphere and the pub is perfectly located on the bank of the River Clyst. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. Beer was excellent. Music was very enjoyable and atmosphere very enjoyable. A great evening.

I believe this pub has been likened to a museum but it feels more alive than that and my beer was in beautiful condition, worth going out of your way for.

Very varied beers and ciders on offer, very knowledgeable staff. Great location by the river, overlooking the flood plains, just outside Topsham. Whenever I'm in town I come here, I love it so much. Nothing more I can say!
