I had Sunday lunch with friends at this gem of a pub. I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere in the pub was fantastic and the service was excellent. There was a good range of real ales and wines available and the food was very good. There is a signed Arsenal shirt on the wall and while I was paying the... More

We went to this friendly relaxed restaurant as a large family group on a Sunday lunchtime. We all had the roast and the food was well cooked and plentiful. There were a large range of puddings though a few were no longer available. The sticky toffee pudding was lovely and the brownie sundaes went down very well too. The whole... More

When we arrived late due to terrible traffic and saw how busy it was we were worried we may have forfeited our table but the lovely lady who greeted us showed us straight to our table. The selection of drinks is extensive, there really is something to suit everyone. The food menu is lovely too, again with something to suit... More

We have been a few times now, when we visit our friends who live near by. Love the typically Devon village, it's picture perfect. The staff are always so helpful with the choice of meals, I have food intolerances and they went to great lengths to make sure my meal was ok for me. My friend had a steak which... More

Happened to pick a Weds lunch time and along with the normal menu there is an option of a roast meal. Delicious and tender beef, real roast potatoes and good selection of veg. Importantly good beers on tap and very attentive staff. The village is delightful as well with a nice square and the church is worth a visit.

I stayed for one night on 30th January 2017, at the Bell Inn, prior to a day's shooting nearby. The Bell Inn is ideally situated for anyone planning to shoot in the surrounding area or to go sightseeing. The owners of The Bell have been running the establishment for over 30 years. The food, both dinner and breakfast, and accommodation... More

The steak in this pub, is excellent. The beer in this pub, is so good, you want another. The staff are lovely, it's a nice part of the world, the locals are nice and they let dogs in. Proper fires, 2 pool tables, dart board.... It's a great pub. Go there.

Despite being Devonian..I had not been to Chittlehampton before...but we are glad we did!. We were meeting friends from North Devon for lunch...and this was mid-way between Chagford and Berrynarbor and thought worth a try based on previous reviews. We were warmly received and seated between two fires which was lovely on a bitter day. The beers were well kept... More
