Looking for a local tipple? You’ve come to the right place.

We’ve got something for everyone at our well-stocked bar, which draws in crowds from Exeter, Exmouth, South Devon, and Dartmoor, alongside our loyal locals. 

Our delicious Real Ales include full-bodied Jale Ale from Dartmoor Brewery and the balance, slightly bitter flavour, with fruity, spicy aromas of Otter Ale from Devon’s Otter Brewery. And this is just for starters. 

Is it Gin you’re after? We’ve got over 80 varieties including our local favourites, Exmoor’s Wicked Wolf, Dartmoor’s Papillon, Exmouth’s Quick Gin and Devon’s Salcombe Gin.

If Cider is your drink, we’ve got you covered there too, with Somerset’s pride, Thatchers, as well as Craft Cider from Sandford Orchards, Devon. 

Our drinks list doesn’t end here. We’ve also got 25 Whiskies, 15 Rums, 15 Vodkas, and an expansive Wine collection. 

What’s more, while you’re at Cridford Inn, why not satisfy your tastebuds with some great British food too? 

Our spacious family restaurant is set within a converted cow barn at one end of our beautiful building. An additional ancient dining room sits at the other end, complete with a lover’s nook and wonderful, large social table seating up to 30 people. A perfect setting for any special occasion, or meeting with a large group of friends or colleagues. This part of the building is the oldest part and was built over 1,000 years ago!

We stayed overnight at this wonderful old Inn. We were in the “Exe” room which was charming. Beautifully decorated with a large modern bathroom. The owners Paul and Ness were lovely. They were welcoming and very knowledgeable about the history of the building and surrounding area. The bar and other staff were also really welcoming. We had a really enjoyable 2 course lunch for ten pounds each, excellent value and wonderful home cooked food. The breakfast was great too! We will certainly be back!

We had an excellent lunch in this delightful inn, which is packed full of character. Would definitely recommend a visit here. They have an amazing range of spirits and local ales. Although we did not stay overnight, the rooms look very comfortable and well equipped.
