Keeping our staff and customers safe at The Cridford Inn

We have read the government guidelines, participated in hospitality industry webinars and consulted hospitality experts to ensure we are completely ready to keep all of our staff and customers safe when visiting The Cridford Inn. We are ready to welcome, entertain and share wonderful experiences again in our beautiful Inn.

As a team we have carried out a full risk assessment with the new focus of keeping that virus out of our Inn restricting the chances of any infection passing to anyone while keeping all the charm and atmosphere that makes The Cridford Inn our customers favourite place to eat, drink and socialise.

When planning your visit we need you to reserve a table even if you are just coming for drinks. We will plan each service so that everyone has plenty of space and are appropriately distanced from other guests. You can contact us and we will discuss your visit and reserve your table or you can book a table on our website.

When you arrive at the Inn we now have a door in and a door out. A one-way system. We will show you to your table and then serve you everything from there. For now there will be no standing at the bar.

We have a slide across vacant/engaged sign that you can flip across with your elbow on the toilet doors. There’s plenty of room in the hall way to wait for your turn.

We have new processes and systems in place to ensure that your table, cutlery, crockery, glasses, salt and pepper pots, in fact, everything is sanitised before you use it. From the sanitary conditions of the kitchen and the bar right through to bringing it to your table has been designed to prevent any contamination.

We take all our health and safety really seriously. We will make sure we play our part in keeping us all safe. When you visit please pay attention to the staff who will guide you and the signs that are there to help us all do our bit.

We can't wait to see you again.



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!

Fantastic family Sunday lunch. We ate here today as two families. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the food was lovely. Would definitely recommend this place.


Our hosts were very welcoming, helpful and made our 2 night stay more than pleasurable. The food is exceptional and there is a wide choice of beer, wine and spirits. Overall our stay was excellent and the atmosphere in this beamed establishment very relaxing, we will visit again for sure


What a lovely place to go, the new owners are absolutely delightful , Ness and Paul and they cannot do enough for you , the food is great too , I can especially recommend the Turbot absolutely scrummy . I hear they are doing Christmas lunch too if I’d not already paid a deposit elsewhere I’d be booking ! . Well done guys at last The Cridford feels loved and it’s clean too ! .


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.
