The Cridford Inn
“A charming inn that's been welcoming travellers for almost 1200 years.” - AA Inspector
NEWTON ABBOT, DEVON
Our Inspector's view
Dating back to 823AD, The Cridford Inn is the oldest pub in Devon and possibly in England, previously serving as a nunnery and a farm. Today it's still very much the local village inn and continues to welcome locals and visitors alike. A warm welcome is assured, so it's easy to relax here, either in the bar or outside on the sunny terrace. Food is not to be missed, as the exciting menu incorporates Asian influenced dishes alongside pub classics. The bar is stocked with local ales and a vast selection of gins and whiskies. The location is ideal for exploring the Teign Valley, such a lovely part of Devon, also close to Dartmoor National Park.

About the area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
