A traditional country pub set in a peaceful courtyard surrounded by North Devon countryside, serving an excellent range of local & regional ales, craft beer, spirits and wines. Our small but comprehensive menu offers a variety of classic pub dishes with a twist, "old school" bar baskets, and an ever changing specials board of modern cuisine. A friendly welcome awaits at The Cranford Inn. **PLEASE NOTE. Unfortunately we do not allow dogs inside
