Our family has been holiday in the Okehampton for the last few years and this isthe family favourite. Sharon is always charming and very attentive and the freshly cooked food is always tasty. The Malteser Sundae remains the favourite dessert. A lovely place for dinner but make sure to book! (sorry a very late summer review!)

Wow what a welcome this was after our cycle down the Tarka trail from Great Torrington. We were warned there was a wait for food, but we were more than happy to wait as the rest was well needed. The lady behind the bar was lovely and looked after the very busy bar, single handedly very well. The Pie was... More

We stopped at the Bull & Dragon early evening en-route from Dartmoor to North Devon and we were not disappointed. It's a proper village pub and felt that way - I suspect that passing trade is a bonus for them - but the landlady made us very welcome and we got comfortable near the open-fireplace. It was explained that food... More

Visited after a lovely walk around meeth quarry. The welcome from the lady was lovely and she really was ever so polite and welcoming. We only had a couple of drinks and sat out in the sunshine, however, we would definitely return for a meal in the future as the pub looked great inside and the service was equally as... More

Meeth has to be the tiniest village in Devon that still has a pub and a very good pub too! We came on a recommendation having driven past many times and thought "what a nice pub" without ever actually stopping. The menu on the night included a thai steak dish called "weeping tiger", a seafood pasta dish and vegetarian curry... More

We arrived on bikes from the Tarka Trail , we had hired bikes from puffing Billy's at Torrington. So after 11 miles we where ready for a warm welcome.

Thank you for your review. I apologise if there was a misunderstanding, we had no intention of not serving you but were just trying to explain that there was a party of seven in front of you and, until we had their order, I couldn't say how long your wait would be.

We wanted a late lunch, before an afternoon dog walk. The staff were very friendly & the menu was extensive, they even brought water over for our dog. The locals were welcoming. We can recommend. Located close to lots of lovely walks, in a pretty area. Generous portions, served with a smile.

What a lovely quaint village pub. Staff were so friendly and the food was excellent. We had starters and mains, no room for desert. My husband had one of the best pub steaks in a long time and I had the signature Bull & Dragon Pies - so tasty. This is a pub that makes you want to come back... More

We were staying in Meeth and decided to try the Bull and Dragon. Felt very welcome when entering the pub and staff very friendly. Excellent food with lots of choice I had the pie and the meat was delicious. Will certainly come again when in the area.

Description
Sharon and Richard welcome you to the Bull and Dragon. We are a small pub in the little village of Meeth about halfway between Okehampton and Torrington on the A386. We hope you will pop in and try some of our homemade food, which ranges from our ever-popular pies to Prawn and Pea Linguine via a range of classic pub food and a few interesting dishes we have picked up on our travels!
