We were made very welcome by the staff and the pub had a great atmosphere. The menu was excellent and when our roasts came they were delicious as were the sweets. We will definitely eat there again.

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!
