Came here with my wife, daughter and dog as part of a Devon break, looking for somewhere to eat. We went for calamari starter (delicious with a hefty portion), followed by a pot pie each. Delicious home cooked food, very friendly service, and reasonable prices....More

This is a lovely 14th century pub, with beams and inglenook/wood-burners etc. The staff are delightful, a pleasure to talk to and be served by. There are few covers and booking is strongly advised as the cooking is understandably in demand. There is a smallish...More

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...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...More

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!
