Professionally run and enjoyable inn with a good atmosphere and well appointed. Our roast lamb and steak + mushroom pie meals were tasty with good portions. Well kept real ales were enjoyed also. Worth taking the effort to find.

My wife & I pay a visit to the Crealock whenever we holiday in the area. We know we'll get good food and service, and the warm welcome is appreciated. It is popular so make sure you give them a call in advance.

Yes, as long as you don't expect him to eat the food. Dogs have very delicate digestions, and I'd hate him to be sick.

The Crealock Arms in Littleham is the epitomy of an English country pub in a beautiful North Devon setting, yet just 10 minutes drive from the town of Bideford. The traditional family-run pub enjoys magnificent country views – from its large beer garden you can see three local church towers! Named after a 19th century village squire and landowner, The Crealock was created from a former farmhouse and opened as a pub in 1977 by members of the farm’s Nicholls family, who have lived there for more than 100 years. Today it is run by Clare and Rick Morgan. Clare is the grand-daughter of its founders and the couple’s two young children are the family’s seventh generation to live on the site. The Crealock it is at the heart of the village community, a meeting place for the locals and venue for events, as well as a favourite with diners and an ideal place to take the family.
