Wevisited the pub for a family meal, 9 adults and 4 children as we were holidaying nearby. The staff were all really welcoming and helpful, and the food was great, deliciious home cooked meals. The beer was good, and the locals friendly, we could not ask For any more!

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.

We ate here on a Saturday night but could only get in at 6 PM. The vegetarian choice was okay but was quite expensive, my wife's leek, mushroom and chive bake was nearly £12, and chips were £2.95 extra, although after a bit of discussion these were included instead of vegetables. The room was cold and light Was very harsh.... More

There is a good selection of real-ales on offer too. We would have given 5 stars but my wife is coeliac and although was told... More

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.

The bar and restaurant are warm & comfortable and the staff were very welcoming and pleasant. The regular menu items seemed to be rather expensive (£16 to £24 for mains) but the (5?) specials items were all £9.50 which was much more realistic. Our food was good rather than excellent and it all seemed to be home made rather than... More

Had very good meal with excellent service. Commented to chef (he was stood in bar when we finished) that the king prawns in lime salad would have been even better if there had been little dressing on salad. He replied that there should have been dressing on the plate before the salad was added, very unhappy if that was not... More

This pub is of the beaten track but, well worth a visit. The food is lovely. The staff friendly, and the pub has a good atmosphere. We had a roast which was good.

We often eat at Crealock Arms with friends and normally choose from the specials board which has around 6 meals available. the food is always piping hot with the steak and kidney pie and the pork chop with bacon and cheese in a mushroom sauce being my favourites. The chef is always obliging when special requests are asked for and... More

Great meal here, especially the blackboard specials. Only one thing lets the Crealock down is the owner's refusal to mix and match. By this I mean, you can have chips & peas or potatoes and veg. If you want to have chips and veg, which I think is the best format, you have to pay extra.

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.
