We were a party of three, didn't have a starter, two had braised blade of beef one had roast chicken breast, the beef was the most tender beef I have ever tasted, the chicken also was excellent, it all came beautifully presented with seven different vegetables. The two young ladies serving were very efficient, nothing was too much trouble. Sadly... More

I went with my husband to The Cranford Inn on Saturday 25th February. He had duck breast with potatoes and roasted vegetables. I had chicken breast wrapped in bacon with barbeque sauce, garlic new potatoes and mixed salad. Both were delicious and we cleared our plates. We did leave room for desserts however. He had chocolate brownie with salted caramel... More

Went out for an evening meal and was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and the owner was extremely pleasant and welcoming. We hadn't been since the new owners took over. The menu had a good selection and the prices are about average for this area. Had a lovely meal in a friendly atmosphere and will be going back soon... More

While in Devon visiting my Uncle we decided on a meal out. We had not been to the Cranford Inn before although my Uncle had a while ago. So we googled it to get the number to book a table for the 4 of us and came across the trip advisor reviews, while most are positive we did chuckle at... More

The menu is a bit ordinary, but preparation is excellent and plenty of it. Tapas especially good. Wine was well chambered and the staff were attentive. Recommended!

Firstly and foremost my most sincere apologies for the comment that was made, we take all dietary requirements and allergies very seriously and always ensure that the kitchen and staff are aware at all times. The comment was made in a light hearted way due to the general tone of the particular conversation. It was after the orders were taken... More

My husband and I have just had a fantastic Sunday lunch, the beef was so tender and the amount of roast potatoes, parsnips and veg was cooked so well. Every time we eat at the Cranford it is always amazing!
