With its rustic exterear and amazing views of the rolling hills, the only sound you will hear is the mooing of cows in the field next door. Set in this small but charming village of Cadeleigh which sits in the hills above the valley of the River Exe and is about 15 km (9 miles) north of Exeter and 6 km (4 miles) southwest of Tiverton. This Charming pub welcomes you as soon as you open the door. A smilely face behind the bar is there for your every need whether its to quench you thirst, fill you tummy or rest you weary feet. There is even water and treats mans best friend. Take a seat in the winter and toast your toes by the log buner or if the waether is fair enjoy the stunning views from the garden The barstaff will talk you through choosing a local real ale or a fine wine offering you a taste to see if it suits your palette. The lovely waiting staff will be there for your every need and will explain the menu to you if you have any dietry requirements or are not sure what to order. At the Cadeleigh Arms nothing is ever a problem. We understand no two people are the same and will help you have a truely lovely experience from the moment you step inside. We look forward to welcoming you and you family. See you soon, Nick, Tina and The Cadeleigh Staff

you can now order or walk in for great freshly made fish and chips well wrapped in your favourite newspaper (ha need to be lucky for that) lovely fresh fish and super nice chips - not greasy like down at the chippy. Order in advance at busy times to be sure of your treat, when we picked up ours they were sold out

A really lovely pub in the middle of a small village. We visited on a Thursday evening and there was only one person serving behind the bar as well as manning tables. I thought the service would be slow with only one person but we received our food so quickly and we were never left waiting long between courses. My boyfriend and I both had chicken liver parfait and sliders for our starter and main courses. The parfait was beautiful, very soft and there was enough bread (we always struggle with not having enough bread)! The 3 sliders were superb, with the minted lamb burger being my personal favourite. For pudding we had the chocolate fondant and apple pie and we were not disappointed, 2 really yummy desserts to finish the fabulous meal. If you're in Devon it is definitely worth a visit!

Pleasant enough little village pub, clean & not over themed. Waited ages for food. Limited menu. In our opinion for one course & sweet very expensive. Admittedly designer G&T's but cost for 4 x Tarquins & tonics £19.40 .... aghast!
Chicken breast on butter bean /chorizo cassoulet, smallportions. £12.95 each. SORRY but not out in the sticks, this is rip of tourist time with a vengeance.

Good afternoon,

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we cannot apologise for the 20 minute wait for your food, or for your purchase of our Tarquin's Cornish handmade Gin. (There were other gins on offer). We also cannot apologise for the limited menu in your opinion or for the small portions. What we can do is form a sensible reply to your opinions as for other people to read and form their own opinions.

As stated on our website our food is seasonal, sustainable and fresh. There are two menus with no less than 7 starters and 8 main courses. These also cater for vegans, vegetarians, coeliacs and many other dietary requirements. All of our menus and prices are kept up to date along with our food ethos and what we believe in. This might appear limited to some people that are accustomed to frequenting chain pubs with huge menus and lots of choice. The twenty minute wait you incurred was due to you having no starter. For food cooked from absolute scratch as we do here a twenty minute wait is considered normal when not ordering a starter. Again you are informed of this when ordering food. All of our wines, spirits and beers are clearly priced. We did not force you to order Tarquin's gin. This is a standard price for Tarquin's with tonic in most establishments. If you were "aghast" at the price we are really not sure why you would another two of the same drink?
The chicken breast is an 8oz locally sourced free range chicken breast, nitrate free chorizo, sauce, fresh bowl of local vegetables tossed in a light herb oil. Please note we do not charge extra for vegetables like a lot of establishments.
Now for the exciting bit. Your £12.95 locally sourced chicken breast with chorizo & butter bean cassoulet, local vegetables, air laid napkin, seasoning, fresh flowers on the table, outside seating overlooking the valley, a waiter, a chef, iced water, glasses, kitchen porter and much much more all has to be paid for. Our costings and prices are rather competitive if not cheaper than certain establishments in the surrounding area. Such a shame you were not aware of this. If you had just asked I could of come and spoken to you at length about our establishment and menus and listened to any advice you might of had on how to keep costings down?
I would strongly suggest anybody looking to eat out and about thoroughly looks at an establishments website. Most of us have them and they are always up to date with offers, menus, prices and even a little bit about the sourcing of the local food.
We are sorry that we could not please you, but hey if we were all the same and had the same opinion the world would be a boring place......

Regards

Nick

We had an absolutely lovely afternoon at the Cadeleigh Arms. The pub was quiet when we arrived but soon filled up with other diners. The building is beautiful and very atmospheric, the views stunning and worth a trek from Exeter. All lovely but secondary to the brilliant cooking coming out of the kitchen. I had a fantastic pork belly dish which was succulent with excellent crackling but was still jealous of the beautiful roast beef that my husband had. Will just have to return to have that too! Puddings were delicious and certainly won the vote of our two children. With friendly service to boot this is not a place to be missed!
