Set in the heart of mid Devon along winding country lanes is the delightful Cadeleigh Arms, which has been named by Estrella Damm as one of the top 50 gastropubs in the UK. Boasting a rustic exterior and stunning views across rolling Devonshire hills, the pub lies in the small but charming village of Cadeleigh, which is situated above the valley of the River Exe and just north of Exeter.
This friendly informal pub combines a charming traditional feel with the elegance and detail of a fine dining restaurant. In the colder months the pub is cosy, warm and bustling with chit-chat around the intimate tables by the log burner. The warmer months bring al fresco dining to the Cadeleigh’s sun terrace, where guests can dine with a backdrop of the picturesque fields and valleys below, and the only sound you can hear for miles comes from the Devon Ruby cows in the neighbouring field; it’s a heavenly way to spend a lazy afternoon. The pub is dog-friendly throughout and boasts a dog bed by the fire, tasty treats and a basket of toys, making it easy to see why the pub was crowned Devon’s Most Dog-Friendly Pub at the Devon Tourism Awards. At the Cadeleigh Arms nothing is too much trouble. The team understands that no two people are the same and will endeavour to provide the perfect personal dining experience from the moment you step inside.
