The Blagdon Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Blagdon Inn looks like a quintessentially English pub from the outside; as you step inside into the olde-worlde setting, you’ll enjoy a truly warm Devon welcome, not to mention discover its fascinating and haunting history, which dates back to the 15th century.
The Blagdon Inn started life as a barn and is a beautiful example of a traditional thatched Devon building. Recently, it was extended to include stabling and, after enjoying various incarnations, it’s now the ever-popular Blagdon Inn you see today. Guests are assured of excellent service, traditional fine dining and a deliciously tempting menu, which features fresh, local ingredients that vary with the seasons. Perhaps start with the delicious seafood skewers –the king prawns are marinated in a lime, coriander and chilli salsa. Perhaps their breaded halloumi is more up your street, perfect for dunking into the tasty tomato and basil dip. For your main course, you can indulge in steaks from the grill, or ribbons of pappardelle topped with melting beef fillet, chilli beans and cherry tomatoes, or even the hot and sizzling fajitas. No great meal is complete without dessert, so be sure to finish your feast with some scrumptious handmade sweet treats. There’s also a renowned carvery served all day Sunday, so fill up a plate and prepare to enjoy yourself. What’s more, there is a variety of themed nights, including the very popular homemade pie night, and an all-you-can-eat curry night to pep up your palate. Why not take a seat on the charming patio and enjoy a little Devonshire sunshine as you dine al fresco? Cosy log fires are lit when winter hits. The Blagdon Inn is the perfect place to socialise with friends and family, and escape the hustle and bustle while sampling some great-tasting home-cooked fare and from a delectable selection of wine, real ale and spirits.
What’s more, The Blagdon Inn is a top destination when it comes to hosting weddings, parties and business events (for up to 100 people) thanks to its superb location on the outskirts of Paignton. Great facilities, such as a private bar, full business packages, on-site catering, entertainment, and nearby accommodation make The Blagdon Inn a special place indeed, whether your visit is for business or pleasure.
