The Bear and Blacksmith
Chillington, Kingsbridge, TQ7 2LD
The team at the Bear and Blacksmith passionately believe in the importance of supporting local producers and sourcing only the best local ingredients for their customers.
With their own smallholding just 3 miles from the pub and a vegetable patch which backs onto the beer garden, landlords Malcolm Church and Claire Mundy grow many of the vegetables and salads that appear on the menu as well as rearing their own sheep, pigs and poultry. Beef is reared on a farm just down the road in Slapton and supplied by the Salcombe Meat Company.
Fresh fish and shellfish also feature strongly on the menu and arrives from local dayboats operating out of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Start Bay.
Lunch and dinner menus feature a range of modern British pub classics while the Specials menu - which changes daily reflecting what is brought to the kitchen door - showcases a selection of more complex, innovative dishes. Sunday lunch features a choice of three exceptional roast meats served with all the trimmings.
The pub hosts a variety of special events throughout the year and cater for outside events. See website for more details.
