The Bear & Blacksmith

An Award Winning Pub for Locals & Visitors Alike

Our friendly pub based in Chillington boasts a warm and welcoming atmosphere for locals and visitors alike.

We are proud to support local suppliers and serve a delicious range of locally grown produce and drinks.

Our menu features the freshest fish and seafood from the shores surrounding the pub, as well as a selection of Devon’s finest meat sourced and butchered from our own farm plus local beef from Slapton.

This is all accompanied by our lovingly home grown vegetables or produce from The Bear & Blacksmith Farm.

Forget Food Miles

The Kitchen Garden

0 miles

Claire grows a range of home grown vegetables from seed and then lovingly cares for the kitchen garden situated right next to the pub.

The Farm

3 miles

Starting from a 4 1/2 acre small holding in South Allington, in 2019 The Bear & Blacksmith Farm has expanded to 50 acres in the local area, allowing us to grow and rear as much of our own produce as possible. 

The Boat

10 Miles

The Salcombe Day Boat “Hustler” run by father and son team Phil & Adam Cardew catch our Crab. Rod and line caught fish come from Chris Roberts and his boat “Anglo Dawn”.

Local Producers

from 3 Miles

Wilton Farm in South Pool supplement what the Kitchen Garden and Farm can’t produce with a variety of Vegetables.

Local Beverages

from 1.8 Miles

Our tried and tasted local drinks come from the South Hams Brewery (just down the road), Bays Brewery (in Torbay), Lusbcombe Drinks (near Buckfastleigh) & Otter Brewery (near Honiton).   

The hands on approach

Firm believers in responsibly sourcing all their produce, The Bear & Blacksmith haven’t stopped at just a Kitchen Garden, looking after their own livestock means that they know exactly how well looked after the animals are.
