The Bear & Blacksmith

A 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 and also from The Salcombe Meat Co.

This is all accompanied by our lovingly home grown vegetables or produce from Wilton Farm in South Pool.
