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.

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

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.
