The Bear and Blacksmith in Chillington is an ultra local pub serving high quality local ingredients prepared by an award winning chef.

About The Bear & Blacksmith

 The Bear and Blacksmith kitchen is skilfully run by experienced chef and landlord Malcolm Church who has over 20 years cheffing under his belt.

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.

  ''Here at The Bear and Blacksmith, we take great pride in sourcing and cooking the best produce around. Our purpose is to serve you locally grown fresh food bursting with flavour!''

We are very selective about the produce we use in the kitchen. With a smallholdings in South Allington, Sherford (new for 2019) and some land next to the pub (go and have a look!), we are now growing many of our own vegetables and salads, as well as rearing our own lamb, chickens and pigs. Keeping all this in-house enables us to ensure the quality of all our produce, and keep prices lower for our diners.

We have built our own butchery, this means we can hang our beef for the optimal time, and cut everything to our requirements, using the maximum amount of every animal – you can even order your own meat box from The Bear & Blacksmith Butchery.


As well as our daily changing Specials Menu we have:

Wednesday – Steak Night

Two Salcombe Meat Co Steaks, served with balsamic shallots, vine tomatoes, field mushroom and rustic chips, plus a bottle of house win

£40

Thursday – Fish & Chips

Two portions of line caught day boat fish, battered and served with chips, pea puree,  and our own tartare sauce

£18

Sunday – Roast

Locally sourced meat served with all the trimmings

£13

What a lovely evening meal with my family to celebrate my birthday. Enjoyed the breaded brie for started and a delicious fillet steak, which I requested to be cooked though due to being pregnant but was still so tender and cooked perfectly. Had the very tasty lemon tart for pudding and some of my party had the chocolate fondant which they also throughly enjoyed. The staff were absolutely lovely and very attentive. Will definitely be coming back for more wonderful meals. Thank you.

I'm not much of a drinker, so I've only come here to eat in the restaurant and its a really nice place.
Its one of the most modern pubs in the area with it being 'recently' renovated. Its still got the classic 'British Pub' feel but it looks more 21st century.
Its not the largest building, so if the pub is busy, it can get pretty crowded and a little noisy, but it does have an outside area/garden for the nicer days.
The food is very good - Its reasonably priced, tasty and generous portions. The staff and owners here are also very welcoming.

Delicious food, mostly locally sourced. Had a delicious lobster dinner, fully prepared, with none of the hassle of having to do it yourself. Excellent choice of deserts too. Choice of open air eating or inside.

We have just enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch here. We had lamb and beef which was superbly cooked together with wonderful fresh vegetables.

The service was very much with a smile, all the staff were really friendly and extremely efficient.

We can't wait to return when next in the area.

We walked here from Frogmore. Starters of king prawn, lime and chilli were best ever king prawn starter. Main fish plate with samphire and new potatoes was great but a bit wetter than expected... we ordered extra bread to mop up. Dessert of almond sponge with apricot and clotted cream was heavenly. Washed down with pink fizz!then the walk back.. wish people would drive slower so walking was less hazardous!
