Located in the sleepy village of Clyst Hydon, The Five Bells Inn is a beautiful thatched farmhouse offering fine dining mixed with traditional pub grub. Just 11 miles from Exeter, you can slow down time in our cosy atmosphere, relaxing with real ales, Devon ciders and locally produced food.

Visited a few years ago and was frankly disappointed. At one time this was a local pub with a really good restaurant, it had become a thatched bistro. Since December 2017 it has been owned by a local couple who have had considerable experience in the trade and during the few months they have improved the place beyond recognition. There is now a reasonably priced table d’hote with a daily specials selection. A good selection of wines, beers and a local cider is offered. It won’t be long before I return. All dishes are prepared in house and sourced locally.
