We were lucky enough to stay here for 2 nights as a gift from my mum and dad. The food was fantastic and the landlord could not do enough for us. Great breakfast and the room was more than comfortable. It's a great base for lots of exmoor exploring! Really really enjoyed out stay. Can't wait to go back :)... More

Arrived rather late in the day, although had previously advised of this. Were greeted immediately by the Landlord and shown to our room. A table had been held for our arrival in the restaurant, just in case. Food was fresh and of a good standard. Accommodation standard was certainly more than we had expected. Landlord even invited our friends who... More

Good rooms, really well looked after beer, the glasses are sparkling. The food is excellent quality, both the breakfast and the dinner. The staff know how to time a meal too. I picked from the menu, my friend picked from the excellent carvery, we started our meals together, everything timed to perfection by the hard working and friendly staff.

Up from the Isle of Wight for a short break we thought we would try the Rest and Be Thankful for one evening meal to see if it was as good as we had remembered it when we were there in May. Well the one evening meal turned into the seven and each one was great. We can highly recommend... More

We only stopped for a plougsnd but it was fantastic, proper chutney and giant pickled onion, flavoursome cheese, very generous portion. Lovely friendly welcome and very conveniently situated. Will definitely be back for a more substantial meal off the very inviting menu.

Although we are local to the area, this pub is a good 10 miles away from us and not the easiest journey to make, but, the carvery is so worth the trek! Never a disappointment, the meat is always tender, never dry, crispy roast potatoes and a selection of vegetables any non meat eater would be happy to have a... More

A big "thank you" to Eric, Julie , Caroline & the staff for their excellent pub - a genuine hub of the community. The rooms were comfortable & well equipped, the food was great & the location/setting quintessentially English & ideal for our purpose (Ironman 70.3 UK). Eric is a machine! - up serving breakfast as early as 4.00 am... More

A great location for a traditional English pub. The staff are welcoming and attentive. The food was fresh, well-presented and plentiful. The ambiance was just right for a country inn in great countryside. Recommended.
