Old fashioned values such as politness, helpfulness and friendliness are "a plenty" here. Eric Norman, the Landlord, his family and staff go the extra mile to make your time at the Inn enjoyable. Well kept real ale on draught and scrumpy cider were available and both very enjoyable, although the scrumpy does need to be treated with caution; it's STRONG!... More

Stayed for 3 nights for a walking break in May. Even though we got stuck in awful Bank Holiday traffic and arrived after the kitchen shut we were given a good-sized sandwich. Very friendly staff (and a fascinating cast of characters in the bar), large, comfortable room (albeit with some interesting slopes to the floor due to the age of... More

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.
