Booked a table for special meal out. Was told restaurant was shut so booked table in lounge bar. On arrival Public Bar was busy but there was no one serving in the lounge bar and we were left standing waiting for about 10 mins before the chef appeared and showed us to a table which was not the one we...

We stayed here just for 1 night recently and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. The pub is set in the very small beautiful village of Withypool, in an Exmoor valley with a lovely small river running through it. The Inn has about 8 rooms which are comfortable and obviously decorated with a country theme and sit above the... More

We only ate here as we were staying in a local holiday let and this pub was recommended... That was a top class suggestion because the food at this local pub was some of the best food we have had in a while. It was fresh, presented well and the portion sizes were generous we certainly didn't leave hungry. The... More

Had a one night stopover whilst in Exmoor (wish it was longer!!!). After a long journey we received a great welcome from the staff on our arrival and was told they had reserved a table for us in the restaurant for our evening meal, which was appreciated as the whole restaurant was full all evening. We soon found out why,... More

Rooms were full of character and the bed was so comfortable, lovely and big. Very friendly welcome by the proprietors and will definitely return. Thank you for a lovely stay. Colin and Jackie...

Very pretty small village situated just off the Moor. Close to absolutely nothing and ideal for people looking to enjoy the countryside and peace and quiet. The hotel rooms was spacious and had a nice view. The room itself was very comfortable and clean and met all our needs. We had a delightful meal in the restaurant and it was... More

Stayed here overnight with two chums on our penultimate night walking the Two Moors Way from Plymouth to Lynmouth. Our twin room was spacious and very clean, with the bathroom large enough to house a bath rather than just a shower- much appreciated after 6 days walking! Breakfast was very good too. My only gripe is that the bed was... More

Where do I start. 1. Guinness was old left in barrel to long. 2. Mixed grill was cooked in dirty pan with old fat and consequently tasted burnt with no difference between the meats. 3. Replacement meal. Cod and chips. Was a child's portion, half the size compared to other positions on the table. 4. The named driver of the... More

I just had a fantastic Sunday Lunch here. The menu pretty much offered something for most tastes - we had the Horn Hoggit (older than a lamb, younger than mutton) and it was really good. I haven't been here for a good few years but I can say that the food is as good if not better than ever. I've... More
