Lovely old pub in Porlock village, great location for exploring the National Trust Holnicote Estate, which is a great location for a walker's visit, with ancient wooded valleys, a sweeping pebble beach and heather moorland with dramatic views across the Bristol Channel to South Wales. Food delicious and reasonably priced, beer excellent, rooms are nice and clean - if a... More

We were given a very warm welcome by the staff and shown to our room which was clean and comfortable, if a little dated. The food was again delicious... More

Stopped here for dinner during our long weekend in Exmoor. We thought this looked the most inviting place in Porlock, and we were not disappointed with the good food on offer. Great Value and service.

Arrived late on a Saturday night for dinner, very busy but got a table without a reservation. Were advised there'd be a long wait which wasn't a problem. Good food and friendly service. Would go back.

We regularly visit Porlock and the Ship is always our favourite local pub. The beer is never short of excellent and on the last visit the bar man could not have been more helpful offering to help me carry drinks outside. The garden is delightful and the pub is dog friendly. We ate two bar snacks last time we were... More

We ate here as a group of 10 including children. Such a beautiful pub in picturesque porlock. Food was fantastic with something for everyone. Nothing was too much trouble and service was friendly and quick. The gardens were lovely with a great play park for kids.
