Had the best 5 days stay here,enjoyed great food and excellent beers & ciders. The location is picturesque and the walks go for miles and miles with stunning views and unique nooks and crannies to explore. The land lord & lady of the pub run the Bottom Ship also which is also in a wonderful location, food equally as good,and... 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.

We didn't stay here just visited for food and ale. Superb! You can't beat a good pint of exmoor ales- beast! The staff were friendly, the locals were inviting and the food was delicious. We will defintely visit this pub again and made an effort to go back twice in our stay .

We stayed here for two nights and have immediately booked to return for another mid week break. The room is comfortable, warm and provided enough coffee and tea for as many cups as you could reasonably drink ! The breakfast choice was good and served from 9-10. The real joys of this inn as far as we were concerned were... More

We came back as it is so lovely here and we were blessed with brilliant weather, did a huge walk up Dunkerry Beacon - about 5 hours in total, well worth it just for the views. We forgot to say in our first review that they allow dogs, not just in the pub but in the rooms, you can take... More

Great food, nice atmosphere in the bar, friendly staff, dogs welcome, good beer...so just what you want in an English pub when staying over. Rooms are comfy, a bit on the shabby side, but ok overall. Very warm and cosy on a cold winter's night.

The Top Ship Inn offers fabulous home cooked food, a cosy atmosphere, excellent and attentive staff and great accommodation. We had a wonderful family break here and will definitely be returning in the near future.

Stayed here several times in recent years with 3-4 friends for mountain biking weekends and love it. Great beer, good food, friendly and competent staff and good value rooms. Perfect for mountain biking I think. Why stay anywhere else? The Bottom Ship in Porlock Weir is almost as good but a little further from the best riding.

They have a special offer on from November until March - two nights for the price of one - fantastic. The pub is a proper old fashioned pub with great food and lots of locals. The breakfast was very filling and tasty and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Lots of lovely walks from here and the Bottom Ship have... More

We stayed here for two nights. Yes it is a little shabby but most of it is the original building and has so much atmosphere. It was good being able to take the dogs with us, they tucked in nicely under the table and behaved. Breakfast was nice and what we expected for such a traditional place (no marmalade though)....
