Booked just two days before (booking recommended). Took our two dogs & they kindly sat us in the bar area & made us feel very welcome. The venison & the saddle of lamb were simpl;y stunning, really good food!! Didn't actually stay here, but it looked lovely!

Comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast and excellent service. You can't always do much about the weather on Exmoor, but you can choose the prefect base from which to explore. Super dog friendly too - with complimentary bonios on the bar. Well done Mark and team.

We had a overnight stay at the Royal Oak, with dinner and breakfast. From start to finish it was fantastic. The hotel is beautiful, clean, cosy and the staff are brilliant. We booked the king size four-poster and it was perfect. Dinner was an absolute treat, cooked to perfection. Breakfast was delicious with a varied choice for all appetites. If... More

We were staying in the near by village of Withypool over Christmas and following our local pub in the village being so unrelaiable and non friendly we ventured over to Winsford. We are so happy we did - the welcome we got from the landlord and staff was warm and friendly, the atmosphere in the pub overall was great you... More

The food was delicious. Service excellent staff delightful. Accommodation really comfortable and they actually know how to make proper liquor coffees... More

Our family, including a 22 month old have just spent a wonderful weekend at this lovely pub . Our welcome was warm and set the tone for a lovely stay. Fabulous rooms, scrummy food. We shall return as we loved every minute - nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.

There were 6 of us, and we enjoyed a lovely dinner. We decided to go out for a dinner at Exmoor on our last day of our holidays. On arrival at 6pm, it looked a typical village with no street lights and the light came from some of the houses. It was certainly a pleasant experience as we enjoyed the... More

We have just returned from a weekend at The Royal Oak at Winsford and it was excellent. The room was lovely and spacious and warm, facilities were good as were all the meals and as we ate in every evening and some lunchtimes we certainly tried a variety of different ones.

Stayed for our anniversary as we wanted a break away. The Inn itself is a wonderful building, the staff were friendly and helpful. Lovely village location. The food was wonderful, and we both enjoyed our courses immensely. The only reason this is a 4 not a 5 was that there were building/renovations going on and we were unable to access... More

We restrict scheduled maintenance to the hours between 11am and 2pm which is the period during our normal check in and out times. Access to rooms was not restricted in any way on Saturday when this reviewer chose to watch the Rugby Quarter Final in the bar with our other guests. The team are disappointed with this review More
