We only stayed one night here, opting for a king-size bed which was very comfortable. The traditionally furnished room and bathroom were spotless. This is a really lovely village with lovely walks around, and the hotel reflects the historic hunting industry which provided its guests for hundreds of years. There are lots of hunting prints and mementos, open fireplaces, and... More

We have just returned from a long Easter weekend break, staying at the Crown and accompanied by our standard poodle Hugo. Nothing was too much trouble, all staff were very friendly and we were able to keep our dog with us at all times. Hugo was welcomed in the bar in the evenings and we were served breakfast in the...

This was our annual holiday visit to Exmoor so decided to visit the Crown again as we had lunch there and was very impressed last year. This time it was an evening visit and the barman very quickly found us a table as all the others were reserved. My husband and I both decided to have the Cod Loin in... More

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your meal with us. All our food is freshly cooked to order and our chips are most definitely not frozen, we buy premium potatoes which are then peeled, steamed, blanched and fried in our kitchen by our own chefs, so I am at a loss as to why they tasted frozen....

Just enjoyed a 1 night stay at The Crown, our second visit and it did not disappoint. We had an evening meal in the bar and the food was superb. We can highly recommend the beef and ale pie! Excellent friendly service. We will be back.

Thank you for your great review and glad you enjoyed another stay with us. Our bar has a great atmosphere and serves wonderful home cooked food, with our pie being one of the more popular dishes due to it being a 'proper' home cooked pie. We very much look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes Sara, Dan & Chris More

Dropped in by chance, on a chilly evening after a walk across the moor. Immediately warmly welcomed by the staff, and despite reservations on a number of tables, they ushered us to a table for two. Menus and beer in our hands, orders taken, background hubbub by the bar, food arrived and it was just splendid; the duck breast and... More

Just when you think The Crown can't top the high standard of service and food they pull something extra out of the bag to raise the bar even higher. I had been on a business trip to Yeovil on a raw January day so it was very welcome to walk into the warm and friendly bar of The Crown hotel... More
