Thank you for your lovely comments, most appreciated. Our pub has a great atmosphere especially when we have a good mix of locals, guests and tourists. Sorry about the mistake with your main course, offering a free desert was the least we could do and thanks for bearing with us. We hope to see again next time you visit Exmoor.... More

We stayed the night at a nearby B&B on my wife's birthday and had dinner here. It is a very lively 'locals' pub/hotel and the landlady and staff are very jovial and friendly. The meal was really delicious (compliments to the chef!) and the wine was good.

I've always spent a lot of time eating and drinking in The Crown on previous trips to Exmoor so it seemed natural to progress to booking a room for my latest stay. The first thing you notice on arriving at The Crown is the warm and genuine welcome from all the staff. My room was very comfortable and cosy with... More

We looked up this place following a good write up in the Telegraph. We were surprised not to find the place packed on Mothering Sunday but were met with a very warm welcome. We enjoyed our meals very much and would recommend the Crown to others. It's in a pleasant village and the pub has a very pleasant atmosphere with... More

I like the Crown. I have popped in numerous times for a beer, coffee, or a meal. I have not stopped here so cannot comment on the accommodation but the food is good, the beer is excellent, the service is quick and thoughtful, and the wines good value. Moreover, it overlooks the green, has it's own car park, and welcomes... More

Stopped off here for lunch in the bar as we have done before. Didn't fancy the lentil soup so chose ham on brown baguettes. They came packed with flavourful ham with loads of crisps, salad and coleslaw. The baguettes crispy and tasty - the best we have had recently. Wonderful. Cannot understand why it was not packed out.
