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

I stayed at the Crown as the overspill from a party staying elsewhere. I arrived late left early and did not eat and therefore cannot comment on the other amenities the bars or the restaurant. The Room (12) was clean and had everything that I needed but was otherwise totally uninspiring the bed was soft and had obviously seen better... 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.

Visited Exford recently and camped nearby this delightful hote/pub/restaurant. The food was delicious on both visits, the menu is varied and good value for money. Although the bar was full of locals there was a great welcome. The landlady/proprietress was really friendly . Would thoroughly recommend for a pint of real ale or a quality meal (or both as we...

The Crown is an hotel but also an appealing village pub which serves very good food. We were welcomed in the bar and given menus. The prices are reasonable and there is variety of choice. The well kept beer and cider occupied us while the meal was prepared. The atmosphere is cheerful but not too loud. There are interesting pictures... More

My Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in August, and the rooms were OK, if a little sad, in need of some refurbishment (wall paper coming off the wall in the bathroom, probably because the extractor fan was not working). The lounge was a pleasant quiet place to read in comfort. The breakfast was good with a variety... More

Thank you for your review. We have now addressed the fan problem and thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Thank you for your lovely comments and I'll let chef know how much you enjoyed the food. Mobile phone signal is available on some networks (Orange and Vodaphone) and we do have wi-fi for those who need to keep in touch, although guests do tend to like the novelty of 'getting away from it all'.
