We chose this hotel for our three night stay on Exmoor because it positively welcomes dogs. The staff were very friendly and the food in the bar and dining room was excellent. They make specific efforts to cater for those of us who can't eat gluten or dairy, which was very much appreciated. Wi-fi was available and reached up to... More

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. All or food is freshly prepared and cooked so gluten and dairy free diets are not a problem for us and we like to think we offer a good special diet menu. Exmoor is lovely place to explore especially with dogs, and they are more than welcome... More

This is an excellent hotel in a very pretty village in the heart of Exmoor. We have stayed here before and it is a really lovely welcoming place to stay. The food is really good with plenty of choice.We would recommend eating in the dining room rather than the public bar. The hotel is comfortably furnished and the staff are... More

On arrival ( like other guests) there was no one to check us in, we rang the bell but felt ignored as I could hear that someone was just through the door beyond the reception desk but was ignoring us. We found someone in the bar to check us in. Our room (11) was comfortable enough, I banged my head... More

Thank you for comments and sorry your stay with us wasn't to your full satisfaction. We are always striving to improve and will take all your comments into consideration. The hotel is 17th century and some of our more cosy rooms do have less head room, but we do feel this adds to the character and charm of the hotel.... More

Excellent hotel and location for a short break, we have just had a couple of nights at The Crown to recharge our batteries. What a lovely location in a beautiful little village, our room was No.9 and overlooked the village green, a comfortable room with en-suite toilet and shower, towels were beautifully soft and toiletries were supplied. Tea and coffee... More

We come back to The Crown every year, and the food just gets better and better. We requested table 4, as I booked a couple of weeks prior to arriving in Exford. Our table was ready for us on arrival, and it was lovely to see all the lovely new touches to the bar, the soft cushions were so cosy,... More

Popped in for lunch and was only expecting a bar snack. What a surprise, really top notch food. The chap behind the bar who was also the waiter was really friendly and helpful.

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.
