We had such a lovely time despite the rain ! And the dogs were made welcome too...The meals were great and well priced. Staff were lovely. Our only reservation was that two nights were not long enough...and that my dog (a lab; Woody) who was recovering from an operation, had to be discouraged from all the delicious wet footpaths ....

We stayed at the Exmoor Forest Inn on 16/08/15 whilst walking the last two days of the Two Moors Way. Good reviews had already encouraged us to choose this Inn, but we were especially appreciative when one of our party feeling unwell was welcomed early into his room. Having stayed at very nice hotels around the World we have to... More

Stayed 2 nights to visit the Exford Show, not our first stay here, and it won't be our last. Another great visit, accommodation excellent, food and drink wonderful, staff helpful and friendly, dogs welcome. This area suits those who love the outdoors, and the Exmoor Forest caters perfectly for them. Can't wait to get back. John and Clare

It is quite difficult to find good food in the South West in a restaurant and nearly impossible in a pub. We stopped to eat something at the Exmoor Forest Inn and what a surprise. The food was excellent and very well seasoned.

Large and comfortable room, excellent dinner and breakfast, prompt and friendly service. Beautiful area, and very quiet road. Exterior looked a bit shabby, but overall our experience was fantastic. Dogs are allowed and owners have two, but they didn't intrude and no smells!

After a disappointment elsewhere we dropped into the bar hoping for a quick early dinner. We couldn't have been made more welcome, the staff even brought crayons to keep our three year old entertained! My wife had baked Camembert then fish and chips and I had whitebait followed by a steak, washed down with a local ale. The beer was... More

We found this inn a bit remote. But the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very good. Very dog friendly. Rooms, especially bedrooms, in need of updating, though very clean. Would recommend if you want a relaxing break and not keen on driving to other areas.

Lovely Hotel in a peaceful location, perfect for visiting all that Exmoor has to offer. The staff are very friendly and service was prompt. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast superb. The menu offers a good choice and the food was well cooked and presented/ We would definately stay here again.

We booked 3 rooms for 3 nights at the Exmoor Forest Inn in July 2015. The location was perfect for visiting the moors, Lynton and Lynmouth and climbing Dunkery Beacon. Our welcome was warm and friendly, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable with lovely little extras such as bathrobes. Breakfast was spot on with lots of choice and a... More
