We booked a table here for a birthday meal, having been recommended by a friend who had holidayed in the area, he said the pork belly meal was the best he'd ever had. The night we came the pork belly was off so we were slightly disappointed. The other disappointing thing was that when we arrived the bar was full... More

Stayed here for a long weekend, can't fault the room, food or service. The room was very clean and well equipped with a comfortable bed. Extra blankets/pillows provided. Breakfast was full English with variations, nice to see smoked Haddock with poached egg for a change. Cereal, fruit and yoghurt from the sideboard. A good selection on the dinner menu. Fresh,...

Warm welcome from the owner. I did not have my dog with me but she would have been very at home here. Lovely clean room. Made up as a double but immediately rectified to 2 singles. Food was lovely. Atmosphere was relaxed and easy going. Breakfast was hearty. I would definitely return. Only thing I would mention is stairs up... More

Comfortable room, a great welcome always at this first class family owned and run hotel. The food was excellent, as was the company, the room was 5 star. The dogs were made to feel as welcome as we were. Not our first stay, and not our last at this truly outstanding establishment in the heart of Exmoor. John and Clare

We stayed 2 nights and were immediately impressed by the brilliant location, with wonderful walks from the Inn. No need for the car. We were made very welcome by friendly staff. Our small dog was also made welcome with towels for wiping muddy feet. Amazingly after quite a long walk when he was particularly muddy, they also provided a bucket... More

We stayed here as an overnight stop walking the Two Moors Way. A very nice family run establishment with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Refreshing to get a full English breakfast with everything rather than the more usual sausages or bacon, tomatoes or beans.

Having made a last minute decision to take a 4 day break in the Somerset/Devon area, I scoured booking.com and found this lovely little gem. Perfectly located for walks on the moor and within easy reach of the coast, this made an ideal base for us. The staff were welcoming, and friendly and the food was delicious. Their breakfast menu...
