This is a busy little pub, but we had a warm welcome & the food was very nice. We would definitely eat here again.

Had a fantastic sunday roast beef lunch along with my family. Everything was cooked to perfection. Well done. Very friendly staff and such a homely feel to this pub, it will certainly be one of our scheduled haunts from now on. Thank you so much.

This is a charming building in a lovely spot. It would be great in summer. But it was winter, and the inside is brightly lit and lacking charm. The one log fire helped a bit. The food was better than we expected, with a good steak, adequate chips and frozen peas. The liver tasted good but was completely overcooked. The... More

Been to both the Top Ship in Porlock & Bottom Ship in Porlock weir and they are both great. I have stayed in the over night accommodation in both and they are lovely with reasonable rates, friendly and helpful staff. Both pubs service a good variety of local ciders and ales well worth a visit!

Lovely pub with equally good food, accommodation pleasant and clean. Great deal 2 nights for £80 including a hearty breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely to be able to take our dog with us in the bar and to stay, would definitely return.

4 of us (plus a little one) arrived here for lunch on Sunday afternoon. We received a very pleasant welcome from all of the staff and were actually offered the overflow room at the back which was great for us as there was plenty of room for a toddler to run around in! Staff were very attentive and whilst I... More

I ordered my food with chips but when the food arrived there was no chips, I was told by one the staff with studs in her lips that I never ordered any? And walked away. Well if that's the sort of rudeness your pub allows I will definitely won't be back.

A little disappointed with reception given to us and more particularly to larger groups coming in after us. Certainly nothing like the reception we received at the Top Ship.

We visited here a couple of weeks ago whilst walking the coast path. The location and pub itself were really great, but although my husband enjoyed his burger, my risotto was pretty awful. Having said that the staff were very friendly and I'm sure if I'd have ordered something else I would have enjoyed it more.
