Lovely food and warm cosy atmosphere, booked for my wife as a birthday surprise, she was delighted with the result. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and even put a candle in her desert as I had mentioned that it was her birthday. Great value for money will certainly be back!!

What a find! This is a lovely little place. You must book to avoid being disappointed! It took us three nights before we could get in! The food is spot on and the staff are extremely friendly and professional. Nothing is too much trouble. The selection on the menu is regularly changed and is always that little bit different. Our...

This restaurant has to be a favourite. From the moment we walked in I knew it was going to be good. The traditional bar set up and open fire gave it a warm friendly feel. The menu catered for all ages in our party (from 2.5yrs to 72yrs), the wine list was pretty extensive too. The food that arrived was... More

My wife and I were last at Woods in 2007 - so it's particularly pleasing to note that if anything, it's got even better. I love the ambience here, very relaxed and in no way pretentious. The food we had was excellent (the lamb was superb) and the completeness of the wine list and owner's advice to go with it... More

We have recently returned from 3 glorious days in Dulverton, and needless to say our evening meals were at Woods. The excellent standard of food in this establishment NEVER changes, and their Creme Brulee is to die for. The "Rib-eye" steak was cooked to perfection, and needless to say the place was always full. If you want the best meal... More
