This was my second visit to Woods and both trips have been excellent. The food was brilliant on both occasions which included all 3 courses on both trips. The staff were brilliant and very attentive especially the young lad behind the bar. The cider and beer tasted very clean and crisp. This is a... read more

Paddy, the landlord, goes out of his way to ensure good times are had by all who visit this hostelry. Half pub, half bistro - a perfect night out on Exmoor. Very accomplished cooking and a good, value for money wine list.

Definitely a must when you're in Exmoor and on my top 10 for England. faultless service and very personal and... More

It's been a couple of years but our recent visit confirmed this is as good as ever. We enjoyed a starter of bresaola and scallops presented beautifully and cooked to perfection. The lamb was sublime and the pork dish was equally well received. A wine list of extraordinary length too but in parts fairly priced. Staff all friendly and polite.... More

Recently returned to Woods on a stay in Somerset. It's our 5th visit and we thought , if anything, the food was even better. The cooking is first class and presentation and attention to detail excellent. The staff went out of their way to find us a bottle of wine which wasn't on the list, which was just what we... More

The staff were lovely and very friendly, the menu choice was great and the wine list is fab. We weren't disappointed with either food or drink choices, everything was lovely and we would highly...
