The food has always been of a high standard whenever we have visited and the staff always helpful and welcoming. The wine cellar is one of the best, winning many awards. A top choice for a big night out and they allow well behaved dogs!

We go here a lot at lunchtime and we are never disappointed with the food, staff and atmosphere. However, If I had to make a criticism, it is the length of time from when the order for food is taken to the time it is served.

Always a real treat to catch up with friends at Woods. We have been here often, and can always guarantee a great meal. The atmosphere and setting is lovely, an authentic country feel. The staff are always pleasant and friendly. Well worth the trip to Dulverton.

Our large party of 20 were very lucky to find Woods. New Year's Day lunch was perfect, great food, service and atmosphere. The omelette Arnold Bennett was delicious.

This is our second visit to Woods. The first was in August and this time December 2014. The food is excellent, service great and atmosphere special. The locals mix well with visitors from outside Dulverton and the surrounding area. We were given a different glass of wine with each course, which had been expertly matched with each dish. Next time... More

Myself and 2 friends had lunch here today. We live 30 mins drive away and although it was a beautiful day it was freezing cold. As soon as we walked thru the door we were given a warm welcome and taken to our table. There were 2 lovely fires burning and it was cosy and we soon warmed up.The service... More
