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

This is the first review that I have submitted. I am generally a patient customer; tolerant of 'off nights' and reluctant to express dissatisfaction. However, reading so many complimentary reviews, I feel compelled to advise future potential customers of our experience - which I see is not unique! Pleasant first impressions were short lived. We waited an age before our... More

We were on holiday nearby recently and visited Woods for an extremely enjoyable evening, based on a local recommendation - great food, wonderful service, amazing wine knowledge, etc, etc. We were so impressed we broke our rule of not visiting a holiday pub twice, and were as impressed on the second visit as the first - quite superb. No wonder... More

Venue of many great meals in the past and deserved accalades, but is complacency creeping in? Restaurant half empty friday night?Service for drinks had to be jiffied twice so we could drink our wine with the designated course. Food OK but not great, constructive comments replied with arrogant and patronising chef's comments. There are ways of dealing with customers remarks:... More

Visited Woods for the 1st time on Saturday 22nd Nov. The food, service and atmosphere was superb. The duck was amazing as was the cheese course, complimented by the owner's recommended port which was fantastic. On my next visit, I'll choose my food & allow the Sommelier to recommend a complimentary wine! In summary, if you like good local food... More
