A really lovely evening out

We booked into Woods primarily because it was open in a Monday and local to Bampton where we are staying. What a wonderful surprise, therefore, that a somewhat expedient reservation turned out to be opportunity for a really first-class evening out.

Thank you, Woods! We found this place through Tripadvisor the same day and it really did live up to its praise online. My boyfriend and I spent our anniversary here last week and we were delighted with the food, wine, interior, atmosphere, hustle bustle and service. It was on the more expensive side; approaching the 'fine dining' label, but it... More

Enjoyed a thoroughly l pleasant lunch experience here in the little gem of a place that is Dulverton. My wife and I both had the Hake and Chips - absolutely delicious. Lilah the Pug enjoyed being out of the sun. Well done Woods - well worth the drive.

I live in Dulverton and have been going to Woods since it opened. It is an exceptional place, catering for all - whether you want just a drink, a pub meal or fine dining. The staff are very friendly and helpful and Paddy's (the owner) knowledge of wine is second to none. The more formal (yet still relaxed) restaurant area... More

Below average for a place with a rosette claiming to be a restaurant, good pub food but no quality restaurant I'm afraid to say

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 5/5 without a doubt.

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.

Small but very nice restaurant with top quality food of gastronomic level. Beautifully decorated dining room. The food was absolutely top, and the wine list is fantastic (Bonny Doon's Cigare Volant !). Best Eton Mess I ever had, absolutely fabulous. Definitely a must when you're in Exmoor and on my top 10 for England. faultless service and very personal and... More
