I would say it's more of an interesting pub rather than a wine bar although it does excel in its selection of wines. But plenty of good real ale too and the food was better than average. The staff were very friendly and helpful, definitely the place to visit when in Dulverton

Absolutely delicious Sunday lunch, with the traditional mains costing £11.50 and a great and fairly-priced Albarino wine to savour. Our kids love the quirky interior, with lots of old wood and stuffed animals. Although the place is lovely on a warm September day it becomes absolutely magical once the chillier days have set in and there is the scent of... More

Before I came to Dulverton for a weeks holiday, I looked through Tripadvisor to pick out some good places to eat. On my list was Woods, with a question mark against it because I had read through all the average/ poor/ terrible reviews (as I always do). Well am I'm glad I took no notice of any of those! My...

Just wonderful! Helpful, fun staff where nothing is too much trouble. Delicious food and Paddy can select an interesting wine to go with your food without the fuss and pomp that can sometimes go with this. We always start our visits with a visit to Woods to get our break off to a lovely start. A trip to a Exmoor... More

Paddy's done it again (for the 5th time in a row). Best wine pub in England. The whole place is just amazing. The food is brilliant and what Paddy does'nt know about wine could easily be put on the back of a postage stamp. Whenever we are in Dulverton, our Mecca for an evening meal is Woods! There is just...

Walked off the central streets of this pretty little village into a warm and welcoming bolt hole just before the main church. The bar is suitably scruffy to make all feel welcome walkers, workers, passing tourists, then the restaurant goes up a level with a great menu at a fair price and a wine list to drool over. Seriously good... More

This Pub/Restaurant is a real find in the heart of Exmoor - booking is needed but well worth it - food is FAB, service and staff very friendly and helpful - and very good value for money. Also - it's consistent - we have been going there over several years now and never disappointed.

Woods was recommended by a friend and as first-time visitors to Dulverton, we probably wouldn't have decided to lunch in "woods" because the exterior looks like a typical pub rather than a restaurant. The interior is very "Exmoor" with all the hunting trophies on the walls - possibly not for sensitive vegetarians - but an enjoyable ambience for others. The... More
