First time here and really enjoyed the atmosphere, food and wine. The restaurant was excellent without being pretentious and had a genuine pub feel with lots of locals enjoying a beer. Service was first class.

We moved to Exmoor around 6 months ago and have visited woods now many times, it is defiantly the best place to eat in the area, the food is delicious, the ales are fantastic and local and the staff are helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is great and the pub is full of character. I would highly recommend.

Whilst staying at the Stags Head Farm B/B we were recommended to try this place. When you enter it's a bit like entering a 1940's pub with a log fire smouldering in the corner and local yokels propping up the bar..!! However don't be put off as the food is top quality with local produce and served by friendly and... More

Great atmosphere, great ales and excellent food although more restaurant like with prices that reflect this. The menu makes good use of regional (Exmoor) produce and is of good quality.

This was our fourth visit to Wood's and it was as good as ever. The food is always varied and interesting, great quality and delicious. Paddy and his team are really friendly and accommodating which makes for a relaxed atmosphere.

We travelled over an hour to get to this restaurant and it was worth it. Sally and Paddy, the owners, are lovely and give you a great dining experience. The atmosphere is lovely and you can go for a slap up meal or just for a few drinks. The food was incredible, definitely worth the prices, and we're planning on... More

We had been recommended Woods by some friends and it definitely lived up to expectations. Great atmosphere and delicious food and wine. Couldn't ask for more.

Having been here before I knew what to expect and in general terms neither I nor my four friends were disappointed. As it happened we all had sirloin steaks which were excellent although the accompanying chips and salad were less so. The desserts were also excellent. There is an extensive wine list, so perhaps a little disappointing that a pre-selected... More
