This truly is a superb little restaurant and bar, the food is to die for, the wine list is out of this world, the fine ales are well kept and the local cider is well just lush :)) I'm not going to write a long review as you just need to get down here and try one of the country's... More

Pub/bistro/dining room atmosphere, very informal (jeans not out of place). Country pub decor with open fire and hunting nick-knacks as is appropriate for Exmoor. Went on a Monday night at 7.00 and was busy with plenty of diners in the restaurant and others at the bar. Food was absolutely superb best we have had for a long while when eating... More

First visit today, and everything spot on. Lovely choice of food, amazing wine list, and great to have so much choice by the glass. Light first courses, omelette Arnold Bennett and goats cheese salad, both very tasty. Puddings excellent as well. Recommend highly but be sure to book.

We hit on this place by chance and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. There was a warm and friendly pub atmosphere with lots of drinkers at the bar. One can eat either in the restaurant or the bar - the menu applies in both. The food was great but be warned that portions are not large. I really enjoyed my main... More

We stay in Dulverton 4 times a year and always eat at Woods. I usually ring about a week in advance as my wife loves "Creme Brulee" and the chef makes some up especially for her. Needless to say, they are the best you will ever taste. Paddy (The Owner) really has found a winning formula because the restaurant is... More

We have recently been to Woods for the second time for Sunday lunch and yet again it seriously impressed! The Roast Beef is mouth wateringly good and the atmosphere is perfect, it is rare to find some where you can eat such good food in such a relaxed and friendly environment. A real treasure. We will be back with out... More

We ate at Dulverton last night (Friday 28th). The food was stunning, wine list even more impressive and the service was faultless. It offers the luxury of Michelin star quality in a relaxed atmosphere without the pretence. We had a wonderful evening that was very reasonably price given the quality of the food and would certainly recommend it. Thank you... More

I have eaten here several times over years and always been very impressed with the food, the choice, the quality, and the wine list I have never been disappointed in anyway. Some of the best food I have eaten in a restaurant anywhere and some of the best wine all at reasonable prices. Even the service is of a high... More
