Visited twice in March for lunch both with friends and had a great two course lunch at a very reasonable price. Service was attentive and we were well treated. Would recommend.

totally spoilt this establishment, girl behind the bar could hardly speak any english and understood even less. wife wanted a white wine, she had the menu shoved under her nose to choose, after around 10 mins of looking for the choice girl came back and said that they did not have any, so we went to the royal oak

Stopped here for a bite after a walk at Sunday lunchtime. Sat outside which was not too busy although sitting right by the A39. Service, food and drink was fine. Enjoyed the olde worlde (1950s) display in the Porlock Hardware shop opposite. Restaurant crowd looked a little like a Conservativve Club outing.

Excellent wine. Fantastic service. Delicious food. Was a very memorable and enjoyable meal. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The food was the best I have had in a long time. Cannot recommend enough.

The Castle is closed and under new ownership. Rumour has it a wine bar and hotel will emerge. I'll be back to find out when it does!

Did not stay here (fortunately) but went for Sunday lunch today with a group of friends, whilst on a weekend away near Porlock. The proprietors were unfriendly and unwelcoming right from the minute they came to take our lunch order. When the food arrived and was placed on the table, one of the owners managed to splash me with hot... More
