A flying visit to Porlock and we ate here both nights. The highlight was local cod with courgettes provencale and fresh vegetables, but the venison casserole scored 10 out of 10, as did the lamb roast and apple and damson pie with proper custard. Brilliant cook in the kitchen and a friendly face front of house - the perfect combination.... More

Good homely food, good portions. Recommended by a local, quite rightly, always a good sign. Good value.

Lovely food well cooked, the only downside was it was a little quiet that particular night. Would definitely go again though.

From outside and within, the decor belies the spectacular standard of mouth-watering home cooking awaiting you. Go with a large appetite as thankfully you will find none of your modern titchy, surrealist, messed-about-with plates of food here. Piping hot, freshly cooked "know-what-you're-eating" roasts, steaks, fish, etc., etc., etc. Equally tempting desserts which change depending on local availabilities, could include home-made... More

The food is freshly cooked, of excellent quality in what I would describe as British home cooked style. Roasts, casseroles, pies and proper puddings with custard! The wines are reasonably priced a are the meals themselves. The four of us went twice out of three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it

We had this lovely restaurant suggested by the B& B we stayed at and we were definitely not disappointed!!!! My husband had the venison casserole and it was wonderful and I had the sea bass special which was cooked just perfectly. We couldn't have been more pleased. Good local beer as well. I had been warned off the 'strong' Exmoor... More

We have been visiting Porlock for many years but have never visited Lapsewood before because from the outside it looks a little old fashioned. However over Easter we booked for Saturday evening. Well you know you've done well when the locals are eating there. Run by a husband and wife team she is front of house and he cooks with... More

Lapsewood is open in the summer and serves homestyle evening meals. Everything is cooked well, portions are excellent and the service is welcoming and friendly. It is ideal for families. Really good value for money

We ate here whilst staying last August at a B&B just around the corner (The Ship; also very good). Very friendly service, food great and portions generous! In particular the fish I had (sea bass) was cooked very well and tasted lovely. Would recommend to anyone staying locally.
