Tasty food at a good price

Lapsewood produces really tasty mid-range food. It is ideal for holiday makers, especially families and for special occasions. Friendly service. I wish it was open all the year and not just April to October

We visited the Lapsewood restaurant last weekend whilst staying in Porlock. The meal was lovely, beautifully cooked and presented, and the service was very good, friendly and efficient. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a nice meal in pleasant surroundings.

I last ate here about 25 years ago and I don't think the menu or décor has changed since! Perhaps it is deliberate to keep the place in a time warp to make it stand out from the other places around. It definitely does that but it isn't anything special. Just plentiful portions of ordinary cooking without frills. I've looked... More

We made this restaurant our last evening dining. So pleased we did nothing else compared! The host was wonderful she helped with our choices gave recommendations on wine to go with the food and was chatty and helpful. She and her husband have ran this restaurant for 35 years I think she said. The food was superb! Tasty and filling... More

Cosy, slightly old fashioned little restaurant. Don't know how the one serving lady coped on the busy evening we went in, but she did. My prawn starter was good, but my husband thought his mushrooms were a bit ordinary and there isn't much choice of starters. My venison casserole was lovely, very tasty and husband enjoyed his lamb. Doesn't take... More

We took two of our grand daughters to Lapsewood Restaurant as they came with us to Porlock during the school holidays. We had eaten here before so expectations were quite high. It was such a lovely evening out and, I pleased to say, our expectations were exceeded. The girls had difficulty in choosing their meal from the excellent menu, but... More
