Roast dinner £8.95, local venison casserole I think was £12.95? You don't feel ripped off, just well fed at a fair price. My meal was... More

Wonderful home cooked food, ate here twice during our weekend stay in Porlock. Would definately recommend the Coq au vin and Venison casserole. Pleasant atmosphere and great service.

Some places just get it right, and Lapswood is one such. Nothing pretentious, just delicious home cooking at sensible prices.

Just a short walk from "The Cottage" B&B we found this on our first night in Porlock and enjoyed the meals so much we went back each night for the remainder of our stay. The menu was varied and food was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. We will definitely be back again next time we are in Porlock.

Lots of specials to choose from, all cooked very nicely and served with a good selection of vegetables. It's just what you want after a long day's hiking. Nice wine list, and a good selection of beers. The best bit's the dessert: beautiful home cooked pies (ours - cherry and summer fruits, served with a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream... More
