Two days in Porlock

Quiet hotel, long walk to the sea, lovely restaurant in the High Street where I had two evening meals. Second or third visit to the town(twice on foot, once by car).

Unpretentious, honest grub served in huge quantities. It's a bit like walking into a time capsule from about 1972 but that adds to the enjoyment. Great place. Seemed to be a lot of locals in the night we were there which is always a good sign.

My fiancé and I had a great meal here. Fantastic home cooked food and a lovely atmosphere. The quiz cards on the tables were also a nice touch

Lapsewood is our chosen place to eat when we zip through Porlock a few times a year. Really good home cooking at a sensible price with a warm welcome too. The fresh hake was five star cooking.

We have ate in most of the eateries in Porlock, great food & drink here, Only minor issue is that they don't take card (need to rush to cashpoint mid meal) could be avoided with big sign or comment on arrival. Is worth the hassle as great food.

A shortish menu because everything is home-cooked and home-prepared. We had a delicious venison casserole with lots of freshly cooked veg. Good for those like me who don't like foams and smears and piped music. Booking advised in high season.

We had a couple of meals here during our recent stay and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the friendly service. The prices are higher than the Castle Hotel over the road and as I am always looking for good, cheap food I was a little unsure about trying it. It was recommended to us by... More
