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

My family and I have been visiting Lapsewood for a good number of years and it never disappoints. It is has the best home cooked food in the area and we always receive a warm friendly welcome. The evening roast and homemade pie is always a must. There is normally an evening special as well - the Horn and Prawn... More

We were advised that this was a good place to get home cooked food and it did not disappoint. It is run by a husband and wife team and they are amazing. She runs front of house and he does the cooking. Everything we had was extremely good. My husband had the fish special (sea bass) and I had the... More

Recommended by Myrtle Cottage owners, this small restaurant was full within an hour of opening, surely a recommendation in itself. Excellent cuisine - the venison casserole is an absolute must. Vegetables beautifully cooked. An energetic and incredibly efficient hostess. A brilliant evening out.

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

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
