Went to this restaurant as I quite fancied the fish special but what a disappointment, only one waitress on duty and she was maxed out took ages to be served our meal from our order being taken in fact other dinners got their meal before we did. I don't mind waiting a little but over 30 mins is a bit... More

Good, homecooked food but as a husband and wife team only menu very limited. Okay for every day meals but not for somewhere special.

We are very regular visitors to Porlock and always include at least one visit to the Lapsewood where we have never had a poor meal. The venison casserole is one of the favourite choices and the fruit pies are to die for!! So nice to find somewhere where good home cooking is on offer and not chips with everything! Keep... More

We were recommended to try The Lapswood by our hosts at Myrtle Cottage we are very grateful as the food and service was first class. If they have have venison on the specials don't hesitate it's wonderful.

Food was pedestrian, uninspiring and poor quality. Atmosphere was like a cafe. We couldn't recommend it.

We had an enjoyable meal. The food was wholesome and honest. It was cooked well with he veg crispy and tasty. The chicken breast was huge! The salmon hit the spot. Good service with a warm welcome.

We ate here twice and really enjoyed the meals which were home cooked with local produce. The coq au vin was absolutely lovely. Jan is very friendly and welcoming and is a gem at keeping everybody happy even at the busiest of times. We felt the food was good value for money too. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

We always make sure we eat at Lapsewood where the food is all home cooked and excellent value for money. Jan always makes everybody welcome and Paul is a first class chef. The food is freshly cooked and Paul only uses fresh local produce. His Pork Chops are to die for!! This is a very warm and welcoming restaurant and... More
