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. The daily roast is outstanding value, with roast and new potatoes, three fresh vegetables and lashings of gravy. There is always a dessert pie of the day (go for apple and loganberry if it is on).

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

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.
