Worth a visit

Nice village pub, friendly with good food; beers good too! Dog friendly, plenty of room, really good sandwiches and the sauté potatoes are excellent value for money. Having come from another local hostilely which didn't appear to want custom this was a very pleasant surprise.

Had pizza to take out. Fairly long wait and pizza was horrendous. Toppings at £1 each was a joke - I could barely see them at all. Cheese was processed and slid off the base which was soggy and wet.

Have been visiting this pub for over 20 years, and it is still my absolute favourite. A real Exmoor pub, and in my humble opinion, The Best, for miles around. The menu covers every occasion from the local fish, cooked superbly, to the beautiful Steak and Ale pie, ( with the best pastry ever ! ) to the gorgeous Bread... More

We popped in for lunch after a trip on the little railway. It was quiet when we got there, but soon got busier so it is obviously quite popular. Our food was lovely and our 2 year old was made to feel welcome. The interesting interior and Exmoor themed paraphernalia on the walls gives the pub a great atmosphere. We... More

we come here whenever we are in North Devon, about 3 times a year, and the food , like the pub itself , is spot on in a pleasantly understated way. Serious cooking skills without the gastro pub glitz, whilst not cheap, you can taste their investment in great ingredients rather than what some may consider an overdue redecoration. Personally...
