The Best !

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... read 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...

Anyone on holiday in north Exmoor, eg Lynmouth and around, I can happily recommend the Fox and Goose in the village of Parracombe. Doesn't look much from the outside, but inside is a cosy and friendly typical Exmoor pub/restaurant - lots of antlers on show etc. But the food and service was well above average, and above our expectations (family...

Nothing fancy, just a village boozer in Parracombe run by a friendly young couple but where the food is a notch up on what you might expect from such a place. Good value too.

Very decent chalk board menu with lots of local ingredients. Some decent ales on tap and a nice range of single malts. A little let down by sloppy service, we persevered and enjoyed our meal but others got bored with waiting and walked out...
