This is an excellent place to base yourself for a few days exploring Exmoor. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the menu is varied and the food is very good. We ate here for four nights in a row and did not have a poor meal. If you spend any time in the bar and engage with the regulars, you... More

We stopped for lunch on a Sunday Times recommendation and were not disappointed. We had delicious Saddle of Lamb cutlets with a rump and a Whole Grilled Plaice with buttered prawns. Both dishes were of the very best quality and cooked to perfection. Dessert consisted of Home made ice cream with a fruit compote, this I would highly recommend. We... More

Everything that others write about this Exmoor Gem is correct. It's so good that I'm tempted not to write a review at all because this will only encourage others and make it more difficult for us to return! And yes, it probably IS the most photographed inn on Exmoor and it deserves to be because its setting in the village... More

Our room was the four poster suite, number 4. The bed is huge. All amenities were excellent. View was beautiful. It looked over the village green and a little babbling brook. A stone bridge crossed the brook and took you onto the green. At night the local church was lit up and looked beautiful. It was a delight to stay... More

The Royal Oak in Winsford is the heart of the village which itself is a little gem hidden in a beautiful Somereset Valley. We stayed in a local private cottage but ate at the pub three times for dinner in the bar area as we had our Labrador on holiday with us. We were all made to feel very welcome... More

Placed in a beautiful part of Exmoor, full of quaint cottages and little bridges is the Royal Oak which has been referred too as the most photographed pub in England. It is very beautiful and full of character inside and out. We kept to a small lunch, which was nice. From the look of the food coming out of the... More

We are staying locally at a great B&B (Stag's Head Farm) and on short notice got a table reserved for dinner on Friday evening....I would recommend anyone considering a visit to book in advance to avoid disappointment! The inn can only be described as picture perfect from the outside within the bautiful village of Winsford. The food menu is varied... More
