We had a lovely stay at the Holcombe Inn. Our bedroom was delightful with great attention to detail including bath robes, sparkling and still water and fresh milk in the room. Fabulous breakfast and evening meal!

Generally speaking the food was of a high standard, although there were some problems with food coming cold out of the kitchen, particularly the fish and chips.The meat on offer, beef and lamb, was well cooked and enthusiastically devoured.One of our party, on the first of our two nights, had a starter of goat's cheese, which was accompanied by bread...

We had drinks, dinner and breakfast at the hotel. The service was well timed and friendly and both dinner and breakfast were of a really high standard (see my review of the hotel). They take good food seriously and there is a lot of attention to detail.

Popped here for a bit of impromptu lunch with some friends. Choice of food and service all as good as usual, although some playing around with the menu required to find something gluten free and vegetarian - opted for the 'large' halloumi salad with a side order of chips. When it arrived I honestly thought it was a side order,... More

Exmoor venison was beautifully presented, tasted as good as it looked. The service was quick and friendly whilst still professional. There is a good selection of drinks and all in very pleasant surroundings. Breakfast was good too, no complaints.

The Inn is a real old world country pub with oak beams and grand fireplaces. I recommend booking a table as they were busy mid week and I am sure busier at the weekend. The bar area is very friendly and welcoming, the staff courteous and well informed. I had the salt and pepper white bait with garlic dip. It... More

First class Sunday lunch. Try the sweet fennel ice cream - it works! Los Tres Curas wine also slipped down nicely. Good service despite the staff having to deal with a packed dining room.
