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

Dear Libby, Thank you for your review and helpful comments. We were pleased to hear that your other party members enjoyed their substantial lunch time meals. For the halloumi dish we have discussed the issue with our chefs and have made changes which I hope will meet your expectations, both in quality, quantity and price.

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

Have been to this restaurant several times both for lunch and dinner. Lunch time it is a very quiet place to eat, busier in the evenings.

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.

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your Sunday lunch, especially the Fennel ice cream. It is very unusual, but like you said it does work. Sundays do tend to be one of our busiest day of the week, and booking is always recommended. All of our staff are trained to provide a great service whether... More

I ate at this restaurant whilst staying at the hotel and found it great. The service was great and the food very tasty. The attached bar is also very welcoming and has a well stocked gantry.

Slightly more expensive than most of the local pubs, the Holcombe Inn offers and interesting range of food. We went there with BIL & SIL and everyone enjoyed their meal. Although it was very busy, the waiting time was about average for freshly cooked food.

Have been going to The Holcombe Inn for years. Been there in great good and average days. First visit for a while, the food is great, the staff friendly. My issue is the speed the food came out. We ordered, had our starter with in five mins. And our main within 20 of that. It felt very rushed. I thought... More
