We spent a week in Dulverton and ate at Woods several times. All round excellent. Good food -ribeye steak in particular- very friendly service in a most welcoming and warm atmosphere. ine list is amazing which is why woods is the wine pub of the year for the last 7 years

We visited Woods on Saturday for my Husband's birthday. The food was lovely, the atmosphere was cosy and a good selection on the menu.

Stayed at a campsite nearby. Unproposing property from the outside. But the menu talked different. A touch of France is to be found here and an owner with an excellent knowledge of wines. Dulverton people you are soo lucky to have this little jewel in your town. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal here and had a bar meal a... More

Lunch at Woods with a friend was superb. On a cold winters day to be greeted by friendly staff and log fires is very homely, welcoming and takes you back in time. The food was excellent refined and wholesome. The attention to detail was lovely. Thank you.

One of our favourite places on Exmoor. Love to go for a pint (or one of the very good wines) or food on a special occasion. Excellent menus and food, worth the price tag.

Woods is 5 minutes walk from our home. We are so lucky to have this wonderful restaurant, wine bar and Pub so close by. There is always a lively atmosphere. Excellent food from interesting light lunches to more elaborate evening meals. A fabulous choice of wine and good selection of beers.

I can only reiterate what all the other punters have said about the place . The wife wanted to go somewhere to celebrate her 38th year of my capture so I decided on Woods (after reading a review in the Telegraph) . It is a charming rustic pub, the locals were very friendly, the young staff were a delight, nothing... More

This visit was booked for us last minute by the landlord of the B&B we were staying at. We weren't prepared for the amazing menu and the well stocked and splendid wine list. The staff were attentive but certainly not overly so. Delightfully friendly. The food was top quality and the desserts...oh the desserts! We demolished a bottle of good... More

Visited pub during Christmas week. A real pub with real fires. The landlord and staff were all extremely cheerful and helpful. They treat us like locals as did the locals as well. Great atmosphere. The food was out of this world. I had John Dory fillets and they were the best I had ever had. The Boxing Day Hunt outside... More

Visited for the first time 28/12/16 with friends who regularly go there for dinner. Friendly atmosphere, vast selection of wines plus does champagne by the glass. Menu was good and the food was excellent.
