Had lunch at this real little gem of a tea room. Beautiful setting in Exmoor, woods, and the most wonderful range of birds all around us !!! Convenient little stroll fm the car park. Ate toasted paninis which were lovely. Limited menu, but everything we saw and ate ourselves looked lovely. Friendly staff. Definitely to be recommended.
