When we first arrived I was concerned about the road no need. The host did just that they were professional kind and thoughtful and knew their product. The rooms are tastefully decorated it was peaceful relaxing. To top it all the food is out of this world with local produce and depth of flavours only brought together by skilled hands.

We had a meal here a couple of weeks ago in July '14. We both feel it is one of the best meals we've ever had!
Service was friendly and attentive without being over the top. Environment was delightful (perhaps a tad dimly lit, but the old eyes may be failing). But the food - wow, excellent. Not only was the food we ordered excellent, but the canapes and amuse bouche were a pleasant surprise and just as good. The portions were spot on too, enough, but not too much - we left totally satisfied without leaving any food and without feeling stuffed. Spot on.
The price may have been more than we'd typically spend other than on a special occasion (which this wasn't), but less than we typically do spend on a special occasion. But boy, was it worth it.
Very surprised how quiet it was on a Fri eve. The locals don't know what they are missing.
My only complaint is that it's too far away for regular visits.

What could be improved? Inside, maybe slightly better lighting - that's it. Nothing else!
Outside - Maybe today's menu on display rather than a sample menu. I'm sure they are aware an adjacent wall needs a lick of paint (we had a drink outside so it was a little noticeable), also the garden although not at all unpleasant could be enhanced a little.
In honesty, if that's all I can suggest they have very little to worry about and none of the above would stop me going straight back next time we are in the area.
Thanks!!! An excellent end to our stay in Porlock.
