“A friendly welcome and nice snack”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We walked past the Lorna Doone Inn while trekking in Exmoor.

The welcome was friendly, and the cream tea was excellent.

“Really made welcome.”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Set in a romantic spot by the river in the Doone Valley. The restaurant/tearoom is idyllic. The staff are kindness personified. The cream tea is good value and really tasty, home made scones, jam and clotted cream. All shared with the little birds from the country hedgerows surrounding it. Could of stayed all day.

“All change!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Visited here over the bank holiday weekend, last time we were here the place was an overpriced deli type thing; well what a difference a year makes! A really nice homely feel pub/restaurant with a very reasonably priced menu with lots of lovely options - my wife had the fish pie and is still raving about it now!
The new owners are a young friendly couple who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and make sure you thoroughly enjoy your visit, the location as always is stunning and well worth the visit.
