this was the only place in town where there was tables free and understandably so! service was poor and the food inconsistent. we had the same starter and mine was overseasoned and my partners was bland. Overcooked veg with the main course. my fish was overcooked and soggy.. he had the steak (from Gerald David) which was expensive but good quality. we asked for rare and got medium-well. passed on the desserts. wine was poor quality and expensive with a mediocre range of beers. had to walk out in the rain to the cash point because the card machine didn't have a signal. we fought our way out through the very loud locals chain smoking outside.
a waste of money, the only good point was that we weren't stopping there.
it is a shame because this place could be something special. its the only hotel in a lovely town in Exmoor. This could be a top notch hotel and restaurant but needs a lot of tlc and interest
