The Crown is a nice, traditional Exmoor pub.
We ate in the bar, rather than the formal restaurant area, so that we could bring our dog in with us.
Although it was rather noisy (some lively local characters downing their pints), we had a good time.
Excellent, prompt and very friendly service.
The real surprise was the food.
The stake & ale pie and the fillet were both magnificent! This is pub food that puts many other pubs to shame. Superb, home-cooked, English food.
A pint of Exmoor Gold turned out to be the perfect accompaniment.
Also worth exploring is the nice riverside walk along public footpaths, directly opposite the Crown - walk past the school, follow the signs.
The Crown is a a real credit to Exford!
