We’re regional South West finalists for ‘Best Pub’ in the Countryside Alliance awards 2020!

Review from Exmoor Magazine


Well – it was fantastic!

My family and I – plus my dog – came for lunch and it was utterly delicious. All seven of us loved it. The welcome was warm, the service brilliant and the food was fantastic. Definitely up there with the best pub roasts I have ever had. SUCH a nice treat to be able to order roast chicken (because it was free range) – and it was very tasty indeed. Everything was piping hot in a freshly cooked way, nothing was overdone. For starters my mum and I had whitebait which were really tasty and fresh tasting and the sticky toffee pudding (not sure how on earth we squeezed it in) was divine. The dog was made to feel very welcome and slept happily under the table. We will be back!
