Set in the idyllic village of Wheddon Cross, a short drive from both the coast and Exmoor, this beautiful pub and restaraunt is family run by Eric and his daughter Caz, they are always pleased to see us and nothing is to much trouble, the food, beer and accommodation exemplary. As a small team of Off Road motorcyclists, we stay...

We stopped here after a long tiring day of sight seeing and were welcomed by the manager. We were seated in what we thought was a lovely area...a room with a set of four tables in it. our orders were taken fairly promptly and our starters were also brought fairly quickly. All good so far, but then the mains were...

Called in as I was walking the Coleridge Way with my dog. Enjoyed a lovely cup of tea and super potato and leek soup. They packed me up some freshly made ham sandwiches to take away and didn't charge me for the side salad and chips which should have come with them. I didn't want them but expected to pay....

The staff welcomed us when we turned up for a meal and showed us to a table in the dining area where a log fire was burning. There was a good choice on the menu, including an excellent Carvery and the service was prompt and efficient. We'd definitely eat in this pub again when in the area.

What a perfect little slice of the Somerset countryside... this Inn in the quaint village of Wheddon Cross epitomises my idea of a British country pub!... We were made to feel welcome as soon as we entered, the locals obviously love the place also. The food was fantastic in itself with the added bonus of a Carvery to suit all...

Visited this pub on Exmoor after Stag watching on Sunday with Red Deer Safaris. We had warm welcome and sat drinking coffee and reading Sunday papers and were invited to go into the carvery early if we wanted as it was ready. Nice carvery with excellent local beef and lamb, decor old fashioned but efficient friendly servers. Would return if...

Stayed here when doing Landrover West Country driving experience. Great pub food. Very friendly & helpful staff. Made all the better by the local company who couldn't have helped more when a friends car broke down. Definitely will stay again.

What a delightful pub? We were driving through this village heading towards a national trust place. We popped in and asked if we could take our dogs in too, they said no problem. It was a Sunday and they had carvery, perfect! The landlord even checked that their customers were happy - we certainly were. It was very busy which...

Decided to eat here because of recommendations by both owners of accommodation we stayed at, and the comments made by previous guests. Definitely not disappointed with wonderful food, reasonably priced with excellent service. They were also very happy for us to take our dog into the restaurant. Would highly recommend this restaurant, but would advise you book, since the pub...

We were staying nearby and this was recommended in our farmhouse literature as a great place to eat so we decided to go to the carvery on Wednesday. It is very popular and we were glad we booked. Three of the four of us had the carvery (one a veggie option) and the other had pork in apricot sauce. The...
