Thank you for your lovely comments, most appreciated. Our pub has a great atmosphere especially when we have a good mix of locals, guests and tourists. Sorry about the mistake with your main course, offering a free desert was the least we could do and thanks for bearing with us. We hope to see again next time you visit Exmoor....

We stayed the night at a nearby B&B on my wife's birthday and had dinner here. It is a very lively 'locals' pub/hotel and the landlady and staff are very jovial and friendly. The meal was really delicious (compliments to the chef!) and the wine was good.
