We visited The Culbone today for lunch with my mother father and brother in law. On arrival we were greeted by the friendliest most hospitable and helpful landlord I have ever met. We were made to feel really welcome including our 10 month old puppy...More

We popped in, hoping to get a table for a quick bite to eat. Wow! Such a warm and friendly welcome, and such an enticing menu - an excellent selection of good pub food. I could have ordered anything! We ended up having 3 courses...More

Beautiful place with beautiful views. Food all freshly made and a great choice on the menu. Worth the slightly inflated prices.

The location and setting of this fairly remote restaurant is idyllic, in particular the approach through the moors. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff are friendly. Portions are very generous and well presented and the price levels are reasonable. Music nights are available...More

We arrives late Friday evening looking for food. The Owner couldn't have been more helpful, going into the kitchen himself and cooking chips & lasagna. Very good quality and good ales. It was good enough to bring us back the next night for a meal...More

So to get the location issue out of the way. Tripadvisor has two entries for the Culbone in its database. The first is this one for the restaurant and the second is for the hotel aspect of the business (same business / same location). The...More

Relax and unwind while you enjoy the stunning views from our peaceful bedrooms, and outside dining area. The seasonal views of the Valley and Moors are breathtaking (the coastal mist adds real magic to the landscape). Lush green in the spring and summer and full of character and action in autumn and winter. Partridge, pheasant and deer are our companions in the milder months. Staying at The Culbone is a great way to experience life on Exmoor.
