I asked for some newspapers to read and they appeared within a few minutes, once I had been seated at a table of my choice. The staff... More

I had a business trip and was made welcome to use the carpark for a stayover. Next time I will come down in my camper as it is a great britstop place. The warm, welcoming ambiance, good ale, fantastic owners and staff. And great local produce on the menu imaginatively, and skillfully delivered. A great find, well worth seeking out.

We phoned to check what time they served until and were warned they were running low on certain items - but we made it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Between us we had the roast beef and the nut roast followed by puddings. Can't wait to go... More

It is situated in the Blackdown Hills on the Devon/Somerset border. The pub has spectacular views as it looks across the Culm Valley. We offer outstanding food from the restaurant from our ever-changing special board and our menu. We also have a selection of local beers.
