We booked a table at the bar area for our last night in the area and were impressed to see that there was a bar just for whiskies - 250 of them at least! It is a really lovely country pub with a lively atmosphere. Staff were overall friendly - although one was stressed as some of the locals were... More

We stayed at the hotel and had several dinners and breakfasts there. We found the service to be good and the food excellent. Lots of local meat and beers on offer. The bar is very popular with the locals so can get busy. The food is not served as quickly as a fast food outlet but you are there to... More

The scones were some of the best we've had. The service some of the slowest. So would be happy to suggest you a top here but only if time is on your side!

We can only apologise for the slow service, that is not the norm but we can only assume you arrived at what was an exceptionally busy time - the last few weeks have been very busy here on Exmoor! We are simply please to hear that the quality of the food made up for the wait! More

Firstly, sorry to have to say this as we have been visiting the Exmoor White Horse Inn in the autumn for many years now, often with friends, to enjoy what always was an OUTSTANDING home cooked carvery, both in terms of quality, quantity and value, not to mention the wonderful welcome from the Chef, or 'Carver' Our last two visits...

Firstly, I didn't actually eat in the restaurant, I ate in the bar; but I'm assuming the menu and the food is the same. Apologise if not. The bar has more oak beams than HMS Victory. Full of old photographs of hunting gentlemen and other hunting memorabilia. The bar menu is comprehensive and reasonably priced. I had two evening meals... More

We went for the carvery but not much choice of vegetables, green beans, carrots and swede. No roast parsnips, just roast potatoes and mashed potatoes. The only friendly team member we meet was Vince, he was very jolly and made us feel very welcome. The bar man made us feel it was a problem to serve us.

Visited for Sunday lunch. I was glad we booked as it was very busy. They have plenty of seats inside but also outside in their colourful garden overlooking the River Exe. They do a traditional carvery on a Sunday for £9.95 or you can choose from their extensive menu. I had the carvery which was delicious and we also had... More
