The recommendation we received for this pub was just deserved. Friendly staff and great tasting pub classics.

Well worth a stop if your in the area.

Great setting, friendly welcome, couldn't fault food, was tasty and well presented. Live reasonably local so will visit again and recommend to friends. Keep up your high standards.

Liked the atmosphere and although busy, was friendly. Food quite pricey but good portions and worth the wait once ordered.

We visited the Black Venus whilst on holiday nearby. The food was great and it the pub was extremely well managed. We liked it so much we ended up visiting three times and met many other customers on holiday who regularly return. The manager was very hands on and very flexible, and that staff seemed happy and worked as a team. They don't take bookings and on our second visit they were very busy, but despite this a table was found for us within 20 minutes and we were served. We would definitely visit again should we be back in Exmoor.

Good food, friendly staff, much to warm inside. The heat is an issue. Deal with this. Not nice to eat in a sauna. Everything else was fine.
