We were on one of our walking trips. Not yompers - so using the West Somerset Railway we got off at Blue Anchor and walked across the fields to Washford just in time for lunch. There were cows on the fields so we ended up hot and muddy not looking our best! We knew that the pub had changed hands recently, we were welcomed and had really nice crunchy baguettes. The other half was tempted to try the New Zealand cider but took advantage of a glass of Scottish bitter instead which he voted "very palatable" (he had another half). There were seats outside but as there were roadworks opposite we stayed inside in the shade. This is a roadside inn on a bend so easily passed by but we were glad we stopped for lunch.

Pulled in to The Washford Inn on our way back from a day at Lynmouth. Have to confess, was not sure from first impressions as we pulled in to an empty car park but, with 8 hungry people including 4 children, we went in to see what was on offer.
We were greeted with a friendly and warm welcome. We chose from a traditional Pub grub menu and wow, great food, great prices, great service. They were very happy to split a adults portion of the hunters chicken into 2 child's portions and they were huge! The kids then got a free I've cream, even if they hadn't ordered from the children's menu.

Would highly recommend and will be back next time we are in the area

The management - Dee & Steve - give you a very warm welcome and do their utmost to make your stay as good as possible. We have stayed here for a number of years and enjoy it. The food is good, the accommodation is good and the prices are reasonable. What more due you want?

Room Tip: Book a room at the rear overlooking the railway rather than at the front facing the road.

booked a 2nt groupon deal for £89 1 x dinner, b&b. we were really pleased - we were given the family room which was large & spacious. the hotel decor was really nice, light & airy corridors with tasteful wall art. the room decor was good, the only picky point was bubbled lino in one small area of the bathroom - neither here nor there really. the food was typical pub grub but done with care. really enjoyed the breakfasts & lasagne & lunchtime cheese & pickle on a slightly warm & crispy baguette. the service was excellent - Craig & his team were friendly & couldnt do enough for us. Les behind the bar was a gem. the friday we were there was a total washout so we stayed in the bar, drank g&t's, played cards & had a great time. nearly forgot the chef who is a great guy. all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & recommend it. dont expect a swanky hotel but if u want a comfortable well priced stay then its for u.

We booked for 2 nights and were not disappointed. Our room was clean and comfortable with the usual tea making facilities, mini toiletries were also included. However, there was no wardrobe for our clothes only a rack with a couple of hangers. Not a problem for a couple of nights but would be had it been a longer stay. Our room was overlooking the railway line but not disturbed by trains as not running as out of season. Trains only run during the day when the season starts however. The staff were really friendly and welcoming (thanks Les, Dee & Steve) and nothing was too much trouble. My husband said his meals were lovely but I am vegetarian so menu a bit limited. I have never eaten so much for breakfast after the first morning we had to get them to cut the quantity down (can't bear waste). We had some lovely walks around the area and Dunster village is worth a visit, very quaint village around a castle. A really enjoyable stay and we look forward to going back again.

The warmth of the welcome and the personalities of the management team are unfortunately insufficient to overcome the shortcomings of the facilities provided, As has been said by other reviewers the beds are awful - an Indian Fakir would baulk at the mattresses in rooms one and two Room one has a double bed but not room enough for two bedside cabinets. The food is plentiful and hot and like all other encounters with staff presented with a friendly face. There are four Real Ales on the bar, Wifi was a mystery with the widely advertised service not available and that not advertised just available. Dee to the rescue again.
However there is no substitute for a good nights sleep. Best wishes to Steve and Dee who are retiring at the end of the 2014 season.

Room Tip: Take your own mattress!

What can I say, I loved it, loved it, loved it. Dee and Steve the managers are so welcoming and friendly you feel as if you've known them for years and she makes a gorgeous beef curry. The surrounding areas/towns were gorgeous dainty quaint and quirky and so very pretty with Christmas lights everywhere especially porlok and duster. The back of the inn overlooks a steam railway line. It is a proper family friendly pub. We stayed the weekend but could have stayed longer. Full cooked breakfast in the morning was lovely also. They do a fab fresh carvery on Sunday as we'll. would definitely recommend especially as they are currently doing a deal 2 nights for 2 including breakfast and a three course meal each on one night for 89 pound or 3 nights for 2 including breakfast and a three course meal each for 119 pound
