Reviewed 24 August 2012

We had an excellent evening meal. Delicious food from varied menu, attractively presented with friendly service. Reasonable prices. We returned the next afternoon after a long blustery walk on Exmoor. The kitchen was closed but we were delighted to be served with a delicious cream tea. We hope to return again.

14 days in Devon and without doubt our best meal. Strange decor and relaxed service but bloody good food in a child friendly pub. Only gripe was overcharging on the kids meals but brownies to die for and overall not bad given we were pining for Greece

This was one of those places that are recommended to you and you know you would confidently recommend to anyone. The room was excellent. Newly done. Great modern bathroom. The food for both dinner and breakfast was lovely. A real culinary find for anyone really interested in good food. The beer and wine selection was equally great. Nice touches like homemade biscuits in your room. I am very picky and rarely would give an all round excellent, but this one was well deserved.

Room Tip: Only 2 to choose from but book it if you can.

This pub is an absolute gem. We arrived early evening without a booking, having seen a sign on the highway, and were warmly welcomed. Our room was stylish, spotless, comfortable, well appointed, even luxurious, with a huge bathroom. Dinner in the well-appointed dining room was excellent, our breakfast delicious. The staff are friendly and efficient. The best B&B we found in 15 days touring Southern England and Wales

A wonderful little country pub where all the staff were extremely friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. We stayed for four nights to enable some walking in the wonderful Exmoor countryside. Our recently refurbished room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with plenty of storage available, and an en-suite shower bathroom. Tea and cafetiere coffee were provided with fresh milk in a vacuum flask, and each day of the stay we were also delighted to be left a tin of freshly home made shortbread and flapjack which was delicious.
Breakfast was excellent. Cereal, granola, fresh fruit (including rhubarb) yogurt, toast with butter and jam, and a choice of full cooked as well if you so wished.
We chose to eat in the pub each evening where a varied menu offered choices of Fish, Steak, Venison, Lamb or vegetarian dishes, and were of a very generous quantity, (we never managed 3 courses). All food was locally sourced where possible, and I can highly recommend the ice-cream. My other half worked his way across all four of the hand pumped beers on offer during our stay and I tried the local cider all of which were excellent.
There is parking available opposite the pub, and there is also a small outside area at the rear where the river runs alongside.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms available so book early.

I am never likely to find a better B&B. The room I was given was large, comfortable and stylish to the point of luxury with a shower room fitted out to a remarkable standard. The view of the village from the bay window was of the "Under an English Heaven" variety No UHT milk in cartons here but the fresh variety kept cool in a vacuum flask with home made biscuits as well. A extraordinarilyly good fruit salad with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc. kicked off breakfast and I wish I could make coffee as well as the Fox & Goose can! The stately progress of the "full English" ended with toast and home made (needless to say) preserves.

There are not many rooms here so best of luck in getting one!
