Stopped off for Sunday lunch , stated on menu that it was a Sunday roast with lamb or beef , seasonal vegetables and real gravy . In our party of four we ordered three beef and one lamb the meals consisted of two slices of thin fatty meat two roast potatoes , the seasonal vegetable were one French bean , one carrot , one sprig of broccoli and a small piece of beet root the Yorkshire pudd was ok but the Real gravy was thin watery and tasteless , how they can justify charging £16 for this meal I do not know I have to say the staff were very friendly and polite and the restaurant is a high standard it's a shame the food does not Match.

Having read the rather lovely website, I was looking forward to the "individually designed bedrooms" and hearing from the "knowledgeable team".
The person who greeted us was perfectly nice, no introductions and we assumed that as she was the owner of Pip, she must also own the establishment. Dinner was tasty and well presented, but our cheese came straight from the fridge and without any explanation.
The bedroom (and the long dark corridor leading to it) needed acquainting with a cream cleanser and some bleach. The tea caddy was grubby and there were rings on the bedside table amidst the dust. We stayed on a special offer which meant the room price was very low - I'd have been upset if we'd paid the tariff rate. You need to tone down your website so that you under promise and over deliver.

Booked well in advance for Sunday lunch 1st June 2014, we both ordered the Mackerel fillet with salad leaves with horse radish sauce for starters, plenty of salad and beetroot, But very little sign of any Mackerel,then both ordered the Roast Beef with Yorkshire pudding, 2 small thin and fatty slices of beef with burnt Yorkshire pudding, 2 roast potatoes ( out of the freezer and not fresh ) thin cut pieces of carrot, swede, beetroot, in gravy, Did wonder at the time, that we was given Childs portions ? then for dessert my wife had the sticky toffee pudding with sauce, a piece of sticky toffee pudding about 50mm square in a Large pasta bowl, wow it looked impressive, my apple, raspberry with almond crumble served in a coffee cup, on the Up side, the staff was very friendly, Not that impressed with the Sunday lunch !!!!!!

We spent one night at The Culbone, which left me with very conflicted feelings about the place. The good points (and they are very good): a fabulous dining experience, with attentive staff and beautiful views. The meals were perfectly cooked. The staff were some of the best we have encountered, friendly and competent.
The downsides: a very mediocre room in need of repairs (peeling paint in the tiny ensuite, which also boasted a vinyl floor which had been "laid", not properly installed, and the smallest wash basin I have ever seen). The one bonus of the room was the very comfy bed. Both bedside lamps were burned out - one lamp needed to be replaced as it was not working at all. There was only a small valet-type hanger for hanging your clothes on. With very little effort, these "issues" could be corrected.
The breakfast, while tasty enough, was a bit on the small side. There were some prepackaged cereals to eat along with your choice of "fancy" breakfasts, but no toast, yogourt, etc. I expected a bit more in that department, considering the spectacular meal we had enjoyed the night before.
The Culbone is in an exquisite location in the middle of "nowhere" and it looks like they have some interesting special nights, like Spanish night, Greek night, etc. I wish we were going to be in the area so we could partake! I would adjust my expectations re: the room, though.

Stayed here last weekend for 2 nights. Weather was not the best, but we still had a very enjoyable time. Loved the location, especially as it is very near to the Doone Valley one of our favourite places. Room was good, comfy king size, clean and warm. Lovely walk -in shower. Ate in the restaurant both nights and highly recommend the food. Not the cheapest, but we thought value for money. Good quality and nice to see lots of local produce. Nice to be able to eat and drink to your heart's content then just head upstairs, no driving involved! Pleasant, obliging staff, attentive but not over the top. Would return.

Room Tip: We had room 4, overlooks the woods/moorland at the back.
