Booked a Saturday night here based on an offer my wife got being a PIPS member. First of all this is a fantastic location. The views from the pub are some of the finest on Exmoor and worth the trip alone. My wife had booked the room based on an email received from PIPS pubs offering half price accomodation. Mark emailed back saying his team had booked us a "loverly room". Having looked at the website and stayed here before we were very excited as the rooms look loverly. There were only two rooms booked in advance that night, ourselves and a journalist who perhaps understandibly was given the best room gratis. Our room was tastefully decorated but was facing the rear right on the road, with a dual aspect view just of the road, complete with road noise. It`s hardly the M5 but was disappointing in view of the other available rooms and their opportunity to show them off to use as we do holiday in this area many times during the year. There were two other rooms taken as walk up business during the night. I guess at half price it is a little rich to moan but we were a bit sad about this choice when all other rooms bar one were available at the time of arrival. The recovery occurred during the evening meal - chateaubriand for two was exquisite accomapanied by a very reasonable bottle of red.The restaurant was superb and a credit to the place and a good atmosphere.Breakfast was equally excellent but it was interesting to see that the jounalist who had stayed the night before was asked twice if the breakfast was ok and the other three tables including ours were not...but hey it`s all publicity...we enjoyed it but would rather have given it the five stars it should be. We will try it again though and next time I am sure it will be five.
