A very good place to eat. Plenty of choice on the menu although we went for the carvery (which is on a Wednesday as well as on a Sunday) will definitely go back to try something else. Puddings also great as were the staff.

All ways made welcome nothing is to much trouble reasonable priced food and very good quality . They don't try and be all fancy and modern but they just do great honest food. Also a great selection of Real Ales

My son and I stayed here on a "boys weekend". We had a twin room which was large, very comfortable with en suite shower etc, very well looked after. The pub had a good local atmosphere with a good range of Exmoor beers. The food was excellent, really good value and freshly cooked. The breakfast was probably the best we've...

We stayed here with two other couples whilst walking the Coleridge Way. The Landlord was very friendly and helpful, to the extent of having collected our luggage for us from the previous night when the taxi that was booked failed to turn up. The rooms were pleasant, although the furnishing were a little tired. The bathroom was clean and comfortable,...

Arrived at the RBT today to an artic "welcome". We had our 2 well behaved dogs with us - it is totally acceptable to have areas in pubs/inns that are out of bounds to dogs. However, when we asked where we needed to go we were tersely directed to an area with bar stool seating and a high table, and...

Dear Kim we have taken on board your comments and I do apologise you feel this way but if the Sofa area (low tables) were taken then the other place is the tall tables with stools, we dont allow dogs into the restaurant as we have to be considerate to those customers without dogs. In this instance could the dogs...

Excellent place, very friendly staff. The enormous breakfasts set you up nicely for the day. Eric the landlord was lovely, as was all the staff. Well priced, clean room and stunning location. We were part of a wedding party and the staff dealt very well with the multiple guests. A nice touch was when we had a table reserved for...

Pleasant stay here in May 2015. Good, well stocked and friendly pub bar. Room clean and well serviced as was the bathroom.Both on smallish side but perfectly adequate for two people sharing. Excellent price and food very good too.

Had one night in this lovely pub. The room was very spacious with all the amenities you find in a hotel, safe, mini bar a well as the hairdryer etc. The ensuite was small but certainly big enough and spotlessly clean, the shower was excellent and no issues with hot water. We stayed in room 1 which is on the...
