Excellent all the way. Only fault was it was a little hard to find, but worth the country lanes to find it. Best way leave A38 at Thruloxton (Maple Inn) go past pub go straight then right then left

Very professional and helpful front of house, nothing is to much trouble what ever you ask about your meal. Food sourced local with a twist of French and English. Very relaxing atmosphere with tables far enough away to chat and not interfere with the next which is very cosy The host and chef are very helpful in what ever your... More

First time to try this restaurant and took advantage of the February Exmoor Foodfest with 2 courses for £10 or 3 or £15. 3 choices per course on limited menu as to be expected but all were delicious and will definitely go back to sample the full menu. Only criticism was that the wine was a bit expensive especially by... More

We've eaten here several times so it's about time I put finger to keyboard. I imagine that Clavelshay Barn does not pick up much, if any, passing trade: it's somewhat off the beaten track. It is, however, worth the effort and drive once you've booked, which, I'm guessing, is essential. To give you an idea; the first time we came... More

A little difficult to find, but a lovely setting. Probably best for couples or small groups. Food was delicious.

It took us a while to find this place as we got lost around the country roads for quite a while. Once we were there it was all worth it. Lovely menu and the food was beautifully presented and tasted just as good. Faultless service and a lovely wine. Will Defiantly return !!

As part of the Exmoor Food festival, Clavelshay is serving a simpler menu at a modest price. I had the carrot soup served with a miniature loaf, it belonged on their fine dining menu. I could not resist the Clavelshay sausages with onion sauce. The sausages are produced from their own pigs and the onion sauce was everything you would... More
