steak - Food & Drink


Following the easing of lockdown and re-opening of pubs, we feel it is now time to unveil or new Summer menu.

For table bookings in the following months, we strongly advise to pre-book your table in advance.

This is not only to ensure you have a table reserved for you at a time you’d like and to avoid any disappointment, but also to allow us to be able to organise our table bookings in the most efficient way to allow for the safe operating of the pub for our customers.

We unfortunately are unable to take any individual table bookings for parties of over 6 people currently, if you have a group over this number that would like to dine with us, please do ring and we can discuss any options that are available so that we may still accommodate you.

Owners Royston and Caroline pride themselves on offering visitors superb hospitality in the manner of a traditional English
Country Inn.

Whether popping in just for a drink or joining us for a lunchtime snack or evening meal, we hope you enjoy your visit.

Our philosophy is to cook real food that is unpretentious, made with great ingredients and prepared fresh for you in our kitchen. 
We use locally sourced ingredients where possible, and never knowingly GM, to produce a varied menu containing simple, yet excellent, food cooked with care and served to a high standard.
The world is our inspiration and in particular the wonderful locality of Exmoor in which we are situated.

In the wonderful old bar of our CAMRA recommended pub a wide range of drinks are served, we offer a large selection of West Country ales, local ciders & lagers, new and old world wines as well as locally produced small batch and speciality gins amongst other things.

Our selection of homemade food we offer ranges from traditional pub fayre to classic restaurant dishes and contemporary cuisine, as well as lighter bites and a varied selection of starters, a children’s menu is also available.

Food is served:


Daily: 12.00 – 2.30


Sunday to Thursday: 6.15 – 8.30
Friday & Saturday: 6.00 – 9.00

Booking is always advised.
