Just the small town ticket for those in search of outstanding food, a relaxed vibe and cosily stylish rooms to retreat to

Foodies will be spoilt for choice here. Award-winning chef Peter Mundy goes for taste, innovation and beauty in dishes that get rave reviews. Menus change regularly, so expect the freshest of seasonal food. The revamped pub setting has a woody, easy-going feel with the promising sparkle of well-polished glasses. Craft ales, beers and ciders are available - the team work with local breweries - and there's a splendid range of gins to choose from too. Dinner à la carte is a treat with catch of the day fish, and good vegetarian options. To work off your indulgence, take a stroll around the town and Church of St Michael and All Angels; there are pleasant local walks; more dramatic routes up on Exmoor (and space for clobber at the back door); ask about fishing, riding, picnic lunches – the team here are very helpful.
