“Good value, nice atmosphere, friendly staff”

We eat (fairly) regularly at the Culbone, and find it consistently good value for money with a welcoming atmosphere. Mark and his team will always try that bit harder to make your meal that bit special. They will go out of their way to offer deals (we stayed there on our wedding anniversary, and Becky, [...]

“Top class”

It is in a fantastic location with great views across the moor. They is an outside sitting area and the restaurant is decorated to a very high standard. Specialising in fish, brought from Brixham each day, for us as a fish lovers this place is perfect. In the area we were staying between Lynton and [...]

“Family night out.”

The Culbone was a first for us, passed many time’s travelling down to Lynmouth and keep saying we must try it, well we did and we did and did not regret it, warm welcome, happy faces you could not wish for a better spot views are amazing, nice to see it’s dog friendly also, the [...]


We highly recommend The Culbone restaurant. Superb quality food, modern and comfortable interior and welcoming staff, everything is brilliant. The only regret is that we hadn’t found this place a night before as we would have returned for a second helping on our holiday. Highly recommended. Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple Tweet

“Brilliant food!”

Try the tandoori masala prawns! Absolute heaven – in fact the seafood is all delicious. A real jewel of a restaurant, all the more extraordinary for being in the middle of nowhere. If ever a restaurant was worth a journey, it is here!!!!! Stayed July 2014, travelled with family Tweet

“Good, Generous, Friendly and Great Location”

Visited The Culbone 3 times during the week we were in Porlock. The first time was for a quick afternoon drink after a good walk. The barmaid informed us of the steak night on Wednesdays where you get 2 steaks for the price of one. So we booked ourselves in. The steaks were excellent. Properly [...]


Wonderfully scrummy food in a very relaxed atmosphere, very comfy bed, very attentive staff, beautiful setting, lovely walks direct from the garden. Close to Porlock and Lynton/Lynmouth with beautiful drives through amazing scenery including the herds of Exmoor ponies. Thank you all. Tweet

“Great food, stunning location, friendly service”

Stayed for a two night break and had dinner in the restaurant both evenings. It is a restaurant rather than a pub but they do welcome people any time of day if they just want a drink so we settled in front of the stove with the papers for an hour before going up to [...]

“A perfect place to stay in Exmoor”

I would very much agree with previous review having also stayed for two nights at end of October. We stayed in Room 3 with beautiful views over exmoor. The Culbone is in a wonderful location – the views driving from porlock to the Culbone are stunning – we enjoyed some fabulous walks despite the wet [...]

“A real find”

We must have driven past The Culbone a dozen times over the last couple of years, but we always stayed in Minehead & Lymouth. We got an absolutely cracking deal for B&B off the internet for The Culbone so we thought we would give it a go. We are really glad we did. It is [...]

“Perfect place to stay!”

My partner & I arrived later then expected at The Culbone, and wanted food, they were still serving, but by the time it reached dessert the kitchen would have been closed, however, we ordered anyway and there were no huffs of puffs from staff, or any inkling that they wanted us to hurry up and [...]

“Beyond superlatives.”

We called into the Culbone on Saturday for a spur of the moment lunch and are so pleased we did. We were greeted and treated like we were royalty from start to finish and came away totally wowed. We will be going to the Culbone again and again and again!! A special thanks to Dawn……one [...]

“Lovely Lunch”

I’ve eaten at The Culbone a few times, so it was the pefect choice for lunch with a girlfriend. It was pleasantly busy (always a good sign) and the food and service both excellent, as always! My friend hadn’t been to The Culbone before, but I’m sure she’ll be back. I definately will, so thank [...]

“Everything a restaurant should be”

On frequent trips to Porlock Weir the entire family always looks forward to a trip to The Culbone. The food is always first class, beautifully presented and sourced locally. We often go as a large party (6+) at busy times and the service is always excellent, friendly and informal … a balancing act so rarely [...]


What a find.Situated up on beutiful Exmoor with breathtaking scenery all around.Our friends rang to ask if we fancied going out mid-week for lunch out Lynmouth way.It was decided we would give the Culbone a try.One of us being a wheelchair user can sometimes make eating out awkward, no such problem here.What great staff,cheerful,helpful and [...]
