“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 [...]

“A Gastronomic Oasis in Exmoor!”

My wife and I have eaten in the Culbone on numerous occasions since moving into the area and have seldom been disappointed. We are always made welcome by friendly staff and the food is first class.

“Hidden Little Gem!”

Stayed here for 2 nights on a business/pleasure trip in October in Porlock, and for the price point (around £50/night) it is a real gem. It is a way up from Porlock on Exmoor however, but it is so darn peaceful and calm up there, and beauitful to boot! (to note there is n mobile [...]

“Second visit”

Last night we were guests at a friends birthday treat at the Culbone and we had a great time. Being Wednesday it was steak night and the sirloin was two for the price of one. Mine was absolutely perfect and the chef knows how to present a ‘rare’ steak. Everyone enjoyed themselves the service being [...]

“A Birthday Experience”

A ?0th. birthday celebration for 6 people with a 5-course bespoke menu cooked and presented by Jack, served by a dedicated waiter provided a meal to remember for a long time. The food was excellent, cooked as near to perfection as you could find anywhere. The wines, not the most expensive by any means, served [...]

“Sunday Lunch – but Plus!!”

Reviewed 24 September 2012 We followed up an advert for this restaurant in the Exmoor magazine at our B&B and were so glad we did. After a truly atmospheric drive around/over/through(?) a very misty and drizzly Exmoor we had the reward of a really well cooked meal for the 2 of us. Starters were scallops [...]

“Perfect Venue”

Having already experienced some of the best meals we have ever had when dining at The Culbone, we have just returned from having dinner and an overnight stay there, to celebrate my husbands birthday. The Culbone is the perfect venue for all occasions. The staff are superb and nothing is too much trouble, the food [...]
