Dining Room

Our historic, sunny Dining Room recreates a typical Chinoiserie theme, popular in the Regency period.

Original panelling, appropriately painted in ‘Dayroom Yellow’ by Farrow & Ball, is highlighted with a simply stunning artist-commissioned mural on two walls, and Oriental influences have been carefully curated to complete the look.

Breakfast like a King on a table set with white linen tablecloth, antique silver cutlery, vintage bone china crockery and huge linen napkins. Fresh flowers in a crystal vase and classical music playing softly in the background combine to ease you gently into the day ahead.

Dine by candlelight! We cook formal evening meals once or twice a week – please enquire as to whether it coincides with your stay.

Bar meals are available in the Club Lounge – please click here to see the menu.


Set yourself up for a day exploring beautiful Exmoor with a delicious home-cooked breakfast!

Enjoy a tastier breakfast using locally sourced ingredients, including award-winning sausages and bacon from Little Oak Farm just two miles distant, and our free-range eggs from the village. If you love our sausages, you can buy some to take home from Sarah at The Post Office in the village.

Glenmore Bakery of Minehead keep us stocked up with their deliveries of freshly-baked bread.


We can cater for specific dietary requirements if requested at the time of booking. Please note, as we are a small B&B, we do not keep huge stocks of these items and buy to order.
