Been here several times over the past few years. And as always food was excellent. We had a roast this time. We had a choice of 5 meats. Portions were very generous. Resonably priced and worth every penny. Will definitely be back for a roast again when we are next in the area.

In the midst of a blustery winter evening, I stumbled upon the West Country Inn on Bursdon Moor. The roaring fire and the aroma of delicious home-cooked food welcomed me, creating a haven from the storm outside. The combination of exceptional service, hearty home cooked meals, and the traditional country pub feel made this visit truly memorable. Highly recommend for a cozy and inviting experience.

Arrived to a roaring log fire after a long day travelling. Very welcoming. We were fed and watered! Food, large home cooked portions and wonderful. We confirmed it was ok to stay in our campervan overnight. There is a campsite onsite but we had our own onboard facilities so parked and stayed in the carpark. Meeting Holly, the puppy, was an added bonus! Thank you!
