our little black book

The following is an up to date list of all our favourite places to eat and drink around Exmoor and beyond. All involve a little drive (you can’t get anywhere very fast on Exmoor!) between 15 and 35 minutes. Please enjoy, and don’t forget to mention that Heasley House sent you!


Woods wine bar, Dulverton

This is truly our favourite restaurant locally, maybe the whole country! In fact this warm and cosy delight has won best Wine Bar of the Year for the last 4 years running. The food is always excellent and the wine list is superb. Dulverton is a stunning village and well worth a visit on it’s own, but don’t leave without having a long lunch at Woods! BEST FOR: Long lazy lunches and spoily suppers.


The London Inn, Molland

A lovely local pub that is easy to get to, and on a sunny day has a lovely dog-friendly beer garden with fantastic views. The food is normally excellent and often amazing. Great skittle alley…. BEST FOR: G&T’s in the sunshine, & proper ‘local’ pub with strangely good grub.


The Mason’s Arms, Knowstone

A fabulous little pub serving michelin-starred dishes cooked by renowned chef Mark Dodson. This is somewhere to go for a proper treat and has truly first class service to go with the experience. And if you just want to go for a drink, then this 13th century thatched Inn still serves as a wonderfully cosy pub. BEST FOR: Special treats, fine dining.
