You can choose a wide range of options from our ‘Full Exmoor’ breakfast with bacon, sausage and eggs, cooked to order, to our smoked Exmoor Trout with scrambled eggs. Why not try our freshly cooked croissant, and there is always fresh fruit salad, muesli, yoghurts, and cereals available to complement your experience. You can finish your meal with toast spread with local honey, marmalade, or a variety of jams.

Supper Platter/Lighter bites

There are many excellent places to eat in Dunster but if you are arriving late or just fancy a lighter bite why not try our supper platter. This consists of a selection of ham, chicken, cheeses, and pickles, served with a freshly baked baguette. We also serve baguettes with a range of fillings to choose from, ideal for packed lunches or as a light snack
