Ship Inn

Pub Food in Porlock

The floors of this historic inn are flagstone and there's a big wood burner but in the summer you're hard-pressed to see them – so crammed does it get with hikers and holidaymakers. Bag a patio table and join them tucking into hearty chilli, chorizo casserole and cod 'n' chips.

Three simple bedrooms (singles £45, doubles £85) are dated but good value and are popular with those walking the South West Coast Path.
