The Rams Head Inn

South Street, DOLTON, EX19 8QS

2 rosettes

In a bucolic location between Dartmoor and Exmoor, the Rams Head is a 17th-century country inn reinvented for modern times, its relaxed ambience working well with the updated interior decor, stripped pine floors, stone walls and head-skimming beams. A switched-on gastro pub menu appeals to 21st-century sensibilities with the likes of scallops matched with marrowbone and pork belly preceding Exmoor beef sirloin alongside a bourguignon-style preparation of shin meat with carrots, silverskin onions, bacon and sautéed potatoes, or stone bass with barley risotto and lobster bisque. Puddings have the same full-flavoured appeal - dark chocolate fondant, perhaps, served with white chocolate parfait and milk peanut mousse.
