Locanda on the Weir Information


Locanda on the Weir is modelled on the beautiful Restaurants with Rooms scattered throughout the Amalfi coast of Italy where chef Pio comes from( Naples and Capri ), he knows all about outstanding food and is continuously refining the daily changing set menu which also takes into consideration our valued guests’ dietary requirements (within reason ), Locanda is the place to trust Chef will serve you something memorable and lingering without being pretentious and very fussy eaters have the option to dine locally, we have achieved our zero food waste objective by having a set menu. The restaurant itself is a beautiful room filled with art and candlelight serving only one sitting each evening for a limited number of diners, Locanda can afford to source the best produce and during the summer much comes from the kitchen garden. Each of the rooms offer sea views and all are individual in their design, there are four rooms unless you might like to book Locanda Bespoke for a family holiday or micro wedding, we are also licensed for marriage, in which case a fifth room is made available, this option is similar to booking a fully staffed and catered villa abroad with exclusivity and freedom to bring children and babies which we do not usually offer in consideration to the peace of other guests. We are a very dog-friendly establishment welcoming housetrained pets throughout the hotel except one bedroom ( Santa Lucia ) which remains dog-free, your dog is sure to love exploring the wilds of Exmoor, the beach and woodland. During Summer the garden offers another option for rest and repose breathing in Vitamin Sea surrounded by flowers and it is always peaceful in the garden as it is reserved for the exclusive use of our hotel guests. During Winter Locanda comes into its own with a cosy log fire and corners to curl up in and read or rest with a glass of wine and vinyl playing in the background perhaps. We aim to serve you excellence with impeccable informality. Thank you.

Locanda offers coastal living in Britain at its best, we listen to what you would like and then deliver to you a beautiful experience and memories. Locanda is particularly well suited for food lovers because chef is co proprietor and in the kitchen every single day, however there are also other walkable food offerings in the area for those simply wishing to soak up coastal vibes, all are welcome. Featured in The Times, The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, Food and Travel, Country Life magazine and awarded Best Newcomer 2022 by the industry respected Good Hotel Guide, Locanda has had its fair share of great reviews but unless we have pleased you, our guest, then we have failed. Both owners are hands on at the property every day making sure everything offered is executed to the best standard. Having moved to Exmoor from London and also extensively travelled we understand from a guest perspective what is desirable and do our very best to deliver it. We made the decision to aim for zero waste particularly with food and therefore offer a set menu and limited number of covers knowing in advance how many we are serving and thus have now happily achieved the objective. Thank you.
