Great choice to eat out during Covid restrictions

"Friendly pub with excellent food and plenty of space inside - so no problem with distancing. Varied menu and the food is well presented. I had the chicken tikka masala special which was delicious."

Great pub and hotel

"Stayed here 1 night on my way back from Land's End to Stratford on Avon. Very comfortable and spacious room. Arrived on motorbike, staff let me put it round back in secure yard. Dined in restaurant, nice varied pub type menu, staff really nice, nothing too much trouble. Special mention for Andy Bridges who went out of his way to look after me. Will definitely stay again if back in area. Thanks for a good stay."

Just the spot

"Spent a couple of nights here. The room was spacious and clean, the bed very comfortable and the service very friendly. The breakfast was excellent and abundant and the hotel is well placed to visit the wonderful Somerset places of interest."


Had lunch here today it was really delicious. Didn't fancy a roast so ordered from the menu. Food arrived freshly cooked and piping hot. The staff were friendly and welcoming from the start. Nice to have the choice of chips or their delicious herbie potatoes. Definitely be going back."

Little gem

"We stayed here after a last minute dash from Cornwall. Beautiful room with lots of space. We received a very warm welcome. Breakfast in the morning was lovely with a great variety of cereals, yogurts and fruit to choose from. My husband had the full English which he enjoyed very much. Fresh ground coffe was lovely. It’s a shame we only had one night."
