Excellent all round!

"We have visited the Woodborough 4 times in the last couple of months, twice for breakfast, once for a lunchtime snack and again for a main meal. On every occasion we have come away more than happy. A good atmosphere, helpful friendly staff and lovely food at reasonable prices. To top it all the bar and restaurant areas are smart, fresh and clean. This is a place for you to visit.”

Just Lovely!

"Three of us went for supper. Really lovely food, portion size just right and food piping hot and tasty. Two of us had the scampi (which is always superb) and the other had a pasta dish from the 'specials board', which was also enjoyed. Would recommend.”

Somerset hospitality

"Stayed here before and loved it, but after a recent refurbishment it now exceeds expectations with spacious rooms, a really comfortable bed and great bathroom. All really spotless. Then we get the breakfast.....superb. Something on the menu for all tastes and all made fresh. Good coffee followed by a great hearty breakfast. Cannot fault this establishment. If I had to give it a vote they would get 10 out of 10.”

Great find

"From start to finish the Staff we’re so friendly and helpful, it was a hot day and we had our small dog with us, who was offered a bowl of water before we even checked in !!

We liked it so much we stayed a further night in that week on our way back from the south west, and we have already booked again for December.

On our second stay we had dinner which was good, and breakfast was excellent.

Great find”

Excellent Accommodation

"We stayed here overnight as a small group of cyclists on a cycle tour holiday in the region. We were very well looked after from the moment we arrived and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. There was a secure place to lock our bikes overnight which we very much appreciated. The rooms were clean and good value. We enjoyed having dinner in the restaurant and there was a good selection of meals on the menu. Out of all the places we stayed during our week’s cycling holiday this Inn came out as the best accommodation overall. If arriving by bike it is situated conveniently very close to the Strawberry Line on the national cycle network."

Fantastic value

"Very friendly and helpful staff.
We ate in the restaurant and the meals were superb - after a day of walking we wanted a good hearty substantial meal and that is exactly what we got. Fantastic value for money. The bar has a good selection of beers and ciders. A++"

Comfortable and relaxed

"The staff were exceptional. We booked late but staff were helpful in providing overnight storage for our bikes. Our evening meal was delicious and reasonable priced. We needed to leave early in the morning before breakfast but the two wonderful ladies who came in at 6.15 am gave us a cup of coffee and made us a bacon sandwhich to eat as we were cycling."

Great location, delicious breakfast, and a friendly welcome!

"Lovely large, bright room with big windows and a cosy feel. Loved the fact the bathroom had a bath (the water pressure was amazing!). The breakfast was excellent; I had eggs benedict and my partner had a sausage bap, and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. Perfect location for walks along the Strawberry Line and the surrounding countryside, and an easy drive into Cheddar."

A family (and dog friendly) pub with excellent food, wonderful staff and lovely atmosphere

"We arrived on an exceptionally hot day, 2 children and Max (the dog!) after a great but tiring week camping. We stayed at the Woodborough as a stopover on our way home. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful to make our stay as comfortable as possible given the heat! The food was fantastic and the breakfast too.
Special thanks too, to the staff member who kindly posted back a loved toy left by one of the children.
We would very much recommend the Woodborough for food and accommodation. Thank you!"
