Visited recently with family all of us had food. Food was ok service was very good tho! All of us agreed that while the food was not bad as such for the price it could be much better. They do 2 meals for £10 but we all opted to go for something on the regular menu. The meals worked out... More

Sorry but we did not have a good stay here. We were not in a clean and comfy room. The second day we returned to find the room had not been serviced and the tea and coffee etc. had not been replenished. We queried this and were told that it was only serviced every two days! I have never known... More

The food was awful - so bad I couldn't even eat it. I had the fish and chips and the fish was hard, maybe it was old and out of date.....the chef didn't know what was wrong with it! I ate a few chips and came home hungry. The pub was dirty - sticky tables they hadn't bothered to wipe... More

Since change of management standards have severely slipped. Ate there once, luckily it was 2 for £10, wasn't even worth that. It's a shame, it could be a lovely village pub with a bit of care and clean up.

We stayed at The Stowey Arms on a Saturday night to go to a friends 40th at the Golf Club. For the money we paid it is about expected. The bed was comfortable, the room was ample and the breakfast was good. Only downside was the wood flooring in the landing was noisy when people walked down it. I'd assume... More

We ate here in April and honestly wish we hadn't. The food was disgusting and over priced. The staff were rude and had a not bothered attitude. The managers lack experience in running a bar / restaurant their language is fowl. Customer services skills are non existent. The whole place stinks of urine and is unclean. Want a nice meal... More

If my wife had served me this food, I would think she was angry with me. I would skirt around the issue, sipping my wine, wondering what important date I'd forgotten. My macaroni cheese was as thin as Nicole Richie on lent, there was very little of it, and the only thing mixed about the salad, was not all of... More

The room at the Stowey was good. The bed was comfy, the room had everything I needed and despite being relocated within the first 30 mins because of a mixup, all was well. Likewise, in the morning I was treated to a hearty fry up with the works and a very cheery chef. The problems were all during the night.... More
