5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 4 nights last week as we wanted to have a break in Somerset. Because it seemed such excellent value we were a little worried at first but any misgivings disappeared as soon as we walked in (eventually - having got lost trying to find it!) Everybody was extremely friendly, the room was clean and had everything... More

We booked a single night in this guest house. It is reached by single track roads but is sign posted. Sat nav really helped to find it. There is a large, safe car park at the front of the accommodation. We were welcomed by an extremely friendly proprietor. She offered to help us with our bags and asked if we... More

We have stayed here twice now on our way down to Cornwall . It is a fantastic country village pub and is a welcoming break for the long drive. Great pub , great food and a great location. Will defiantly be going again . Great breakfast , no complaints.

Friendly and welcoming staff, comfortable room, great food and ale. Delighted we found this pub in the lovely village of Dowlish Wake. Very accommodating kitchen, preparing gluten free meals when asked, and clearly understood what 'gluten free' really means! The breakfasts are probably the best we've had in a B&B and that's saying something. We'd thoroughly recommend a stay, and... More

The lovely pub has 4 rooms all with own access from the gardens so you can come and go as you please. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the food was... More

Lovely friendly country pub in beautiful surroundings. Staff always very helpful, and food very good and eat here often. Dog friendly too, and lovely beer garden. Would highly recommend. If I had to criticise, I would ask that the main menu might change, as have been going here for a long time and menu is still the same, although there... More

We stayed here for a night after a friends wedding. The staff were really friendly and helpful and let us check in early at no extra charge. The room was modern and clean. We also had lunch which was reasonably priced and very tasty. Would definitely recommend.
