We had an excellent selection of meals from Steak, Suet Pudding,Pork Stack,Scampi I would recommend them all. We have eaten here before in 2014 and so glad we came back again. A really nice friendly atmosphere makes it a great place too meet and eat. A big thanks to Ben for his service.

It has been some time since I have visited the New Inn and had positive experiences on each of the previous occasions. With family visiting from Cumbria we decided to take them out to a good Somerset village pub and this one sprung to mind as pretty much guaranteed to provide for a pleasant evening. For the most part they... More

We have stayed here several times while visiting family and love it! A warm welcome, a comfortable bed (whichever room we are in) and great pub food. What more can you want? Well today we found out! We mentioned at breakfast time that a mirror near the hairdryer point could be useful and by 6.45pm, Richard was seen heading towards... More

We met with friends in this delightful pub, set in a picturesque village. There is a good menu of ‘pub grub’, with a few specials – prices are very reasonable. Food is cooked to order and well worth waiting for. Everyone enjoyed their generous helpings – no room for puddings! The staff were efficient and attentive. This was one of... More

I visited this pub on a week day with my family. The pub bar was busy with locals but we was welcomed in, quickly seated and drinks served. All the staff were very friendly and attentive throughout our meal. I had a rump steak which came with oven cooked chips and plated with not the best presentation. The food was... More

Stayed for just one night in room 1, (disabled room). This was a tale of 2 halves. The positives were, the food was good honest pub grub, nice and tasty, with a good selection of vegetables for a good price . The staff were really welcoming and friendly, but not overbearing. A lovely quintessential country pub. The negatives, were, the... More

Thank you for your recent review after staying with us. I apologise that the room was not to your liking. I have looked in to the damp issue you mentioned and have called in a local builder to try to rectify this problem. Once again, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us but we do appreciate all feedback. More

We stayed and dined for 2 nights whilst viewing properties in the area. All the staff were very pleasant and the food was fantastic - Monday Steak Night is great value; the only way it could have been improved was if they used hand cut chips.... and that's if I'm picky (I still ate all the oven chips). The rooms... More

My wife and I found this little gem when we planned to visit a relative near Honiton and were very pleased and a little surprised at the value for money at this Pub/Hotel. It is about 2 miles from Ilminster and sat-nav took us down some narrow country lanes but the hotel is very comfortable, great food (breakfast and dinner)... More
