Although we live locally in South Somerset, my wife and I decided we would like to take time out from our busy lives to spend some quality time enjoying a meal and staying overnight. Although Dowlish Wake is located near Crewkerne on the A30 and Ilminster on the A303, it is a beautiful peaceful village into which the New Inn... More

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
