My wife and I were privileged to stay a week at the Shrubbery .From the owner down to each of the staff, we received gracious considerate service. The Hotel is quite charming, and we highly recommend it to anyone travelling to the Somerset area of the UK.

The Carvery meal was lovely, with a generous array of vegetables.... More
