We had planned a weekend away to visit Longleat and Stourhead and this hotel is within a stones throw of both. We had a wonderful time and the hotel experience added to it. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. We had food on Friday night and this was very well cooked and tasty and delivered with smiles as was... More

My Partner and I stayed here for one night, having visited Longleat Safari park for the day. The young Lady who greeted us was very friendly, and most importantly helpful in organising flowers to be in our room on arrival, for my Partner’s birthday. She thought they were beautiful…so thank you again! The room was clean and comfortable, with nice... More

Good to see the Somerset Arms busy and buzzing on Saturday 9 August. Restaurant full, jolly drinkers in the bar. Everything we ate was excellent but the steak was the best I've had for ages - tasty, tender and perfectly cooked. Well done chef! And it was all very reasonably priced.

This place seems to be recovering from a bad previous landlord, but the current young man and his wife were extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was very clean, and the breakfast excellent, even though it wasn't included in the original price of the room (full English breakfast came to 7.50 per person). The village of Maiden Bradley is a... More

Under new management since May Bank Holiday, this pub (close to our B&B) served a good range of drinks and very nice pub food, so we ate there twice during our 4-night stay. The public bar was well-populated and friendly, and the restaurant side has good solid wooden furniture to eat at. Nice old building, friendly young staff, garden outside... More

Goodness, what a fall from grace. What was a lovely country pub has been, quite frankly, ruined by a rude landlord and average food. My advice is to avoid the place (which is what the locals are doing) and visit one of many excellent local pubs.

BE AWARE - the pub is under new ownership since the summer of 2013. What used to be a pub with great food, choice and atmosphere (incl live folk band on Sundays) has now disappointed in every respect. When we visited one Sunday the only choice was a selection of roasts. We were a table of 8 - all were... More

We stayed at the Somerset Arms for two nights over a wedding. The first night was a lads night with the groom before his big day. We were very warmly welcomed and were soon made to feel at home. The rooms were lovely, we even had a roll top bath in our bedroom. The food was excellent and nothing was... More

We arrived on 5 August, having booked one overnight a couple of months previously. The landlord and landlady had done a runner a few weeks ago and the brewery had parachuted in a new landlady named Carol. Before running away the previous people took everything with them that was not screwed down. The bar area is super but the accommodation... More
