Stayed for 2 nights in June. Wanted somewhere handy for Stourhead and other local NT attractions and found this to be ideal. Very comfortable bed in a newly decorated room. Some traffic noise but more than compensated by the quality of the accomodation. ( We were aware of this before we went ). Excellent breakfast and evening meals. Very attentive... More

Owned by a brother and sister, this quaint well run establishment was a good find. I booked the night before online and is lovely and quiet, a little off the beaten track. We were welcomed by the landlady and shown to a lovely room on the first floor. It boasted a well appointed, tastefully furnished good sized room with relatively... More

I cannot rate the hospitality, food and atmosphere of this quaint comfortable offering more highly. Stayed on business and the new owners were amazing. Will be returning for leisure. I didn't have much time to take in the amazing local scenery or things to do but the locals made me feel very welcome and at home. Adi in particular made... More

We had a drink in the bar and again staff were very friendly. Next morning, we had breakfast which wasn't included in the price of the room but was good value, plentiful and... More

This is a lovely pub with 5 bedrooms all on the first floor. It's about 15 mins from Longleat, which was the main purpose of our visit. When we arrived we were greeted by the manager/owner and although we turned up before the 2.30pm check in, he showed us to our room and made us feel very welcome as did... More

From start to finish the service was fabulous. We arrived quite late and the male owner was exremeley friendly and showed us to our room straight away. My boyfriend... More

We had a wonderful time. The room was very spacious, clean and almost too comfortable. The food was fine, your standard pub grub. But what really made the experience unforgettable was the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. But in particular, one of the women who worked the day shift. Unfortunately I didn't get her name but I have... More

Having looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor we booked a three night stay, On arrival was not impressed walking through the side door to the bar seeing all cigarette ends on the ground, clearly not cleaned up for some time. Bar looked ok, staff friendly. Room at first glance looked ok, but looking closer it was all a bit... More

Nice quiet place to stay. Hotel was clean and the people were all friendly. The food was good & so was the Ale's on offer. I used the hotel as a stop off point on a trip around the South West. I would stay here again,
