Just stayed for 1 night on our way down to Devon. It's a very old building that would certainly benefit from being spruced up a bit. The staff were very good and friendly, the food good and a good comfortable bed. Also good beer and dog friendly.

Tried to make a booking for 5 people over 1 night, the lady seemed very pleasant and tried to accommodate but unfortunately got past to the man who said it wasn't possible. From his tone and attitude he was far to busy to waste his time with me then proceeded to ridicule me. extremely rude.

Breakfast was delicious - again the gentleman serving us was very... More

Just got back from a two night stay. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, and the Chef is a genius!! The inn is conveniently located for all the usual attractions, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Tor and Glastonbury. Many walks also surround the area.
