Jan and I stayed here over the Bank Holiday weekend. The Inn is just as we expected - an old English inn that was converted from 3 cottages. My view is that if you want to spend a weekend in Somerset, then get into the spirit of it and save the large hotel chains for different occasions. We found the... More

Best burger & chips or fish & chips for the kids (and Dad), and scallops & chorizo salad for busy Mum in Shipham. Service with a smile too ;-) Thank you. The bar always smells deliciously of a wood fire, which is always lit when chilly.

We stayed here a few years back and were pleasantly surprised this place is prime location to all local attractions hence why we booked it but would definatly reccomend for even a little quiet escape now we've been. It had a cosy feel we were very welcomed had a lovely meal and breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This small B&B had a very interesting local feel. From the decoration of the bedroom to the bathroom that only had a bath tub instead of a shower is what made this place feel very traditional. The location of this Hotel was fairly close to Cheddar Gorge (3.5 miles) in which we were visiting at the time and we had... More

I stayed here with girlfriend last week the owners greeted me with a nice warm welcome. Bar area was basic but fine decor on way up to room was quite dated and old. Got to room which was more modern than I thought it would be. Bathroom very basic but clean Breakfast was excellent next morning

We stayed with our dog in this friendly inn for two nights. The owners were pleasant, the room was lovely - well decorated with a very comfy bed with Egyptian cotton bedding. The full English breakfasts were made to order using local ingredients. We were given lots of information about the local area.

Arrived late and had a good dinner on arrival. The member of staff (Son?), we were served by let the place down. Unwashed with filthy fingernails really put us off. The room was ok, shame a rug was placed to cover up heavy stains. It could not cover the filthy carpet. Overall for the money the place was OK for... More

I booked a room in the afternoon and confirmed that we wouldn't be able to check-in until midnight as we were travelling from far. At 10.30pm I had a voicemail from the owner saying that check-in closes at 11pm, and "it gets very tricky to get in then doesn't it?" in a sarcastic tone. I rang him back at 11.30pm... More

Had a very pleasant stay at this village inn, good breakfast and a comfy bed what more could you need. The location of this accommodation is ideal for walkers and is also a dog friendly pub. The beer is good too.
