More than adequete for a two night stay for a wedding. Lovely breakfast, a cosy bar and rooms that, while hardly glamarous, hvae all you need for a quick shower and change, then a sleep later on. Only issue was second morning the shower was scalding hot, which I've experienced at other B&Bs, maybe a pressure problem?! Not a major... More

Well.....we had originally booked at another BnB not far away but had been horribly let down at the last hour by a website misprint!! But it seems that the misprint actually did us the biggest favour as we then went on to book a room at Penscot inn. Thinking our short break had been scuppered we were delighted! I originally...

The Penscot Inn is a really friendly little eatery. We visited for Lunch and the food was really lovely and very reasonably priced. The staff were also very friendly, even offering WiFi! A great place to stop by, and a good distance to Cheddar Gorge.

Lovely and friendly place to stay, serving good food and plenty of local ales and ciders. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, with all you need for your stay. Nothing is too much trouble. Good central location to explore the surrounding area, including mendip hills, racing, cheddar gorge, Wookey hole,thatchers cider and nearby seaside towns. Good for bristol and the... More

The accommodation is very "tired" but relatively clean. There is a dangerous problem with their water pressure resulting in scalding showers. The staff were extremely rude about this issue, and did not accept there was an issue.

We were looking for a short break to visit Cheddar Gorge, Weston super mare and the Mendips - and what a lucky find. The food was amazing, highly recommend the home made raspberry tart - the rooms were tastefully done and had everything you could need. Staff were friendly and helpful - we will most definitely be back

A nice little pub, with a busy bar full of locals at lunchtime. A good range of choices on the menu, with reasonable pricing. Just had the burger with egg and chips - but found it to be a very reasonable sized serving, which was more than adequate as a lunchtime meal.

We stopped here overnight en route to Bristol airport and in order to visit a friend who lives in the village. She had not actually recommended this place and it does look a bit scruffy. Our room was large and rambling,, accessible through a very low door. It contained a double and a single bed but not much more furniture... More

We've just spent two nights at the Penscot Inn and loved it. The accommodation was really comfortable, breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of on site parking available just outside. The main attraction however was the warm and friendly family who own and run this establishment. From the moment we arrived to the time we booked out, we were... More

We stayed here one night while on a walking tour through Mendip Way. The room was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The dinner was unexpectedly good for a pub, with a large and varied menu. The location in the small town of Shipham is quiet but convenient for nearby sights and Cheddar Gorge.
