The Bowle Inn is something special - real old-world pub set at the heart of a beautiful, unspoiled village. We were greeted by really helpful people and, although our room was small it was extremely comfortable and spotlessley clean.It would be dishonest to say that we did not suffer from some minor technical problems but the staff dealt wity them...

Quiet and friendly country pub. Rooms were comfortable although alittle small but they were clean and had all we needed and all facilities were working. We felt the price for a one night stay was abit steep but thought as it was a pub we would at least not be paying hotel prices on food and drink. Was quite surprised... More

Stayed here after a long cycle trip. The staff were exceptional, both in the reception and at Dinner. Peter, Lauren and Cheyenne were absolute stars. Excellent range of beers. The food was fantastic. A great place to stay and eat.

My wife and I stayed over one night to break the journey from Cornwall to Yorkshire. We found the room to be very nice and the cleanliness was excellent. The pub in which we stayed is very tired but the rooms make up for it,at £64 for B&B you can't go far wrong. Staffing was a bit on the tight... More

Nice pub to stay, good atmosphere and drinkable ale. the room was clean an well decorated but the bathroom extractor fan did not work and no window to open also the bath side panel was in a sorry state, slightly annoying the television would not switch on, we think due to a wrong remote. The bed was very comfortable and... More

First impressions of the bowl inn were those of a traditional pub inn nestled in a quiet viilage on the outskirts of bristol.My wife and I were staying here or three nights on a bed and breakfast basis, and were neither dissapointed on the accomodation or food afforded to us.The inn itself has lots of character, together with a very...

3rd visit, food and service consistent with previous meals - nice roaring fire on a cold day much appreciated. 6 adults, 2 small children - all happy with meals and we stayed from 12 noon to about 5.30pm chatting by the fire, without being made to feel that we should go, as in some places. Small snag was leaf of... More

First impressions were good. The menu was interesting, varied and promised good value. Staff were friendly and welcoming. There was a large group of regulars who appeared to be best friends with the bar staff - a good sign, we thought. The food took almost 40 mins to arrive, but when the food arrived it looked great. However the taste... More

I stayed here for one night whilst visiting relatives in the area. The Inn was very welcoming, with the log fires lit and exposed beams. Almondsbury is such a quiet little area, and nice place to stay to get out of the hustle and bustle of Bristol. I stayed in a lovely room with lots of character and was clean... More

Stayed here for one night mid Feb. I am a student and was attending an assessment centre for a graduate job role the next day. Unfortunately I didn't receive an email from the assessors in time, and when already at The Bowl Inn I realised I needed additional paperwork with me that I did not have. Very, very kindly, a...
