This was a lucky find, hidden away in Lower Almondsbury is a traditional centuries old pub with accommodation. Used by the locals it could do with a redecoration all through but it's saving grace is the food quality which can be eaten in the restaurant or bar. Unfortunately the bar tables all seem sticky and could do with a good... More

Room was very clean and well appointed for such a reasonable price - staff were very helpful and polite - the food was excellent and I would recommend the 12 hour cooked pulled pork - breakfast was also delicious - great place to stay - a little gem

Classic traditional British pub with 12 comfortable rooms. The accommodation is great value - almost worth it for the freshly-cooked breakfast in the morning on its own. The place has real character and staff are friendly.

We spent a long weekend here while attending a reunion at nearby Tytherington. Not easy to find but definitely worth the search. Room (#4) was bigger and better appointed than I expected, bed was really comfortable. Included breakfast was excellent. Service was great and it gets very busy with locals.

As others have already mentioned this 16th century Inn is tucked away on the south eastern edge of the Seven Vale, in a charming little area called Almondsbury so is a little difficult to find, but well worth finding. This place originates from 3 cottages that were made into one building to form the present one, We stayed here for... More

Rather difficult to find but well worth it when you get there. Excellent range of Real Ale, good food friendly staff and very comfortable bed!. I was in room 15 - well way from the bar so never heard any noise!

This was just about the dirtiest place we have ever stayed in and was very difficult to find. The entrance was full of leaves and the carpet hadn't been swept in ages. Moving on to the tiled reception area we were greeted with filthy, cracked floor tiles. After being told to "Go as far as the rubber mat and turn... More

I'm giving this a 5 star review as I have searched high n low for a fillet steak that tasted good and was cooked how I like it, this being rare. To the bowls inns credit they did both! I will most certainly be back for more. Yes the onion rings were over cooked an the price was a bit... More
