Plus points: The staff were very helpful, despite being rather busy. A lovely rambling building (one bedroom available on the ground floor) in a picturesque setting. The breakfast was plentiful & tasty - I particularly enjoyed my porridge - not something you get offered very often. Toiletries included conditioner. Good wifi. large wardrobe space. Comfy bed. Interesting shaped room. Ask... More

I had booked for 3 nights, but had to cancel the 3rd night due to unforeseen circumstances. The manager had no problems cancelling for me and at no charge. Great customer service and one which ensures I'll be booking the Bowl Inn again. The only down side ( minor really ) was the shower in my room gave quite a... More

Fantastic value for money and a well appointed warm room with excellent food and service from attentive management. Highly recommended. Tricky to find after dark so use a tomtom or similar to find it but it's well worth while when you do!

We booked the function room for a family meal as a half way point between us in Oxfordshire and them in Exeter. We ordered in advance and based on the prices expected a decent quality meal. on arrival the room was disappointing. A chair I sat on nearly gave way beneath me (at 7 1/2 months pregnant it was quite... More

Four of us stayed at the Bowl Inn near Almondsbury last weekend. It is quaint and welcoming. Parking is free and the free wifi excellent. The rooms were comfortable and the food very good. The staff were attentive and hard working. The room cost was reasonable. Our food bill was £124 for four, but that was because we were piggies.... More

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 stopped off here for a night on our way to wales - having booked it very last minute. Lovely inn which is full of character - rooms were well appointed and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and can thoroughly recommend - good choice, excellent portions and I can recommend the profiteroles in particular! Breakfast was also very good... More

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.
