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

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!
