We booked this place after trying it two days before. The food is very homely and excellent quality. We had an oggie steak and kidney pie. This was excellent from every perspective the meat was of the highest quality with no fat at all and the puff pastry was extremely light. Nothing was too much trouble even asking for extra... More

Had lunch here whilst passing through the area. The food was fantastic, Great Choice and service was excellent. Couldn't fault it at all. Would definitely recommend. Both myself and my husband had the Oggie, which I could definitely recommend.

Stayed here in April for a family wedding, beautiful location. Lovely traditional pub and large restaurant, excellent breakfast choice, really nice food for both breakfast and dinner. Large seating area outside with a park for children. The rooms are immaculate, room 3 (I think) had a really large bathroom with rain shower and his and hers sinks. Room 2 was... More

We stayed at the Hunters Rest this May for three nights with our dog Flash as we were attending a dog agility event at a local county show ground. The Hotel is very pleasant and the owner and the staff are very welcoming. The hotel is on a very quiet lane and there is a large garden at the rear... More

The first time we stayed was a week ago; we phoned late on on a Sunday evening. We were not expecting to have to stay in the area, but there was a family crisis and we needed a place to stay. Having tried a couple of other numbers off Tripadvisor, some of whom were unhelpful in the extreme, others just... More

After a slight mess up of room reservation the staff went above and beyond to make up for a mistake. Really warm and friendly place at one the nicest pubs I think I've ever been to. Idyllic setting in the heart of the countryside with tradition decor and great food. Feel massive refreshed and relaxed from just one nights stay.... More

We found ourselves in Bristol unexpectedly on a mercy mission to a specialist vet with our dog. Knowing he might be kept in overnight I'd looked at reviews for somewhere to stay and in among the dire city hotels was this gorgeous inn. After a delicious lunch we asked about rooms and as they were fairly quiet we were offered... More

Very friendly staff, comfortable good-sized clean room (5) and great food. The Saturday night was busy in the pub, but a table was kept for us and our room was very quiet. Evening meals excellent and large tasty breakfasts. Borrowed a map of the area from them which was very useful. Clearly signed on the local roads. Would definitely recommend.

We don't live far from the hunters rest but we always stay the night when we visit. The food is always lovely and the staff friendly. We visit two or three times a year and never get bored of it! Can't wait for our next visit and can't recommend it enough!

We sheltered here for a couple of nights whilst a wrecking ball of a storm made a mess of Britain and parts of Europe – the owner even took down his swinging Inn sign so it wouldn’t disappear in the wind. Unfortunately all the patrons of the pub also stayed bunkered down at home so it was very quiet which... More
