Loved the location of this place, as we walked in we were made to feel welcome straight away, we were delt with promptly and booked in to our room. We had the twin and double rooms that are linked together with a internal door. The rooms were of a good standard and clean with a creaky floor that was slightly... More

Used this inn as a stop on the way to Cornwall! All staff were friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and the beer good. The rooms were nicely presented and furnished within keeping with the inn. It's a dog friendly hotel and the staff were really accommodating with our and other visitors dogs. All in all a good experience!

We were looking for another pub when we happened across this delightful pub on 12th July. We were welcomed along with our 2 dogs and enjoyed a fabulous light lunch in the garden at the rear. We had a ploughman's with the best homemade chutney we've ever tasted and a chicken and mayo sandwich. Great side salad too. Lovely setting,... More

We saw the Oakhill Inn promoted roadside and it looked nice, advertising real ale and home cooked food but the reality was quite different. It's very like an old pub in layout and atmosphere with tables laid out for diners but the prices belie the simple interior... we didn't mind this at all but we did have high expectations of... More

I stayed at the Oakhill Inn with my husband and two friends 5 July 2014. A lovely little find with only 5 rooms in total. The double room we had was a reasonable size, with everything you would need for a couple of nights, and a lovely large bathroom with a good shower. The pub is very nice with lots... More

We visited here for lunch on Easter Monday before going for a walk in the afternoon. Dogs are welcome, but we chose to eat in the beer garden because the weather was so lovely. We received a very warm welcome, and the food was absolutely gorgeous. I had bubble & squeak which I can thoroughly recommend. Would like to eat... More

Arrived to check in at 4:30pm - place was closed, called the number on the building, no answer - left voice mail. Staff turned up at 5 and let us in. Rooms were cute and in keeping with a country pub. Wifi downstairs doesn't work up stairs so theres another password - which we discovered after sitting in the hall... More

One of our regular 'go to' pubs when we travel South of Bath, popped in this Friday on the way back from Bovey Tracey for an early pub dinner. Sadly, we must have caught them at a bad time as our food fell way short of the usual standards we have come to expect. Although my burger was very good,... More

We ate here on a (very quiet) evening. Lots of choice in beers and ciders, small selection on menu but very well cooked and presented. Perhaps a touch expensive but certainly a place we will return to eat. we didn't use hotel as we live locally
