This is definitely a destination pub that people who enjoy great hospitality should visit, the food is excellent with a good selection. The landlord Alan is very helpful and cooks up a mean breakfast. The locals are really friendly, you have to drive down a country lane to find the pub, but well worth it.

We stayed here for a night. It is a very tired place in need of a make over. Very basic room that could have been better. Bathroom/ shower was ok though. I think the pictures etc are not very recent either.

Would have been an excellent if it weren't for the soft mattress and the low bed in room 5. I did move to the single bed in the room during the night, which was better. This pub has a nice upmarket feel to it and the service and food were excellent. The room was pleasant, nicely decorated and airy. The... More

Stayed here a few times and just looking to come again soon. Perfect for our girls get away, especially being able to fit 4 of us in a room. We keep coming back mainly due to the breakfast :) also enjoyed a dinner there too. Good pub grub and atmosphere.

We have been here a few times and used it both as a pub for a drink and as a restaurant for meals. The car park at the back can get full quickly on a Saturday evening but parking is possible on the street at the front The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming, the beer and cider selection is good....

We stayed at the New Inn Halse whilst visiting family just before Chtistmas. We chose it from the reviews on Trip Advisor and found it really nice. The welcome was great, even though we were too early and the place was still locked up. A very kind and nice gentleman local helped us raise the owners to get us in... More

Stayed recently due to a family event in Taunton. Had choice between chain hotel or country pub so, based on price and TA, went for this place. I think we made the right choice. Check in was at 5pm, which suited us. The host was extremely hospitable and the beer was good. The room itself was adequate but not special... More

I stumbled on The New Inn by accident . The Landlord and his wife were most welcoming and helpful - they allowed me to stay overnight in my Motorhome, in their carpark. A kindly act for which I was most grateful. It was a pleasure eating in their lovely restaurant.

We booked two nights at The New Inn in Halse (near Taunton), based on some earlier reviews. We had an excellent stay, and want to commend our hosts Alan and Tracey, Kellen, and the entire crew at the hotel, restaurant, and pub. When we knew we'd be arriving late for the first night, we called ahead - and Tracey kept... More

If you want a 'plastic' type place then go for a Premier Inn type. This is just the opposite.. full of quirkyness and character. We stayed here as a last minute arrangement since I was performing at the Taunton Steam Fayre and Vintage Rally, so booked it online. Most of the other rooms were all taken. Our room was slightly...
