This inn has a great history. Initially a slaughterhouse, then a coach house, it became an inn in the mid 1700's so you can imagine the feel of the old English pub. The staff were friendly and accommodating, and the manager had a good sense of humour believing that the poms are going to win the ashes this season. The... More

What a pleasant place!! After a week away in Taunton and plenty of exploring neighbouring villages we found many nice places but this was near the top. A traditional small village English pub with friendly staff and friendly locals. Sit at the bar or on the couches and chairs and just chat with a good beer or cider. We had... More

This is a terrific little pub. Sure the room was not four star but the bed was comfy and the shower had water pressure. The location was idyllic. The other thing which worked was the food. Fabulous! Try the prawn rissotto or the class curry-yummy. The breakfast was terrific too. Best poached eggs around. Well worth the effort to get... More

We recently stayed at the New Inn, which is set in the tiny but very pretty village of Halse. The accommodation is reasonable, if not spectacular. The ensuite bathroom - being a modern addition to a period property, and having no windows - was a little musty. But the room was clean and fit for purpose. At he price we... More

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.
