Visited for an evening meal (not the carvery that looked very good). Very attentive and obliging staff and mussels were to die for. Friends main meals were lovely, but the belly pork left a lot to be desired - chewy skin, dry meat and soggy potatoes - I left most of it. As usual we were asked if everything was... More

We had a glorious Sunday Carvery in a gorgeous setting with very good service throughout. We've been here several times and would recommend it to anyone. Very good price for a top quality carvery (the meats were really amazing and the desserts were great too!)

Happy 30th birthday to my lovely sister - a few days before the actual day, but seeing as we had to travel to Bridgwater then it was a good idea to combine both events plus miss the actual Mothers day mayhem. We've been to this restaurant before, in fact for brothers 40th a couple of years ago. Still good. :-D... More

Stayed here for one night, will not be returning. Found my room cold, missing curtain in the bathroom and wall lights not working. The kettle was dirty and so was the one that had to be replaced. B/fast was left outside front door from the night before which the birds were delighted with.

Went to last Sunday's Carvery for the first time, was extremely impressed all round. The food was great, with lots of choice for different tastes. If I had a teeny criticism, though the downstairs restaurant service was excellent, they could do with more staff in the bar upstairs, there was one poor lass run ragged! Over all though. .a great...

I thought we had found a little gem here but it turned out to be a large mouldy lettuce! (To put it politely!) Had a 3 night stay recently and were bitterly disappointed, cheap and cheerful sums it up, cheap rooms which looked like they had had a lick of paint recently but it didn't distract from the mould in...

Went to the olive mill for a birthday meal. Fantastic choice on the menu, and I'm a picky eater. The food was absolutely delicious and not at all over priced. Wonderful service and a fabulous experience was had by all.

This location offers good value for money accommodation. The rooms are fine and some have balconies with a great view of the Somerset countryside. Breakfast is not until 08:30 so not great if you are working rather than on vacation. All in all perfectly acceptable with hood food selection in bar

The restaurant is clearly the strength of this place - excellent evening meals and lunches and realistic prices - but it is also a nice place to stay for one/two nights being very handy for the Somerset Levels, Glastonbury etc. Some reviews mention that the residential part looks a little tired but refurbishments were taking place whilst we were there...

Stay was nice and the room was very clean, however I am confused as to why a restaurant that was supposedly excellent, was unwilling to poach an egg for our breakfast. Despite this we would stay again and most likely recommend to others.
