Even through I was part of a wedding reception me & my family sat on the sofas near the bar AS PAYING CUSTOMERS the landlady was nice enough to supply a colouring book... More

I would just like to say a few bits in addition to my dads review below (titled the same). To start- he couldn't be more accurate with his reflection on the service we received! Searching for wedding venues was tiring, we felt unheard and pressured into enormous packages and extras that were just not us. We then stumbled across The... More

I stayed at The Bower Inn for 3 nights June with my sister and 6 month old great nephew, while his parents went to Glastonbury. We shared one room, to take it in turns to look after the baby. The owners and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped make our stay such... More

My wife has put a review up on the restaurant side about our daughter's wedding reception and I am submitting this here because having read the previous reviews our experience couldn't have been more different! The Bower Inn did everything they could to make the day the success it was. Helpful to the extreme. My wife, daughter and friends decorated... More

We stumbled upon this place on a Friday night with nowhere to stay. We were tired and hungry. What a lovely, lovely place. They took us in (including our standard poodle), gave us a superb room, gave us a fantastic meal and made us feel at home. I cannot praise them enough, although they were very busy we were made...

We were probably as devastated as you were when informed at the end of the event how poorly we were thought of and how disappointed both you and your guests had been. I would agree that it was a shame to have to close the bar, but as an experienced, responsible licensee and considerate neighbour, I felt that 10 hours... More

I have often passed by the Bower Inn on my way to visit family, it has always intrigued me as it does look very pleasant from the road, despite being sandwiched between the M5 motorway and a housing estate, it manages to keep some of the country manor charm you can see represented in the pictures here. I should mention... More

Having spent some time considering the aftermath of this event it is clear that the route of the problem stems from an agreed delivery of a "roast pork buffet" but the expectation of a "Hog Roast". Two very different offers and clearly defined within all our correspondences. This reviewer has been astute in their acknowledgement that no child friendly or... More

We arrived at the Bower Inn for a 1 night stay en route to a family wedding. We were given a really warm welcome and felt really happy to be there from the minute we crossed the threshold. Our room was pure luxury, from the extremely comfortable antique bed to the crisp white John Lewis bed linen and soft fine... More

My partner,and myself have visited a few times now. :-) The food has always been hot, excellent tasting,and well served. I would recommend, they have more lagers on draft,but that is personal taste ;-) We will continue to frequent,and recommend this lovely Inn.

Sorry about the lagers - very very small cellar I am afraid. Thanks for the review. Peter More
