We visited The Bower Inn again last weekend (we first stayed there a couple of years ago and have also eaten there since) This time we came with relatives and stayed two nights and totally loved it again !! From the beautiful exterior, fronted by its cottage garden and weeping willow, to the simply gorgeous, warm,cozy interior, with open fire,... More

We were a family group of 10 for lunch and I think all enjoyed an assorted choice of meals. Maybe a couple of the desert portions were a bit on the small side though? With regard to the staff I have no complaints, especially the young men who were cheerful and helpful. We have been to the Bower on a... More

Spent one night in the luxury double, Art Deco room with the amazing bateau bath. Fabulous room, loads of space and the comfiest bed I've slept in for a long while. We had a stunning evening meal, everything was delicious and the service was excellent. Great beer too! Loved the whole place, beautifully decorated and very clean and tidy. We'll... More

Me and my partner visited "our local" this evening for the first time and we was very impressed! When we first arrived we had a slight wait at the bar due to the staff thought we were with the party in front of us! But after this slight blip we were served by a lovely friendly lady and she showed... More

I have been a couple of times for lunch as recommended to me by many people. The first time was before Christmas, the food was great and the waiter could not do enough for your. I highly recommended going to many of my friends and colleagues at work. The second time was not so great. I booked a table for... More

Many thanks for the comments regarding our food. As far as the reaction you received from our staff I am surprised and confused. Having spoken with the team working the shift I am confident there was no intentional slight and can only suggest that there was a misinterpretation of body language. I hope the incident won't put you off another... More

Dinner cost almost 80 pounds for adults, 40 for kids, so i expected something special especially as my grandmother goes there regularly. But no... There was no drink in arrival, cheap & nasty crackers & a put-me-up table & wobbly chairs! .Rrisotto slushy & tasteless, "sorbet" was some sort of PINK ice-cream. One main didn´t arrive, so we had to... More

Naturally we are all desperately disappointed with your comments. We and the team have been giving up our Christmas Day for the past four years with the aim of delivering to our customers a relaxed, value alternative to Christmas lunch at home. We have left the format and price relatively unchanged during this time due to the great feedback we... More

I've stayed at The Bower quite a few times now over the last 12 months. Always a warm welcome, always good wholesome food, spacious comfortable rooms, free Wi-Fi. Convenient location, no traffic noise. Charming owners and excellent staff. What's not to like? Look forward to staying again soon.

I haven't stayed here but have sampled the food. A group of 9 of us had a delicious meal. The menu was not hugely exciting but had more on offer than just ham and chips. I had a steak which was cooked beautifully. The staff were friendly and the decor was very attractive which helped us to have a very... More

I couldn't write a glowing review quick enough after staying at the Bower Inn last night. Our room was number two with the four poster and was perfect for what we needed. All the essentials provided and a very comfy bed made for a great nights sleep! We had dinner in the restaurant and they had a good selection of... More
