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

My husband and I stopped by The Bower Inn last Saturday to have a very quick lunch to break our journey. We already knew of it as we had stayed there about two years ago, and were very very impressed by not only the comfort and fantastic food, but the exceptionally tasteful decor in the guest rooms and the pub....

I stayed here last week on business. It was a total pleasure. My room was beautiful, individually designed, with everything I needed. The bed was possibly the most comfortable I have ever stayed in. Dinner in the restaurant was an absolute pleasure, beautifully cooked and elegantly presented, as was breakfast. The hosts and staff were welcoming and friendly without being... More

Just returned home from a weekend in Somerset and a short stay at The Bower Inn. What was meant to be a quite weekend turned into an expensive visit to Clarke's shopping village, although great savings were made. Expectations either impress or disappoint - but with The Bower Inn, our expectations were easily met and exceeded. Peter is a very... More

Don't normally write reviews but this is the second time I have visited for food and although the meal was nice from the minute you arrive you are rushed to order your food. Once ordered the starter is brought swiftly which is good service but the waitresses and waiter are constantly walking past your table to quickly clear away to... More

I guess if we're going to get criticism for the pace of our service, I would rather this than be thought too slow. I would recommend that on you next visit - tell us you would like to take your time and we will be very happy to slow down your evening. Regarding the coffee - a scenario when honesty... More
