My wife booked us in here so that we could go and see the Carnival in Bridgwater. Despite the booking site saying check in was 5, in fact we were told that 2 would be OK, which was a good thing. On arrival we were shown to our room (2). Is in a block attached to the Pub, and a... More

Booked for a break travelling both ways to Cornwall. Staff very pleasant, first night arrived too late for food due to hold ups, but they did manage to do a bowl of chips for us which was great. Breakfast was great, the full English was huge, fresh and delicious. On the way back we made it intime for dinner, had... More

Please see my review under the Restaurant section where the Malt Shovel also has a listing. This is a good value country inn with accommodation. Well located for Hinkley Point, Bridgwater, Cannington Court and Walled Garden, Quantocks and villages along A39. All in all a nice place to stay

Stayed mid-week, having come down for a little driving tour of the area, having been born in Bridgwater and spent my early years living in Combwich another mile or 2 down the road. It was my first trip to the area in 20 years, so I had high expectations. Firstly, there seemed to be some confusion about check-in times. The... More

We went here for Sunday lunch on the bank holiday weekend. We were a large family group, including children, and the place was pretty busy (it seems as though this place is a hit with the locals, and I can see why). However, the food was all very good and the service was too, quite a feat with such a... More

We just stayed the one night. It is very rare to find a pub BB that is quiet,and not on a main road. We did wonder how noisy it would be on a warm summers evening though, as the rooms looked onto the child's play area. Good cottage style chalet rooms with luxury bedding. Great pub food, we ate off... More

When I arrived, the staff were a little too busy in the pub to concentrate on me and just handed me a key and pointed me in the right direction, no more information was given to me! The rooms were a really good size, clean and tidy. The duvet and pillows on the bed were great, the only thing that... More

Short stay in order to visit the area and explore the local towns and villages. Become better acquainted with the area. Needed a central location in order to cover to larger area of countryside. Our accommodation was in an excellent position to do the above, also having the advantage of not being on the main road. Also the quality of... More
