Organised a party of 18x to stay @ the Hood' recently, as a base for three days walking in The Quantocks. Lovely old place, well kept real ale, decent wine list & the breakfasts & particularly the dinners were excellent (the Head Chef, Ian, is an ex-chef from the QE2). Rooms comfortable & warm, but if you are in a... More

Was served by Jasmine and Charlie and could not fault service at all. Second visit this weekend stopped in again on Saturday for lunch. Food... More

My girlfriend and I recently had the pleasure of staying here on a Saturday night and found it to be a most enjoyable experience. Rooms are of a very good size, clean, the bed was very comfy and the room had tea/coffee making facilities, a TV and decent storage space. Yes, those to the front of the building do face... More

An unplanned stop resulted in an outstanding experience. Warm and welcoming atmosphere and a perfectly cooked an presented meal. A must visit if you are in the area. Go elsewhere if you are offended by country sports memorabilia.

We decided to give the hood a try for dinner on Saturday night. It was fairly busy but most tables had had their main dinners by the time we arrived. 8pm! t took over half an hour for the single waiter to come and take our orders. No apology for keeping us waiting. The food was very poor and just... More

We stayed for 2 nights with our hound and ate in the pub on both evenings and on both occasions the food was excellent. Later in the evening the chef spent a short while in the bar and also made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was... More

Called in for a drink while passing on our way to Dunster yesterday and spent a very pleasant hour browsing through the Sunday papers and country magazines sat by the log burner. A lovely old pub with character, sympathetically decorated and serving very good food. We visit whenever we are in the area and hope to stay overnight one day.

Like many others we had a truly memorable Christmas thanks to John, Nikki and their dedicated team who made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The... More

The proprietors and the staff were friendly and efficient. I too was there on Christmas eve and was totally unaware of the landlord (John) being drunk or swearing and my... More
