Last minute booking for my husband and son. Really warm friendly welcome on arrival. Lovely clean spacious room with very comfortable double and single beds. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Bar is quirky and interesting with shelves full of books there to borrow. The staff who incidentally are all one family are so accommodating . Nothing is too much trouble... More

A lovely place to stop for a drink but I wouldn't recommend the food. We had a dinner there and were disappointed as we expected it to be freshly prepared. OK if you like microwaved frozen dinners but I like something more imaginative when I eat out. However, the staff were very friendly and eager to please and the way... More

We were saved by the friendly staff at The Castle who re-opened the kitchen after 2130 and served up two delicious chillis . The drinks... More

Driving to Somerset on the off-chance, we were distracted by the charms of both Porlock and the Castle Hotel. The hotel has been recently taken over by young couple, Ben and Leanne, who couldn't have been sweeter or more attentive, despite being new to the business. The guest bedrooms were spacious, newly refurbished and with excellent en-suite bathrooms, while downstairs... More
