We stayed here for one night whilst visiting the area. The room was clean and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and made us welcome. There is superb food served in the bar and a hearty breakfast cooked to order.

After a very long drive from Essex via Bristol The Portsmouth Arms was just what I needed, Andy was very welcoming and the locals very friendly, within half an hour I felt like I was at home. The food, beer and accommodation were all excellent, I will definitely return.

Well decorated and spotlessly clean. There is a small patio area with tables and chairs round the side. We ate in the pub, very good food including a good fry... More

Staying in Burrington, and there are not many places to eat nearby, so we tried this one based on the reviews here. Well worth it, the food was really good, and the staff and locals really friendly. Will go here again when we return next year.

Normally the choice for a vegetarian meal is limited but not in this delightful old country pub. From a wide choice I Had an excellent omelette with veg and garnish. Nicely presented. I lingered in front of the log fire, joking with landlord. It was good to see how welcome children were. Although I was not stopping overnight the landlady... More
