My wife and I needed a suitable place to base ourselves for a 3 day tour of National Trust and English Heritage sites in Somerset/Wiltshire/Dorset. We found the Highwayman Inn on Trivago which for a high season weekend was not badly priced at £80 per night including a decent full english breakfast. The inn is well located on the A37... More

I was going to get the next round in but decided my business would of been more appreciated elsewhere. Would not... More

I stayed here for one night enroute to Cheddar Gorge. Easy to find, polite and helpful staff, good breakfast and decent room and shower. Reasonably priced. Only issue was our room was next to the kitchen extractor, so it was noisy at 6.30 am. OH, and there were low beams in the room, (not an issue, and gave character, but... More

Stayed here for one night whilst away on business. I was on route and got a call from the owner asking if I wanted to order dinner as the restaurant closes at 9pm - thought this was a great touch. On arrival the owners were really friendly whilst checking me in. Was shown to my room which was average at... More

Booked 2 nights on-line very reasonable price, breakfast included. Room was ok but springs in bed were uncomfortable. Good en-suite. Room 1 was very noisy as next to the main road and very fast traffic passed by all night! Other rooms may be fine! English Breakfast was good but basic. Evening meals were edible, typical pub food, veggie options not... More

We stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding in Shepton Mallet. When we arrived, we checked in at the bar and were shown to our room. The room itself was clean and a good size with a wardrobe, dressing table and tv (a little small and far away from the bed but we didn't go there to watch... More

Stayed one night to spend time at Vobster Quay. Room was well furnished, nice tiled bathroom and was clean, however it was small so couldn't imagine staying longer than a night or two. Breakfast was good, accommodating requests and plenty of it. Shower wasn't great but water was hot so wasn't a disaster!

We stayed here to attend a wedding nearby. When we arrived we were shown to our room which was tiny!!! Everything was crammed in, the dressing table and drawers couldn't be used as there was no room to open the drawers or pull out the seat, we had to take it in turns getting ready as there wasn't enough room...

I stayed here as I was exhibiting at an event nearby. Great place. Clean throughout with friendly staff. The breakfast was superb, high quality ingredients and very tasty. I only have one negative point is the smell around the toilets in the bar. I wonder if they were flooded at some point as it is a very damp musty smell.... More
