I only came in for a delicious plate of salad, and they, being that creepy owner Henry, brought me out a 3 course meal which i swear was swimming in Keelys spit. Every time the dirty waitress gave me another wrong meal Henry would be peering over the bar with only the top of his head showing, just smiling. After... More

Being local, I popped in on the off chance for a bite to eat and a drink. Friendly service (and the owner was in a good mood), very large portions and well cooked as well. Rumour has it that it will change ownership in the new year but who knows?

This is a pub with rooms and I feel the only thing that justified a price of £75 for a double room is its proximity to Bath. The staff were friendly and Henry the landlord was very helpful. He also makes some of the best ice cream in England. Our twin room was clean and comfortable but poorly lit and... More

I have reviewed this pub before and it wasn't great. However because this is my local i am willing it to do well so i thought I'd treat my daughter to Sundays dinner. :) I'm smiling. Very accommodating and friendly. Plenty of space in the garden for my little dog to have a wander. Sunday roast was hot and tasty.... More

Drunken rude youths in the bar when we arrived. Room fairly clean apart from dead flies in cobwebs on the window. Breakfast excellent. The breakfast was excellent. I would not recommend this place or return myself.

I can't comment on the hotel accommodation, as we were there for a drink and dinner with rellies who live locally. No signs of the rudeness mentioned elsewhere on TA - to the contrary in fact - nice welcome and very friendly - perhaps it's our nature! Restaurant service was OK, but food was only about average. Steak was good,... More

We spent a weekend driving and walking round Wiltshire and booked into pub style B & B to be able to shower off the day, enjoy a hearty meal and get a good nights sleep and this is what we got at the Lion and fiddle. If you are looking for modern 'boutique' accommodation with a sterile atmosphere this place... More

I live here. This is meant to be my local. Friends stayed here for my wedding and I was furious with their treatment. Whilst trying to make a choice of what they wanted to drink they were met with rolling eyes, deep sighs and tapping finger nails on the bar. Rude miserable and downright souk sapping experience. Went there again... More

On the advice of the "lead" bar maid, if I have a complaint to make, do so on here:...(or write a letter!!) Evening began wonderfully, nice local pub atmosphere, cheery young barmaid, who didn't hesitate to wipe the table for us after the last customers left. Not being anal here but table was really messy. So, my Mother, aunts and... More

Basic room at reasonable price but poor lighting plus missing bed side light so no reading. Printed wifi code in room was incorrect as discovered late on. Restaurant service was poor then very ordinary meal with complaints made by the other diners. Lady in charge insistent that an Irish coffee was made with Baileys. Partly redeemed by a good breakfast... More
