An upmarket gastro-pub in a somewhat out of the way location, this had clearly had a make-over since my previous visit some years ago (when it was actually called The Ring of Roses) and the emphasis would appear now to be very much on food, although there were nonetheless a few locals in the bar on a recent visit. Although... More

My partner arranged a beautiful surprise stay at this wonderful inn back in August. The staff were accommodating in all aspects of his booking and even went to the trouble of arranging extras such as a chilled bottle of prosseco in the room, a gorgeous chocolate birthday cake for myself and a bouquet of roses in the room with rose...

We had a good Sunday lunch in pleasant surroundings with friendly staff. Three of our party were older folk who wanted small portions. We asked when ordering whether it was possible to have half/smaller portions of the main courses and were told that was no problem. When we came to pay we had been charged the full price for each...

Thank you for your review albeit disappointing you felt it necessary to mark us so badly despite thoroughly enjoying the food, surroundings and praising the staff. I (the owner) was not on the premises during your visit so our staff were only acting on company policy. Our prices are clearly stated on our menu for the dishes that we serve.... More

Obnoxious staff. Food not cooked. Potatoes not roasted. Older man and woman I assume were owner/manager very rude. Pretentious is an understatement. Person replying to negative responses really needs customer service training.

I remember visiting this pub in my youth when it was the ring of roses....what a change! the bar is light and airy, the staff are friendly and attentive but not overly so.

I have just enjoyed a super meal at The Holcombe Inn, Holcombe Somerset. I've had a number of meals there but I feel its time to give a critical assessment of the whole experience.

Sunday Lunch in December is all about enjoying Roast Dinner with friends and family, sitting in front of a roaring fire with a glass of mulled wine and mince pies.
