Well worth a look

What a wonderful pub restaurant this could be. Lovely setting in a gorgeous Somerset village, a large local community ready and waiting for something spectacular right on their doorstep. I guess they are going to have to wait a little longer. Sadly we can't reinforce any of the points previous reviewers have made about this venue. It may well be... More

We dropped in for a late lunch (2:30pm) yesterday half way through a circular walk. Great welcome, friendly people at the bar, lovely mushroom soup, crispy ciabatta, nice salty butter and a burger to die for. 'Nuff said?

I go when I can for a soup lunch. Since the new owners came, I have really enjoyed the less cluttered surroundings, the sense of calm and well laid tables, and three out of four of the soups have been what I can only describe as stunning, so much so that I could have had a second bowl. The only... More

This Pub/ Restaurant serves the very best Sunday Roast we have ever tasted, aside from this the rest of there menu is the best we have had, I certainly recommend it to any one But don't go to quickly as I want to save it for me and my Family.

The food was delicious ( sea... More

I organised a dinner party for nine. We had a three course meal. The food was absolutely superb. We had a proper a la carte fayre. The black pudding quail scotch eggs were amazing. The rumps of Lamb were excellent quality and cooked exactly to perfection. The brie de meux dauphinoise potatoes were the best I've ever had. I had... More

Popped in for lunch on New Year's Eve, after looking for a bite to eat on TripAdvisor. Lovely place, log fires burning. Small lunch menu, which was fine for us. We had a couple of club sandwiches with chips which were really tasty. Looking forward to coming back for lunch sometime.

Visited the Waldergrave today with my Son and his girlfriend and the three of us all enjoyed our meal. The service was good and were introduced to the new owner who is defiantly following in the footsteps of the previous owners, good food, good service great atmosphere... Well worth a visit
