We visited on a Saturday night, we hadn't booked but the staff member said we could have table 6 at 7pm, and suggested we have a drink in the bar first.

I was out travelling and ate at this beautiful pub whilst in Somerset. The food is superb, the setting wonderful. All the food was freshly cooked and well presented. The service was great and the views from the restaurant window of the Quantock hills was stunning. Well worth a visit.

My husband and I and two friends dined here about 4 months ago, the food was beautiful and also lots of it! However what really stuck in my mind the most was the excellent service. All of the staff were happy and friendly. They had it just right attentive but not overly so. In particular was a waitress, I believe... More

Meat cooked to perfection, vegetables so tasty and all served in a professional and unobtrusive manner. The service was impeccable atmosphere friendly and relaxed, food fabulous and looking forward to... More

The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars was the sandwiches we had (which were great by the way) were advetised with chips,unfortunatley they came with crisps!! which was a bit dissapointing and my wife ordered a...

All of the ingredients are good quality and fresh, which is clear in the taste. While the desserts are a little piece of heaven on a plate. The... More
