We used the Bower Inn for my daughter's wedding reception and they couldn't have been more helpful. The staff were amazing, the barbeque did us proud and we couldn't have been more delighted. We used the marquee and part of the restaurant and were allowed to decorate it as we wanted - even my 18month old granddaughter was entertained as... More

Love going to Bower Inn as it always seems like we have just discovered it, tucked away in Bower Lane. Great hosts and staff and the food is always super value.

Limited menu which is always good in my book, all looked freshly prepared, roasted aubergine for which was a little oily but that is a personal thing. Would recommend and was full of locals which again is a good sign

All our dishes are homemade which tends to dictate the size of our menu. Thanks for the review - hope to see you again if you're in this neck of the woods. Peter More

We reserved a table for Sunday lunch for my husband's birthday, luckily the weather was good enough to sit outside. The decor is lovely and the staff very friendly (and the dogs). The food was good but not quite as good I was was expecting from some other reviews although we will try it again as Sunday lunch is maybe... More

I have eaten here a few times and always had good food served by friendly efficient staff. The pub dog is friendly and the seating area and fire welcoming in winter. Fitted us in for Valentines day and although busy service remained good. Would recommend.

I went to the Bower Inn with a group of 6 friends for Mothers day, the Bower Inn has a nice atmosphere with a very pleasant seating area while you wait for your table, there is a large car park which makes parking very easy. Once shown to our table the food was very good quality and despite the owners... More

Mother's Day evening was always going to be a challenge - coming at the end of a very long day. Flooding into the kitchen just added to the fun and we look back at it and laugh. So glad it didn't effect your evening. Peter More

Lovely pub with good food. I live locally and recommend this pub. I only wish they opened the bar from 3 - 6, i think they would benefit in the summer opening whilst the sun shines on the seating ares out front. Please stay open for longer!

Ok, lets be honest here! I am not easily impressed Saying that I like to be impressed and I have now been to the Bower inn 5xtimes and find it consistently good. The service is friendly but not over the top ( I so dislike waiters constantly interrupting my meal with their bleating "everything to your liking"?) The atmosphere is... More
