We come here for Sunday lunch every 4-6 weeks and it never fails to be good. This time as my wife was away, i took my daughter (11) and her friend. We got a friendly welcome and then great friendly service throughout. I had the mixed roast, which was as tasty as ever and a couple of pints of Exmoor... More

The staff were friendly and accommodating. Presentation was very good and and both the wines and food were extremely good value. There is disability access to the main part of the... More

Around 30 of us attended a silver wedding party at the Bower Inn and everyone I spoke to really enjoyed the evening. We gathered in a small room with its own bar where the service was very efficient. The marquee where we ate was warm and very well decorated and would surely suit any special occasion for a large party.... More

For some reason I thought this place was a bit of a dive (maybe because it's Bridgwater... eek sorry) but I was pleasantly surprised! There was a group of us booked, service was a little slow to begin with but the food was quite decent and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was great and the outside of the building looks really...

Four of us ate here last Wednesday evening. Starter included the mackerel, pate and homemade soups which were fine. This place can always be relied upon for great steaks to follow. The somerset apple crumble can be disappointing if you are expecting something crunchy but really, you should be well filled before the dessert course. Good service, choice of real... More

The Bower Inn is a favourite, the food is guaranteed to be of a good standard and the service is always fantastic. Half way house between a Michelin Restaurant and a Country Pub. Can be used for almost any occasion

Stayed here last night and not only was the room fantastic but the food was the best I have had in a pub/hotel in a long long time. On recommendation I had the venison burger. Incredible. The chicken liver pate starter was fantastic too. Coupled with the excellent service and the wonderful breakfast this morning, this is by far my... More
