My family arranged a meal at the Bower Inn for my 60th birthday. The surroundings and the staff were very friendly and obliging. I was rather disappointed with the meal as it was not very hot. I am unsure as to whether I will return there to eat.

Food is fantastic, surroundings lovely, staff friendly and if you want to take a large party, you can pre-book all your food requirements before. A lovely bit of the Great British country side and they even won the 'Four in a bed' TV programme. Can't wait to eat there again. I think they do a carvery on Sundays but haven't... More

We were taken to the Bower Inn by friends. The pub was very busy with a wedding but the bar staff were excellent and cheerful. The high level of service continued with the meal, the lamb was very good, the scallops equal to that of previous specialist sea food restaurants we have experienced in Cornwall and and France. A bit... More

Visited the Bower inn for the first time today. It's only a few miles down the road from us and has good reviews on here/won Four in a bed so thought we'd give it a go. Booked a table and turned up for Sunday lunch. The inn is very nice to look at from the outside (even though they're currently... More

Sunday Lunches (and evenings) are always very popular and booking is always advisable. We pride ourselves with the quality of ingredients we use and consequent value for money the meal delivers. Thanks for your review - much appreciated. Regards Peter More

We stopped here for one night on our return from a holiday in Cornwall. The outside of the building and garden was very attractive albeit in a slightly odd location, half way between the M5 and a large housing estate. The pub is nominally closed between 3 and 6 pm and we only drove there to find the location before... More

We took 2 friends to the Bower Inn for a meal as we knew we would get a good meal and we weren't disappointed. As usual, both the service and the food was excellent.

Wonderful experience staying here and had absolutely splendid dinners here. Their Sunday dinner special of pork and beef w/ veggies was fantastic. Everyone here is so friendly, nice and helpful. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible and it was. I also love that it's a dog friendly place.

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
