A great selection of quality food on the menu, something for everyone at a reasonable price. I can not fault the staff, they are very polite and attentive making our visit a pleasure.

After visiting Bower Inn every year for my birthday and never been let down on quality of food, we decided to have our wedding here. We had picked the roast menu and every course was delicious, a couple of people said beef was a little undercooked for their personal choice but others said it was perfect. (Can't please everybody). They... More

The bower Inn is located in the country so its very quite, and not to far from the town centre, the motor way is not to far so easy to travel to other locations.

Having heard how nice it was to eat here, ourselves and two friends decided to "give a go" on Sunday evening, 26th April, well disappointment was the word. Having been told that Lunchtime was really busy We found the menu somewhat limited, and the sunday roast we chose was beef. Well I can say that you did not want to... More

I went in here with a friend for a few drinks. There was a wedding party in the back and birthday parties in the dining room, but plenty of room in the bar for a drink at the bar. Good service in a clean friendly place. The food looked good and the wedding buffet was very nice. Good real ale... More

It was my first visit to The Bower Inn and although it was a lovely busy atmosphere, the food was disappointing. It may have been the wrong choice on the menu but l will hesitate to go back as my fish dish was poor. It was my son's 30th birthday and all the family were there. The only dish l... More

Having been before and being impressed I booked this for a special occasion yesterday (17/04/2015). We were sadly disappointed. Last time it was a hearty meal, so we convinced our guests there would be no need for starters, just a bit of bread to nibble at whilst we awaited the mains. As much as the food and combinations were nice.... More

Grilled sea trout, jersey new potatoes, samphire grass, peas and butter sauce is probably not the best choice if trying to get away with a one course dinner. Certainly you are right in that our more traditional dishes; lasagne, fish and chips, burger..... are frequently considered copious. I would normally expect a side to be prepared within minutes, and I... More
