Met up here with friends as it was a good halfway house for us. I was attracted to this place because of the trip advisor reviews of course, the fact that the catered for vegetarians, and dogs. The Inn is attractive and I always like somewhere with sofas! The staff were really friendly and we never felt rushed although we... More

The staff remember you and are so kind, and welcoming. The food is absolutely fantastic. It's priced amazingly for what you receive, but these are (understandably) restaurant prices. I highly recommend the soup, and the goats cheese and red pepper sandwich (lunchtime menu) Bear in mind they open for lunch and then close late afternoon until evening. They have amazing,... More

Comfortable room, brilliant breakfast, easy access to motorways for exploring this area, helpful and friendly staff. We went to birdwatch and this proved to be a very central base for several good areas for wildlife watching. Would highly recommend.

All of us live in Bridgwater and keep forgetting about The Bower Inn, given that it's slightly out of town - you tend to forget it's there. 4 of us out of our group of 6 friends were celebrating birthdays - so decided to go to the Bower to celebrate, it's not too far and meant our taxi bill was...

My husband and I had a lovely relaxing lunch. The service was so friendly and efficient, we were in the bar because we had our dog with us and even he was well catered for. Lots of menu choice and well cooked large portions of quality pub/restaurant food. We just stuck with the lunch options but the quality and value... More

It was my daughters Birthday and her partner booked a room at this restaurant for approximately 25 of us on a week night. It wasn't especially busy, but we were left for ages before orders were taken. At this point, I need to add that the restaurant had requested that as there was a party of us, would we mind... More

Certainly this party was one of the worst experiences we have had in the past six years and I am truly sorry that things did not go to plan and that you felt motivated to write this review. However, to address your key issues: The party was in fact booked to eat at 7.30 pm. Unfortunately, your delayed sitting and... More

We visited The Bower Manor twice this week and would thoroughly recommend it for the quality of food, friendly service and venue. On Sunday we took my disabled mother there for lunch and now there are up to the minute disabled toilets in the new block, it has made things easier to manage. The toilets are very modern and exceptionally... More

This pleasant spot is midway between my home and office and is perfect for a lunch meeting or just to grab a quick bite. It is on the outskirts of Bridgwater (only a few minutes from the m5) so is a handy option if you don't fancy the traffic or parking effort of the town centre. The menu is suitably... More
