My daughter choose to have her wedding reception at The Bower Inn, what a great choice, we all had a wonderful time and the whole day was faultless. Candy and her staff should be proud of what they have achieved. Brilliant

Good but not exhaustive variety (a sensible balance), cooked fresh and presented well, excellent service. Average prices and good drink selection. Felt vibrant on a Monday evening - clearly a choice for locals too (always a good sign)

We had a 2 night stay at the Bower Inn, the staff cannot do enough for you and always have a smile on their faces. The food was good and of a top quality. We had a beautiful clean room our bathroom had a wet room great for me. We will be staying again when in Somerset.

Stayed here for one night on business. Unique location in that on the edge of town and close to the M5 but there is a farm smallholding next door. The room (17) looked out onto a field of sheep and geese. That would explain the nighttime noises then. Dinner and breakfast were equally good, and the staff very friendly and... More

We think the food is extremely good although I'm afraid its not as good as when the restaurant first opened. The size of the fish has certainly got a lot smaller. Having said that, the staff are friendly and helpful and the eating area is relaxing.
