Fantastic Sunday lunch

We visited this country pub for lunch and to catch up with a friend. Despite living within a few miles we had never visited the pub before and did so on a family recommendation. We were not disappointed. Whilst being down a country lane it is well signposted. It has quite an extensive menu with 'Specials' and provides service which... More

We found this place on Trip advisor and decided to give it a go. We did have trouble finding it as the satnav took us into the middle of a nearby housing estate. However our perseverance was well rewarded. The staff were welcoming. The food was very good and nicely presented, The Goats Cheese starter was exceptional and the puddings... More

Thanks for the review - tip for Sat Nav - put the address "The Bower Inn, Bower Lane East Bower" into navigation, do not use post code. Failing all that, look out for well placed brown signs. Peter More

Over 2 years have probably visited about 12 times. First year every visit (approx 10 times) was great and always told them so. Approx 12 months ago had to politely mention a few issues when having a meal for two. They were sorted but hardly with a smile. We stopped going. Tried again six months later and it was worse....

It's hard to pick up specific issues when the review is 2/3 weeks late. However, I am sorry you have gone off The Bower Inn. I can assure you, however, that all of us, from owners to staff, continually strive to deliver a consistent quality of food and service. Regards Peter More

Had a lovely evening at the Bower Inn. Staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. Enjoyed 3 courses which were very good but not in the 'great' category in my opinion. Only negative, Not enough haddock in the fishcakes!

This is a gem in Somerset. The food is very good and the service was equally as good. The owners took our order while we were at the bar with friends and took us through when it was ready. The serving staff were attentive without being in our faces. We had various dishes, starters including cheesy garlic bread, goats cheese,... More

This is one of the best meals out I've had in a long time! The food was cooked to perfection - I had the duck with cherry sauce and it was so tender and full of flavour. I was a little disappointed that it didn't come with more sauce but when I mentioned this to the waiter I was quickly... More
