A popular place with good food and surroundings, although a little overpriced for similar fare elsewhere. Plenty of parking and staff looking to entertain, try the quiz night always a good time!

My relatives wanted to meet up and all have a meal together. The Bower Inn was a natural choice as it was central to all of us. Nineteen of us booked in with a pre order menu which was excellent as there was so many of us and it was a Saturday evening. They consulted me on what table settings... More

Had lunch here again last Sunday. There is always a great "buzz" of people enjoying themselves The staff are just so naturally friendly and helpful . The "Boss" is always around making sure it all happens. The traditional Sunday dinner is really good . We always enjoy our Sundays at the Bower

Could have one of their cheeseburgers every day, Comfortable friendly place, only criticism is that seats are sometimes packed close together. Family like it.

I've eaten here several times and each time I've been very impressed. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and has a very homely feel. We were very warmly welcomed and were able to sit by the fire and have a drink before going to our table. Each time I've visited it's been very busy, but still the service time isn't... More

the place was busy, noisy and clearly popular but I found the food average and overpriced - possibly to keep the locals out of the restaurant and this seemed to have worked. The tables were crammed in and even placed in front of the signed fire door. It may be for others but this was not a relaxed and enjoyable... More

Thanks for the review. Yes, we are busy Saturdays and booking is always advisable. Generally, on Saturday nights, The Bower Inn is filled with local people, looking for a venue where they will get good food at a fair price and attentive service. Hope to see you again. Peter More

The Bower Inn has been our regular for quite some time and the reason being the meals were outstanding, some of the best in the country! The staff, as always, are fantastic and we haven't experienced any slow service in all the times we've visited, even for our big parties! However, I'm not sure if a chef has departed or... More

Over the past 3 and half years we have worked hard to maintain and where possible improve on the quality of food and level of service we deliver to our customers. We have been fortunate to retain top people in key positions, certainly Candida and I both recognise the need to be consistent regardless of personnel. Rest assured, all our... More
