Fun evening to beat the winter blues!

A super local restaurant within walking distance which has truly stood the test of time. The food was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed both my 1st and 2nd courses, especially my melt in the mouth main course venison. I have been visiting this restaurant on and off for over 30 years. The owners are... read more

Back in Somerset for the weekend, and couldn't resist a 3rd visit to this fabulous gem of a restaurant. In other cities, especially Manchester we pay double for such quality. I had the vegetarian leeks and cream cheese in filo, just beautiful. Anne chose the local Exmoor Venison, and she was very happy. We had the 3 courses, just. The... More

The food was good. Not excellent, not bad, but good, which it should be if you are paying £23 for some lamb on a bit of mash. The fish soup was lovely but the duck main course was quite dry. Great wine. Dining room felt a bit like a 1990s sitting room. Orange walls and dated pictures you'd only find... More

It's become a family tradition to use Blostins for special birthday dinners, this time a 90th, and we are never disappointed. The food is excellent, there is always a good choice on the menu and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

Very warm welcome, good menu and we liked the idea of a la carte or fixed price menu which was reasonably priced. Didn't like the small tables, everything just and just fitted on the table and that was at a push. We will return.

Arrived to the usual warm welcome. Excellent menu with plenty to choose from and superb quality as usual. This is our favourite restaurant and always our first choice for special occasions. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and we had a wonderful evening together.

It was many years since we last ate at Blostins. It was good then and it is better now. The menu was excellent with adequate choice for all. The food was really well prepared and presented. All of us said how good their food was. All in all a delightful experience.

went for a birthday meal. reception was more like you'd expect from a B&B. surprised theyve been there so long yet know very little about basic customer service, although, they were pleasant enough. food was very basic and lacked any hint of finesse. obviously has a cook instead of chef

We booked in advance for a Friday night and whilst reasonably full it was very comfortable. Easily found just on the outskirts of the town. Parking is in the street but not a problem. There is a small reception/bar area on your arrival and whilst not very comfortable, we were quickly shown to our table. The set menu is two... More
