“The perfect place to wind down.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We (and dog!) were given a warm welcome by delightful staff . The room was lovely and light -spotlessly clean, with pristine white bed linen, and cosy bed. And a shower that worked! The food, was exceptional. Fish cakes, and chips to die for! We lingered over dinner and enjoyed a very good merlot! Breakfast was served by the charming chef, - even the bread and jam was made by him. We would recommend Oakhill to everyone, as a place to relax. Nothing was too much trouble, and being able to take our dog was the icing on the cake! Thank you.

Room Tip: We had room 5 which was very quiet, and had a great view of the church, and surrounding countryside...

....and, importantly, not just for middle-aged couples like us There were all ages staying and dining and drinking at this lovely Somerset inn, just half an hour from Bath. We loved the spacious airy dining room and it's eclectic mix of classic furnishings. Our bed was huge and very comfortable, as was the bathroom. But for us, it's the food and the service that makes a place and the Oakhill Inn delivers. The breakfasts, with home made sourdough bread, creamy scrambled egg and smoked salmon set us up for the day; and at dinner the wild boar with rich red wine jus was excellent. The staff were truly hospitable. We stayed here for three nights at the end of April and were very well looked after.

We came across The Oakhill Inn after 3hours looking for a last minute overnight stay Nr Bristol on the internet. From our initial phone call and booking we felt we had found something special and we were really looking forward to our stay. All the staff were delightful and very helpful. The room was very comfortable and shower excellent. The decor throughout was really lovely and we hope to stay again. Our evening meal and breakfast the following morning was excellent and would definately recommend. Sometimes it's so rewarding to find a gem of a place...

Room Tip: Room 5 was great.

A spur of the moment decision resulted in finding this wonderful inn. A very welcoming atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave. The bedroom was a good size, extremely clean and the bedding was soft and comfortable.
The food in the restaurant was high quality, the wine list extremely reasonable and the service un-rushed. We will definitely be going back. A fantastic find.

I had an American colleague with me when we stopped here for a quick lunch . He loved it , roaring fire and nice charector. Choose the home made burgers from the bar menu along with their triple cooked chips...and I can honestly say it was a meal with some class

The guy behind the bar could not have been more helpful

I think its a place that adapts to the time of day and the season. So whilst we had a quick bar lunch , the main evening menu looked very attractive & varied

Definately a pub I would go out my way to revisit

Thank you Oakhill Inn for looking after us and our two pugs so well. Excellently kept real ales, very good food, friendly staff and a lovely well kept bedroom. We couldn't have asked for more. ............
