“Great room, great staff; let down by food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We stayed for two nights. We were expecting a village type pub; this one is not a typical village pub. It does seem popular with locals. The staff were friendly.
When we booked in, there were sweet wrappers in the bin in our room, and only half a toilet roll.
We booked a table for food for 8pm. At 9pm we were told that the order had not gone through, but that all three chefs were working on it now. I wished they hadn't bothered. The chips were barely cooked, nor were wife's new potatoes - a very poor start. Booked a table for 9pm the following night. The chips and potatoes both under-cooked, steak quite a poor cut, the pepper sauce was too runny, and the pastry on the vegetable pie was hard. We were offered a "half" by way of compensation.
I must say though that the breakfasts on both mornings were superb.

Room Tip: The Sycamore room is at the front. Sleep is disrupted by noise from road, patrons outside and noisy...

Very friendly, good food, good breakfast and good value for money. The room was very clean, spacious and the bed comfortable. My only minor criticism is that the shower was small but the room and bathroom were both of a very good size.
We stayed here when visiting Stourhead which is a 5 minute drive away.
I would recommend staying here for sure, we were well looked after! Thankyou

Nice friendly welcome greets you here - and it's not a one off either because this has happened every time I have arrived. Excellent food and reasonably priced. Well worth a detour off the A303 for a great lunch or supper.

My husband and I stayed here just for one night whilst visiting some friends in the area. There was a very pleasant atmosphere in the whole establishment. There are only three rooms for B&B but the room we had was large as was the bathroom with a double ended bath, shower etc. The whole room was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was traditional pub grub but was well presented and tasty. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

nice pub and lovely rooms, homemade biscuits in the room with sweets and bottled water. The food in the restaurant was nice and good value, breakfast was very good and kept us from snacking all day!!

good value for money and would not hesitate to stay again.

only slight negative which is not too negative is that the landlady was not too friendly, she was polite and attentive but it seemed difficult to make conversation. Having said that it is better that way than always in your face!
