Nice pub, but seem a little disorganized. Pre-booked a table for 12, table was only set for 9. We were told to pre-order by email - which we had done - but then didn't have this on file. The email on their website is wrong - which didn't help. Food was ok, nothing great. Mostly cold. Staff were very nice...

A brilliant inn with all amenities! This place has been taken over by new management in October and is a really great find. The hotel had all amenities, really comfortable, immaculate and with pub and restaurant on site means it is a great place to stay. The food was lovely and the breakfast was superb. Staff were friendly and helpful...

24th Dec 2016 Breakfast for 6 with the family. This was the first time breakfast had been served to non residents and it was lovely. We all opted for the full traditional breakfast but there were other options including vegetarian. The food was of very good quality and lots of it. Enough to satisfy 3 strapping lads. The service was...

Behind many dark allies, you can find this quite an average pub. Interior is the normal dark wood, serving few different beers and ciders and food. We happened to be there on a Tuesday that was pie and pudding day, thus we or for that as well. The pies were nothing to write home about - however the service was...

We've eaten at the Bowl a number of times over the years as it's a good half way point for a family get together, and we had travelled over 80 miles to get there and always thought it worth the journey, but yesterday was our last visit. It's still a charming old pub full of character and has so much...

Situated in a very pretty area with excellent motorway access to Bristol (30 mins) and Gloucester quays outlet shopping Centre (30 mins) makes it the ideal getaway from it all while being great for shopping and tourist attractions within a reasonable distance.

Came with my girlfriend, seated by a friendly member of staff. Waited for 25 minutes to be served or even acknowledged by the waiting staff. Bearing in mind we were sat next to the till. Walked out, they didn't notice

Stayed here for a week with work and as well as a beautiful building and location, the atmosphere was wonderful. Lovely food and staff who went over and above at every opportunity. 5 minutes from the motorway but you would never guess! Looking forward to visiting again.

A large group booking on a Saturday Evening was comfortably served and all looked really great. The 3 course meal was very tasty and well presented. A good array of reasonably priced wines and of course a great range of beers. The only comments that were negative were portion sizes... Some suggested they should be a little larger... We will...
