Sadly our medium to rare steak was well done so sent it back, and the second one was not much better, for the price the plate of food was very poor, steak 1 large mushroom soaked in oil,and half a tomato, the fried potatoes were nice, they offered us a free drink but good food would have been better.

Apologies again only one steak was was slightly over done however two brand new steaks were cooked to your desired order. it seems that after much deliberation and discussion with chef ( as this never normally happens ) that the second gas ring under the large steak griddle had unexpectedly and unfortunately expired. We agree we could do and normally... More

We had good meals here on two nights of our 3 night stay in Dunster and enjoyed both evenings and the food. The staff were friendly and efficient and it's in a very pretty street off of the main Dunster Road.

I'm afraid unlikely to go for a meal again following tonights experience. Didn't get off too a good start wine not adequately chilled, although the staff quickly replaced and gave us a chilled...

Where do I begin! Honestly, I wasn't expecting much as I cannot stand the thought of 'Pub Grub'. When we came in all staff seemed very approachable. We were seated next and a very classical 'pub' table and I loved the slate table mats and flowers; a really nice touch. 🌷 The little quotes around the room was retro and... More

We called in here to have a meal after a day out. We were very disappointed and felt we did not get value for money. I had sweet potato,spinach and almond curry. There was no taste/flavour of almonds and it was impossible to tell if sweet potato or some other root vegetable had been used. My husband ordered the steak... More

Stayed in room 2 for one night last week. Comfortable room and bed with the ensuite opposite which was fine. Room looked out into the high street. We had no trouble getting to sleep and were not disturbed by the bar which was directly below us. The church bells were audible chiming every quarter of hour but didn't disturb out... More

Whilst on a visit to Dunster Castle we decided to walk out of the rear of the castle (you are allowed to re-enter with your ticket) and find a local pub for lunch. We had 4 tasty sandwiches all vone with chips with a large wine, a cider, 2 kids drinks for £40 ... the price was about what you'd... More

Selected this inn based on the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. Staff, without exception, were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable and the food was excellent - we ate there every night. Strongly recommend that you book a table in advance, as it did get very busy. Dunster is a pretty village with plenty to see... More
