Stopped at the Winchester on Friday evening for a couple of drinks. Excellent selection of draught and bottled drinks, polite helpful staff who went above and beyond, and a large, nicely decoratwled interior. We'll definitely be back!

Awesome service & food - big group of people - all of our food was amazing! From the gammon steaks, the Cajun salmon to the pork belly, the ice cold Guinness - would highly recommend! Taunton is a lovely town, filled with great warm welcoming people!

Our second visit here and our friends told us the ownership had changed. We had had such a great time last year we were a bit wary if standards had dropped. We had no cause to worry! Patrick, Wendy and staff were all great. Open and friendly. We only breakfast here this time but it was all fresh and the... More

We stayed in The Winchester on the way down to Cornwall Good choice! The room was in an annex of the pub and the bed was fantastically comfortable. The pub serves local ales and a good selection of wines and the menu looked like typical pub grub but it was so much more. I had rabbit with prunes and it... More

I stayed here with a friend on 16th July and we were both pleasantly surprised. Having stayed at other B&Bs I was concerned that we were sharing a bathroom with other rooms , but there was no need to worry. Our room and the bathroom were spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the pub. We had a meal when... More

An impromptu visit from family meant booking wasn't possible. It transpired to be the change over day to the new owners. We were accommodated and advised of a smaller menu that day, which was entirely understandable. The food was a little longer than usual but this was also easily excused. The food was excellent. 4 adult and 1 child's meals.... More

Went here for Sunday lunch. I went for the Sunday roast , although there was a specials board.. Choice of beef,pork and turkey. £10.50 for two courses 12.50 for three. Generous portions with fresh vegetables. There are two sittings so it pays to book a table as this place is very popular. There is also a lovely beer garden.

We had a lovely lunch from the set menu. The landlord was welcoming and meant well which gave a good clear relationship with his staff. Could possibly have some background music so there is more of an atmosphere? Food was great and will recommend to locals and others.
