A very disappointing episode. My good friend and I arrived expecting a very pleasant country pub meal. The place was tatty - old and tired - both inside and outside. They had no chicken so when I ordered Moroccan Chicken I was told that the chicken hadn't been delivered! A group of 10 people had booked and just arrived and... More

This inn has a great history. Initially a slaughterhouse, then a coach house, it became an inn in the mid 1700's so you can imagine the feel of the old English pub. The staff were friendly and accommodating, and the manager had a good sense of humour believing that the poms are going to win the ashes this season. The... More

Excellent food, friendly atmosphere, wonderful olde bar area,full of character, will certainly return, rooms could do with upgrading but this only adds to the countryside feel, beds and showers perfect, what more can you ask for

What a pleasant place!! After a week away in Taunton and plenty of exploring neighbouring villages we found many nice places but this was near the top. A traditional small village English pub with friendly staff and friendly locals. Sit at the bar or on the couches and chairs and just chat with a good beer or cider. We had... More

This is a terrific little pub. Sure the room was not four star but the bed was comfy and the shower had water pressure. The location was idyllic. The other thing which worked was the food. Fabulous! Try the prawn rissotto or the class curry-yummy. The breakfast was terrific too. Best poached eggs around. Well worth the effort to get... More

We recently stayed at the New Inn, which is set in the tiny but very pretty village of Halse. The accommodation is reasonable, if not spectacular. The ensuite bathroom - being a modern addition to a period property, and having no windows - was a little musty. But the room was clean and fit for purpose. At he price we... More

This is definitely a destination pub that people who enjoy great hospitality should visit, the food is excellent with a good selection. The landlord Alan is very helpful and cooks up a mean breakfast. The locals are really friendly, you have to drive down a country lane to find the pub, but well worth it.

We stayed here for a night. It is a very tired place in need of a make over. Very basic room that could have been better. Bathroom/ shower was ok though. I think the pictures etc are not very recent either.

Would have been an excellent if it weren't for the soft mattress and the low bed in room 5. I did move to the single bed in the room during the night, which was better. This pub has a nice upmarket feel to it and the service and food were excellent. The room was pleasant, nicely decorated and airy. The... More
