My first trip to The Bower under recommendation of work colleague ..was not disappointed. Decor very stylish ..loved the relaxed vibe with fire very cosy. Service was friendly and attentive. Had a lot to choose from the lunch menu and was very tasty .. recommend the fish! Deserts were fantastic and will not hesitate to rebook now ..thank you

Our first time at this eating place will not be our last. The restaurant is light and bright, the service excellent, the staff friendly and attentive - and food was scrumptious. We both had the scampi, chips and peas, cooked to perfection. The dill sauce was the best I've ever had. Ticked all our boxes.

We stopped one night at The Bower Inn to break a long journey and booked due to its proximity to the M5 and the good reviews here. While the decor is a little quirky and not really to our taste, our room was large, lovely and warm and well equipped. We enjoyed our evening meal in the restaurant which is... More

I have been meeting my extended family for an annual Sunday lunch at The Bower Inn (as a central South West point!) for 4 years now and will continue to do so. I just wish I lived closer so could come more often! The service is always great. Staff are attentive and friendly e.g. they frequently check whether we need... More

Real great hotel. Great staff. Close to M5 but lovely and quite. So helpful and welcoming. Beautiful large room with fab Japanese bath and gorgeous breakfast. Their own honey is worth a try. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed 2 nights. Only downside was trying to find the place (even with a GPS). My recommendation is to stay on the A39 until you see a sign at a roundabout stating Bower Lane/ Bower Inn. Once on Bower Lane you can't miss it.Staff friendly and the food was very good. Small bar area but well stocked with a comfortable... More

When we were pre-ordering the food at this pub I must admit I thought it was quite expensive, however, having eaten here, the food is top notch and the pub has a lovely large but cosy atmosphere. I would definitely eat here again. The waiting staff were all great and good fun, one even photobombing a picture I took. I... More

Visited for dinner whilst in Somerset. I had the caesar salad to start followed by the pork belly. It was absolutely delicious, I thoroughly enjoyed it, the portion sizes were very good too. I had the Cointreau creme brulee for dessert and that was really good too. The staff were very good, polite, friendly and very professional. A great find... More

From the moment we arrived at The Bower Inn, we were really welcomed. Our room was superb, we booked a Supreme King room, which was really more of a suite than a room, with a comfortable couch to watch TV and a beautifully appointed spacious bathroom too. Every member of staff we had interaction with made us feel as though... More

If you are looking for a beautiful B & B with restaurant and bar then try the Bower Inn. I couldn't fault it and had a lovely 2 night stay recently.
