The Five Dials in Horton serves excellent food, much of which is sourced locally, a varied menu and is a popular, friendly pub. They also offer accommodation and, although I haven't stayed myself as I live in the area, I have heard very positive feedback from people who have.

We stopped here having seen it on tripadvisor. A simple lunch of sandwiches, coffee and a good pint of Otter (£3.00). Couldn't have been nicer. A very Warm welcome and I thoroughly recommend it. A Simple, tasty lunch of good food. The home made onion chutney was delicious.

We travelled up from Sidmouth, Devon (mid-week), to Horton Cross, Somerset to visit some friends who mentioned we should have supper at the 5 Dials before we drove back. Well, what a find! We were actually expecting to find a little local Inn serving the usual pub fayre. We were overwhelmed by the standard of 'pub grub' served to us.... More

Our room was off the garden and had a small well equipped kitchen, bed sitting room and a bathroom with a shower. The other two double... More

My wife and I arrived at the Five Dials Inn at 5pm to a welcome by Sarah our landlady. Although I had stayed at the inn previously, it was the first visit for my wife but immediately she found herself at home. Sarah has a fine sence of humour that puts her guests at ease, not only is this refreshing... More

My wife and I ate at The Five Dials Inn on Wednesday evening 8th June. We had been recommended to this pub by the owners of our B&B. Unassuming from the outside, the interior of this local village pub is clean, bright and welcoming. When we arrived at about 6.45pm, the place was fairly quiet, but quickly filled up within... More

depends on mood of landlord, either good or bad, if bad drink elsewhere,can be very unpredictable at times and not good for custom, it seems to be what ever suits them at the time. not very impressed..

Excellent local pub. Great beer (Doom Bar) and really good food. We had the pie and burger, sharing a goats cheese starter. The staff were very friendly and we were glad we booked, the place was heaving!

You simply cannot fault this great village pub. Lovely atmosphere with lots of locals chatting over a beer. Great food with well cooked and presented dishes. They have a fresh fish specials board which was diminishing as we ate our supper. There had been around 10 or a dozen fish dishes. By the time we left only 4 or 5... More
