re visiting and still have to say this place does not let you down, the food is excellent and I think it has a new chef so keeping consistent with someone new is not often possible but is here. Also check out the cabins they are a lovely stay. Well done all keep up the good work.

We chose this as an overnight stopover and received a warm welcome on a rainy new year's day even though the staff must have been looking after guests till the small hours. We had a selection of starters for lunch and then a full meal in the evening which was excellent - the squid was so good I had it... More

Had a fantastic Sunday Roast for my birthday yesterday. Normally I don't like to have a roast dinner when eating out as I find they can be very hit and miss- but having eaten here before and knowing what the standard is like, we thought we'd give it a go. We were not disappointed... We had the beef and lamb... More

Our Family came here for Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day. The food was fabulous, 5 courses (and catered for vegetarians), the atmosphere was simply wonderful. There were lots of people in the restaurant, but it didn't feel crowded at all. The service was, as always, marvellous. It really made our Christmas very special and we would highly recommend the Holcombe... More

Bought tickets for the Christmas Eve party which included a basket of food each and a band etc. The food was a huge basket of breaded chicken goujons, ribs, chips, coleslaw and a corn on the cob which were all great and served quickly for the whole pub to be eating in one go. As usual for the Holcombe Inn,... More

Ate here last night with friends and had a great evening. Food excellent, venue and service spot on. The desserts could have been more adventurous but we will certainly be back, and very soon.

Lovely food in this delightful pub/hotel. We took our son, daughter in law and new grandson. Food well crafted for starters we tried scallops with pasta, mozzarella. For mains we tried duck, venison, rib eye steak, and fish. All beautifully tasty and nicely presented. Service is good and food is served most of the day.

I am cautious when we go out as a family, but dinner at the Holcombe Inn worked well. They didnt mind the buggy being in the corner, plenty of high chairs, small amount of toys in a basket. Staff were friendly and there is a childs menu, but we didnt use it. Nobody minded we took food for our little... More

I hope that you visit us again, roll on spring with the warmer weather! We have a play area in one of our gardens which includes a sand pit for the children to play in. If you decide to come without your little one we have an adult only tranquillity garden (for some well needed rest and peace) ;) More

Perfect way to spend our first night at the inn and in Somerset; best meal we've had so far, we've dinned here and had breakfast twice. Flawless service, great food and lovely atmosphere, just wish we decided to eat here every night...
