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

Childrens menu was great with my children having ham, eggs & chips and pasta. Main meals of lamb and fish & chips were very nice. Sorbet & icecream for pudding were very good. Will... More

If you are looking for a good local Somerset Inn that serves great food you cannot do worse than to try this place. We booked a table for 18 people to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. A mixture of adults and children were well catered for with a varied menu. Not your usual cheap pub grub but a well thought... More

We were in the area for a few hours and came upon this lovely Inn. The garden and the Inn have great luzury appeal, so we decided to stay for lunch. The service and food were exemplary, we had the pie of the day and enjoyed every mouthful. Not bad wine prices and we shared a pudding a lovely plate... More

When we had the SPECIAL OCCASION MENU there was no chicken on it just red meats etc. I telephoned requesting chicken meal off the MAIN MENU and was told there wasn't one and that if we wanted fish...
