We were staying in the hotel here,so were booked in for breakfasts and dinner for four evenings. Breakfasts were good,although we found the coffee was very strong and chilly. The evening,meal,we found the starters were very well presented,but the portions were very small.Main courses were good,but again small. All the staff were very friendly and helpful,service was good,and the room... More

This place is situated very near to the bus station in Taunton and is ideal as a lunch spot between coach journeys. I arrived at 12.55 and my departure was scheduled for 13.55. In between I had an admirable snack with admirable service (both received and observed at other tables). The Americano coffee was of grand size - perfect to... More

Ordered two greek salads and two chips. Salad was very small and grossly overpriced. Chips had been either re-heated or re-fried and were very tough to get your teeth into. Very disappointing. Don't bother.

Nice setting but disappointed with the food. Staff were ok and helpful but the over priced food made it a unsatisfactory dining experience.sorry to say but lower your prices as it don't reflect on the quality of the dishes.

We hadn't been here for a while so visited again for evening meal. Pleasant and comfortable place with well trained staff. Food was excellent and can recommend The Fisherman's Sharer with crab, smoked salmon, goujons, Thai fishcake etc. Food prices are fair and service top notch. Only downside is the highly expensive wine prices starting at £20 bottle for decent... More

Needed food, Saturday night hadnt booked! First place we tried turned us away but we got a friendly welcome at Brazz. Menu ranged from comfort food to surprisingly unusual. My wife chose the fish and chips which came with nice chunky chips I succumbed to the oddly enticing chicken caesar burger which came with french fries and a bowl of... More

Situated by the Castle Bow in Central Taunton, and part of the up-market Castle Hotel, Brazz has something of a cult following. It attracts the young, upwardly mobile as well as the comfortable older generation. I have found service to be erratic and sometimes off-hand. Prices are high for the quality of the food and drink provided.

Being next door to Castle Bow, I expected a bit more from the kitchen. 28 days aged steak? It would have tasted slightly different and it was overcooked against what I had asked for. Other menus had•••• unfortunately no impression. Not too bad not so good. I can see they are trying but not the level to serve Castle hotel... More
