Bridgwater is not the greatest of towns to visit but Bower Inn not far from M5 motorway is well worth a visit. The staff are so friendly and welcoming...the food excellent and I would imagine the rooms are good as well !

The food is of a high standard and selection of real ales excellent. Lovely atmosphere with attentive staff. The chefs can be seen through from some seating areas which all adds to the ambience. The building has loads of character & there is a seating area out front which is great during the summer. I recommend a visit to the... More

We stayed at this hotel for just one night on the way to Cornwall. Fairly basic but clean. The restaurant is good and the staff very accommodating and friendly. We were allowed to take the dog in the bar end of the restaurant.

Lovely place to stay. Friendly helpful staff and great location for the carnival. We also ate here and food was really good. Comfortable room and modern facilities. Nice sofas and wood burner in the bar. Homemade vegetarian sausages for breakfast were good. Recommended.

I popped here with a friend as it was local to me and we wanted something quick to eat before he continued with his travels and it was early evening about 6pm. When we arrived they had just seated/took order of another couple. The pub was empty few outside in the garden drinking (review is from the summer) and the... More

If reviews are made to help the business improve, then posting it within days of the event assures a thorough investigation. I should clarify as well that, gnocchi is in fact a potato dumpling which can be served with sauce, but just as often comes fried in butter. The latter version is how we serve it on our menu. I...

Visited with friends yesterday evening as it is a convenient place for us to meet. The restaurant is well presented as is the food but I was disappointed on this occasion with my meal. I chose fish from the specials board and my friends comment was spot on "delicate portion". I always prefer quality over quantity but this was exceptionally... More

TeamBower, Owner at Bower Inn, responded to this review

Thanks for your positive remarks and regular patronage. Regarding the size of your meals I would emphasise that dishes from the Specials Board are generally more restaurant style and therefore can be - yes - delicate. That said, we don't want customers to leave hungry - and certainly many cannot manage a pudding due to having eaten too much. However,... More
