“A pub with rooms”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Another first time for me on this trip, visiting a typical british pub, rooms above the bar were lovely, breakfast was basic but very well cooked and served with a friendly smile and a chat about the local area. Sampled a few too many halves of the Doombar but the locals were very entertaining. Exminster is a lovely village and this was a wonderful choice for Bed & Breakfast.

Stayed here while doing business at nearby Marsh Barton, was a excellent choice, rooom was spacious and very comfortable, and both breakfast and evening meal were cooked to perfection. A bonus for me was free Wi-Fi in my room allowing me to get on with my work. Have booked again for later in year when down on business again. Exminster looked a nice village in a lovely part of the world.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 1 which was excellent.

The new managers have really turned this place around, the food is second to none. Comparing a visit last year to this year there is no comparison. Wednesday steak night was fantastic value for money at 2 for £10 and the steak just melted in the mouth. We also sampled the fish Friday again at 2 for £10, you can't buy it at a fish and chip shop for that! Completely recommend this place for food and the accommodation was fine too.

Been meaning to use trip advisor and my trip today to the Stowey has prompted me to do just that, excellent, hot, tasty a wonderfully advert for the british pub, busy in the dining room and fairly busy in the bar, we both had roast beef with all the trimmings, and i had the superb lemon brulee cheesecake & my wife had the Chocolate brownies, both were exceptional. will be back for more soon.

What a disappointment . Things are just not the same. Its previous quirkiness with a few oddities were always forgiven due to friendliness and cleanliness, but that wasn't the case this time. Accommodation was dirty . It has changed ownership, and we won't waste our money again. Try the nearby Premier Inn or Travel lodge for good value, clean accommodation.
Heating and hot water is now also rationed, and wasn't on at appropriate times. shame.

Room Tip: Don't even go there.
