We arrived on 5 August, having booked one overnight a couple of months previously. The landlord and landlady had done a runner a few weeks ago and the brewery had parachuted in a new landlady named Carol. Before running away the previous people took everything with them that was not screwed down. The bar area is super but the accommodation is rather shabby, although Carol made us very welcome, apologising for the poor situation we found. Breakfast was rather lovely. Carol needs to be given some time to settle in. .

For accommodation to hit the spot it must provide a few essentials:

- a comfortable bed in a warm room
- a hot bath/shower
- good, honest fare
- a warm welcome

I guess in this day and age you could also add WIFI reception to the list.

Well the Somerset Arms meets all these criteria in spades. The food especially is worthy of note. We had an excellent cooked breakfast served on piping hot plates and equally the evening meals were excellent and very reasonably priced.

Kate and Roy your hosts go the extra mile to ensure your stay is a success and are very knowledgeable about the local points of interest including Stourhead, Longleet and Bath which are all close by.

If you had to be picky you might say the décor to the common areas is a bit tired now and it would have been good to have a shelf or two in the shower room and the shower (unless you enjoy playing football with a bar of soap) but these are tiny issues and certainly did not detract from a most enjoyable couple of days. We shall certainly return and are happy to recommend you give it a try.

Room Tip: If you can book a room with a feature, standalone bath - they're fun.

Our room was large and comfortable even with two children sleeping in the fold-out beds. The room had nice decor and the bathroom was well done with a huge shower! Owners friendly and extremely helpful, and breakfast was great. This is a perfect location for visiting Longleat!

!We were regulars at this pub when the previous owners with the Great Dane were in it. We visited recently and found it had completely changed. Gone was the gastro pub and its wonderful food, the nice decor now looks tired and the food is very average - dont bother driving a long way to eat here

Room Tip: Go elsewhere!
