Recommended to us by the owner of Polden Vale B&B and what a great recommendation. Good food, good service in a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were very accommodating with our young grandson.

We have visited this pub as it is very local and always receive a warm welcome. The food is freshly cooked and reasonably priced.

We came for a meal this week. I was very impressed with the food, decor and all the staff. The food was very well presented, and very enjoyable. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend coming here for a meal, or even just a drink. Lovely atmosphere.

We went to The Retreat today and decided to eat on the spur of the moment having had many excellent meals ehre in the recent past. Sadly the meal was hugely disappointing and not at all up to usual standards. the food was barely warm...the =waitress was carrhying ghe vegetabke dished with a tea towel which was totally unnecessary as they were not hot, nearer tepid ( i know, I felt them as they were set down!). Admittedly when asked if the food was Ok and on explaining it was nearly cold, the offer was made to warm it up but I like my food pipng hot and steaming when it is served (it will always cool but will never warm up)..and re heating or warming up is not really good practice if the food is pork or chicken! I wqnted to eat with my husband, not after him so declined. This was then followed up by being forgotten (it seemed) for ordering desserts after the dessert menu ahd been given to us. The restaurant and bar were busy but this isnt really a good excuse for lukewarm food then being left waiting to order a dessert until such time as we decided we'd been overlooked and would go home! we love this place and all the staff and managment but do feel this was poor. Sorry guys...we were very disappointed :-(
