“Beautiful hidden gem”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

This hotel/pub is set in a beautiful hidden location in Cannington in the heart of Somerset. It clean and very comfortable, great value for money, all staff are really nice and helpful. Breakfast was served at our leisure beautifully cooked and well presented. Will be staying there again definitely.

“Great hospitality and welcome from all the staff”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

I have lived in the village for 4 years but have never eaten in this pub/restaurant, not for any particular reason just always used it as a place to have a drink.
Met friends there on 2nd July, didn't plan to eat but a couple of friends ordered so we did the same. I had the curry and hubby had the chilli, both had a kick to them and were very enjoyable. My only comment would be is that both meals came with chips and rice, I thought it was coming with rice but chips were available as an option this was not a problem next time I'll remember to ask for just rice. Lovely meal though

“Great value for money with excellent service”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

The lunchtime menu is such good value, with a selection of specials as well. Nothing is too much trouble and they are very flexible with what you want to put together to suit your taste. A lovely setting and garden, with a warm welcome.
