We visited the Tower pub yesterday to celebrate my parents 53rd wedding anniversary and we were so pleased that we did. The welcome that we received from the young barman was so friendly and the choice of food on the lunchtime menu was excellent. Some of us chose to have the stovie which was delicious, as were the thai fish cakes. The pub has a large amount of character and the staff and food make this a special place to visit. We will definatly come back again when we are in the area.
It is up a narrow lane that is very tight, but it is possible to park in the village and walk up the short lane to it.

We visited the Tower Inn on Halloween lunchtime and found it nicely decorated, presumably in anticipation of a busy evening ahead. We had good memories of a lovely evening meal a few years ago. However on this occasion we left disappointed. The blackboard proclaimed 'field mushroom soup' as the soup of the day. Well I ordered it and although pleasant enough it certainly wasn't mushroom! My husband had sandwiches and the bread was so thick he could hardly taste the filling. Plus he had some very limp salad with it that had certainly seen better days. Also he was given a dirty fork to eat it with and his pint of beer was cloudy with bits in it. We would have mentioned these things but nobody even came and asked if everything was OK even though the pub was virtually empty, so all in all I'm not sure if we'll bother going back.

We booked in Tower Inn at the last moment, we have been travelling around Dorset & Devon and wanted to extend our week's holiday by 1 more night. We were not disappointed. The location of the accomodation has changed from 23 years ago, instead of above the pub, it was to the side, the room was nicely decorated and bed comfortable, brought back a lot of memories. Rooms now have en-suites.

We decided to have an evening meal at the Tower Inn instead of driving to another pub which we intended to do before we arrived, the meal was excellent, the beer also very good. The staff looked after us very well. The breakfast was also excellent and substantial. Thank you Tower Inn.

A couple of points, careful when driving into the Tower Inn, a little tight! Easier to drive out. Small overcharge on the evening meal, but this didn't spoil our experience. We would certainly return.

Room Tip: If you can, room 1 at front of property overlooks the village, but understand the bedrooms at the ba...

Eating in a group of eleven for an anniversary party we were exceptionally well pampered by the friendly staff. From the excellent draught beer to the well presented, tasty food, I find it hard to find fault with this hidden gem.

Stayed for a couple of nights at The Tower Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the first rate hospitality and food. We were touring the west country and this place provided the best meals, both breakfast and dinner, that we had. The very knowledgable barman introduced me to the drink Monkey Shoulder which I must confess I had never heard of before and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The bedroom was clean and tidy with a good size ensuite although there were no soaps, shower gels etc. provided. Also there is no Wi-Fi and the entrance to the car park is very, very,VERY narrow but all in all it was a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend this place to everyone.

We had visited last year for lunch and really enjoyed the food. We decided to visit again and take advantage of the B&B available. We loved the food again, a really great choice on the menu with a great specials board as well.
The rooms were cosy and comfy. After enjoying a lovely candle lit dinner it was a pleasure to stroll up the stairs to our room. We had a great nights sleep followed by a great breakfast in the morning.
We will definitely be back.
