This is definitely a restaurant to visit , their Sunday lunch is outstanding. All home made I would definitely say, I had the beef it was delicious and tender. We also ate here on Friday evening, the meal was of the same high standard. The restaurant was busy, so would book if you plan to visit. If you like desserts these are also wonderful. They clearly have an excellent chef, he should be congratulated.

Stopped in passing for Sunday lunch, the staff were really welcoming, good beer choice and the food was fantastic. Great choice and a couple of specials but we all went for the Sunday roast which was great...

My family and I ate here a couple of times while staying in Wookey Hole and would highly recommend it for both lunch and dinner.

Although the menu's are not as extensive as the large chain pubs there is something for everyone, and the menu's are well thought out. Portions are generous and the food is of a very good standard with the majority of the menu being sourced locally. To compliment the food there is also always a number of different local brews available alongside the 'usual' beers and wines.

Staff were very friendly and attentive, and a big bonus for us was that the pub welcomes dog's as long as they are kept on a lead and under control.

Overall a very nice place to eat as a couple or a family, with a good selection of food and drink for everyone - would not hesitate to recommend!

Had Sunday lunch at the Wookey Hole Inn. We hadn't booked and staff told us that we would have to wait 40 minutes for a table which we were happy to do. We went for a walk but got back early because it was raining and had a drink at the bar.
A pleasant young girl showed us to our table and took our order. We ordered the Sunday roast and then we waited and waited.
After about 45 minutes someone came and said it would take another few minutes. Waited another 15 minutes and then someone else came round say it would be a few minutes. I asked exactly how long and said I didn't understand how a Sunday roast could take so long.
Eventually the food did turn up and was delicious.
My problem is this:
1 ) An hour and 5 minutes is too long to wait from ordering to service for a simple Sunday roast.
2) Far from being apologetic the staff seemed to have the attitude that it was our fault for turning up and disturbing them on a busy Sunday afternoon.

I noticed that everybody in the restaurant was experiencing the same level of delay but most people seemed quite happy to wait. We had been hoping to see a bit more of the area during the afternoon, and while we didn't expect fast food neither did we plan on spending quite such a long time on Sunday lunch.
Good food but make sure you have nothing planned for the rest of the afternoon.

We had a pork Sunday roast which was a massive portion and beautifully cooked and presented and a steak which was cooked to perfection... Beautiful Malbec wine.. All over a smashing lunch! Incredible food and service!
