“good food and good hospitality”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Visited for dinner, the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great, and a nice change of three bean chilli as a vegetarian option. Good range of food all round. Very pleased and would not hesitate to return or to recommend.

All of the forementioned , Refreshment facilities within room . Ensuite rooms. Freeview TV. Free Car Parking. Excellent Garden (when weather permits)
Bar or Restaraunt meals available, you decide ,both great value for money.
Local Pubs/Restaraunts if preferred within minutes walk.
Ideal base for exploring the rest of the further afield attractions in Somerset.
Just as ideal if you have work commitments

“Very rude staff and dreadful food.”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Please note that this is a review of the restaurant only.....

We decided to book a meal at the shrubbery for my mothers birthday, we were met but a very unhelpful waitress who was very concerned about the amount of time our food would take to cook (we were eating at 20:30 and got the impression the chef wanted to leave at 21:00).

When the food arrived it was dry and tasteless, it appeared that it had been reheated. Whilst trying to make the most of the evening the manager hinted to us that we were being too noisy (not the case) and the lights were dimmed in a blatant attempt to get rid of us.

If it really was a problem to eat in a restaurant at 20:30 on a friday evening it would have been much appreciated if we were informed of this at the time of booking.

We will not be returning.......
