Love this restaurant; delicious meals and friendly attentive staff. We stop here on our way to Devon , it is just off the A303. The Hake wth a white wine sauce is my favourite meal. Good value, great food and service every time we have visited.

This is an excellent hotel. Staff were friendly and efficient. The food (produce is sourced locally so far as possible) was delicious. The hotel was immaculately clean, and the room itself was very comfortable. I’d definitely recommend this hotel, and will be staying there again
