Are from the Christmas menu. As a group we were disappointed in the size of the meal. There wasn't much veg, a few carrots, some undercooked parsnips and some frozen sprouts. Using fresh veg would have been a huge improvement. Would have been nice to have the vegetable in a side dish too. The roast pots were absolutely lovely.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting family and when we first arrived was happy with the greeting from the young male member of staff who was polite and friendly, we quickly ordered some food before being shown to our room to put our bags in before going down for dinner. The room was nothing short of filthy and...

Only stayed for one night as in the area on business but very impressed with the warm welcome and efficiency of the service on offer. Room was extremely adequate for my needs and although the furniture was a little dated it was more than comfortable. Only a thin spread over the mattress through which the springs could be felt but...

We booked for two nights as The Somerset Arms were catering for the Wake for my brother's funeral. All staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. I'm a coeliac and loved the fantastic gluten-free menu - the best I've ever had! No in-room wifi but available in the bar area

Had the belly pork which was great, very friendly staff and dog friendly as well. Good pint shame about the parrot (or the lack of parrot). Close to the canal so good for a dog walk to work off the lunch.

I booked the Somerset Arms for a birthday meal. On arrival the place was warm with a nice log burner in the middle. We were showed to our table by a really friendly waiter, drinks orders taken and specials board placed next to the table for us. The menu is varied and good traditional food, however when it arrives you...

Very friendly people (Mick and Loran) serving very tasty Sunday lunches and excellently kept ales. Stayed over using Brit Stop and it was a great start to our half term break. Dog walks along the canal in both directions only metres away with field as well although dogs are better on lead here due to cattle. We will be back.

I had stayed for 3 nights on a business trip. Found the rooms to have no soundproofing at all, so I did not sleep well during stay. shower virtually unusable mostly because of restricted shower hoses and heads. Earlier breakfasts would be better. Food was good though.
