Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very friendly staff, great rooms, lovely food. Really enjoyed the stay here and it is in a fantastic location to explore the village and the castle on foot. The bedroom was spacious, clean and the bed very comfortable. Very useful that they have a car park at the back ... although it is a very tight arch to get through!

Did not stay here, but had the most amazing lunch here last week after a visit to Dunster Castle. The service was very good and the food excellent. Goats Cheese Salad and Chicken Liver Pate were very good. Would highly recommend a visit here and we will definitely return when again in the area. +++

Our room was spacious, immaculate...

Thank you Clive M for your review. The room is a smallish room which we try to make clear to our guests and is not representative of the size of the rest of the rooms within our hotel, and as such it is clearly described as a budget compact room of which is reflected in the significantly reduced price. Although...

Stayed 2 nights, arrived after a decent drive, the staff were friendly from the outset. We had afternoon tea with a few add ons which was delicious, the scones were home made and went down a treat. After wandering round the village we came back and relaxed in the bar, the decor is fab and so was the 'Bloody Mary's'....
