Our family of 9 went to bowlish for Christmas lunch we were very disappointed by the service. One of our party was gluten free and we told them this two months before but when we arrived we had champagne and canapés but when we asked for gluten free canapes they said they had none. The only thing they supplied gluten...

My partner & I stayed here for two nights the week before Christmas as we passed through the area visiting relatives. We were warmly welcomed after a long trip and given a lovely quiet room on the first floor. The hotel was not offering evening meals as it was Christmas week and being busy with booked parties and whilst this...

We needed a room for the night near Brockley and booked at Bowling House. We found it offered a quiet and relaxing retreat from the busy traffic in Shelton Mallett. The bedroom was tidy and comfortable and the adequate breakfast served in an attractive front room.

Had a wonderful meal here to celebrate a 21st birthday. From the canapés served with a glass of champagne through to the most delicious strawberry creme brûlée I have ever tasted, everything was perfect. The service was equally first class.

Wonderful Georgian building full of charm and period features. Martin and Len make you feel very welcome and the food is absolutely delicious. White tablecloths and cloth napkins with shiny sparkling glasses and always fresh flowers on the dining tables. We have held various birthday party celebrations and frequently entertain friends to the excellent value Sunday lunch and never been...

This hotel is wonderful for it's charming character and the rear garden. The food is excellent although you have to be patient as the chef takes great care over all meals, including the breakfast. The house is 18th Century and crammed full of character and charm. Please excuse the warped and creaky floorboards on the first floor as the charm...

We booked Sunday lunch at Bowlish House for a family get together. The house is very nice and has lovely rooms in which to have a pre-lunch or pre-dinner drink. However the car parking was a nightmare! The menus were given to us in the lounge (The Georgian Room) and we ordered our main course. The menu had a choice...

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights in January 2016, and ate here as well. The room was very comfortable, although there was a howling draft through the window casement. We took care of this with some rolled-up newspaper, and the heavy curtains helped. Would not be a problem in summer, of course and it didn't...

Stayed here very recently for a wedding blessing and had a wonderful time. Very beautiful Georgian house with tastefully decorated, very comfortable rooms. Food was amazing and couldn't fault at all. Would not hesitate to recommend and would love to return.
