Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have eaten here many times. This occasion was for Valentine's Day, which offered a fabulous set meal. I started with pate, my husband had the whitebait, and then we both had gorgeous beef bourgignon. We shared a triple dessert platter. And with a glass.of...prosecco and a red rose on the table. As ever the service was exceptional, and the owners really friendly. Highly recommendMore

Taking the last available indoor table on a Saturday night, we were treated to a truly great meal, cooked to order, at a really reasonable price. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the staff were professional and concerned for great service. Warmly recommended.

What a super evening! We wanted somewhere with a varied menu offering more than one Vegetarian dish. We were not disappointed! My husband said it was the tastiest Veggie Burger he had ever had. Everything on the menu looked so appetising that we ended up...sharing a desert as well as having a starter, something we never do normally. Both food and wine were very reasonably priced. Gary was a FAB host to the extent that, when he couldn't order us a Taxi back to Dunster, he nipped home to get the car and drove us back to our B&B! Definitely above and beyond. Thank you.

Attractive restaurant. Attentive staff. Restaurant had great reviews. I had steak and kidney pie with new potatoes and veg. Delicious, couldn’t fault it. My sister had chicken curry which looked great but the chicken was so dry it was difficult for her to swallow, lovely...mango chutney, popadum and rice. She should have complained but she didn’t feel she could as she ate most of it. My brother in law had the yearned for cod and chips. He said it was edible but it looked like something I might have had in my freezer from Iceland. Average size triangle of fish with a pale flat batter on it, a small amount of chips and half of those were bits of chips. Definitely not worth the price. He also felt that his starter of whitebait was something that had just been got out of a freezer, but again he ate it. I said he should have complained but he said that he ate it so didn’t feel he could. A very disappointing end to our minehead mini break.More

This is a great restaurant for hassle free gluten free dining. The menu has a good range of choices, food is delicious and the service is excellent. The GF options are an integral part of the experience. We ate here twice on this holiday, but...have also visited in the past and had an excellent meal that time too. Booking is recommended though as it is quite small and very popular.More

Birthday meal for my better half, absolutely superb. Service was fantastic, very lovely clean traditional building and relaxed atmosphere. It is a little more pricey than other places in town, but honestly so worth it. Thank you for having us and all the best for...the future :)More

Booked this restaurant as the main place to eat with friends for a long weekend in Minehead as it was number one on the local restaurant list. We were not disappointed. Faultless service, excellent food, good menu choices, quiet background music, and friendly ambience.

A popular restaurant with excellent food - so we booked ahead! The prices are good, but food was excellent. We went there twice during our week in Minehead. Staff were very helpful. The meals were mostly English classics. But there the comparison ends, because the...food served was excellent. Their home made steak and kidney pie was a-ma-zing :). There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant - several local folk who were regulars there from the way they were greeted and known to staff. Always a good sign!More

Lovely find in Minehead along the avenue, we stopped for lunch after seeing the specials board and were not disappointed. Family run establishment, Kim was lovely and so was her husband/partner/live in man friend, i think his name was trevor or Manuel, he spoke a...little Spanish?! The service was good, we just wanted some water and lunch which didn't disappoint. We had a lovely pork and apple burger with colslaw, onion rings and home made chips. If you are in the area and want somewhere to get a good meal this is your place. Good luck Kim and the team, gracias!More
