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 had a wonderful stay at The Litton, staying 2 nights to celebrate my husband's birthday. The staff were always very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The dinner was delicious, not your usual gastropub food which was a real bonus and...why we chose to stay there. Breakfast was also very good and so well presented. We would certainly recommend staying here!More

The menu offers some traditional food but also some more untypical meals, which was what we went for. Everything was delicious.

Went for a weekend away with my wife. We didn't know what to expect as we picked farily randomly but I have to say the place is briliiant and the staff are even better. Its a proper olde worlde pub with wooden beams, stone walls,...low ceilings. It has a several sitting areas including terrces and a whiskey bar. The food and drinks are very good, espectially the cocktails! The staff were so attentive, we chatted to Ollie at the bar for most of one eveneing as he made us our superb cocktails and on another evening when we couldn't get a taxi to another pub he dropped us off there! We stayed in a lovely large room with sofa bed if you needed it, it also had a private terrace (although you can see onto the terrace from the carpark). It's a great location for adventuring off into the Mendip hills. We had a lovely walk straight from the pub. Aboslutely recommend.More

Went to this resturant over a year ago, but the memory still haunts me! My friend ordered the ‘Focaccia’ which was about £5 if I remember correctly..and it was basically a slice of Hovis bread.. when we mentioned it didn’t look like foccacia to our...server she got very defensive and agressive, and started showing us pictures of the bread baked in their kitchen. We didn’t doubt it was homemade, but to claim it was focaccia was disgraceful 🤣 (please see the picture taken of what we got vs a Google search of actual focaccia!) On the bright side, the other food we had was okay.More

We stayed at the Litten following our daughter’s wedding in West Harptree. What an amazing pub. I had to book in at six and leave the party due to a disability that did not allow me to stay for the evening party. I was welcomed...and assisted upstairs to my room. The young man was so helpful and got me some milk so I could have coffee in my room. Food was available if I wished. However I had a wedding meal. The rest of my family arrived at midnight. The following morning we had breakfast together 14 of us and it was superb. The room was luxurious and cosy. The staff were amazing and we totally enjoyed our stay even though it was brief and it rounded off a fabulous day for my daughter and family. Highly recommend staying and eating hereMore
