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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed for 2 nights , BnB...we stayed here after recommedations from family member and it did not let us down, we were attending a funeral but was so relaxing, the staff were really friendly and welcoming, we had 2 evening meals, which were great and...the breakfasts...well..one word.. sumptuous..... it definitely kept us full til late mid afternoon, would be great for families in the summer as lots for kids to do. Only 2 negative points, 1, no dogs allowed in the bar, which is understandable in good weather but when cold ......... 2, the shower tray was slippery when wet, needs something that is non-slip But overall....EXCELLENT...would defo go back if we were down that way again well done to you all, a great team....keep up the good work....More

Absolute bargain stay and fantastic value for money. The staff could not have been more friendly and the food (evening meal and breakfast) were perfect. Easy to find and nice quiet, clean room - would highly recommend…

Called here again after racing at Wincanton.Shown promptly to our pre-booked table of 5 people. Immediately asked for our drinks requirements which then took a very long time to arrive although only 11 other people in bar/restaurant. Had to ask if heating could be put...on as restaurant area was cold then told heating was on a timer.Other diners arrived whose food orders were taken before ours. Once we finally ordered food was good, hot and nicely presented.More

Great value for money destination inn. Ideally located near main road and public transport links. Large easily accessible carpark, Family weekend away at the races staying in rooms 10 & 11, comfortable and warm, well appointed plenty of storage. Accommodation situated next to main building...so very quiet overnight even though a busy weekend. Obviously extremly popular with diners but tables designated for diners have migrated from the main restaurant into the bar areas this appears to have compromised the bar space for those who just want a drink or pre drinks for those who arrive early. We were fortunate on our first night that we were able to be accommodated at our booked table early but on the busy Saturday were not & felt it was very cramped for pre meal drinks. The menu was served exactly as described & food to a very high standard. The carvery at dinner and the breakfast buffet were kept well stocked and hot with Plenty of choice. We all had something different over the 2 nights and weren't disappointed. All the staff including the housekeepers were very knowledgeable ,friendly and welcoming our rooms and the venu in general spotlessly clean. WiFi was patchy at best but this really didn't impact on our stay. Some of our group tried the wines red and white and would have happily paid more for a better quality range.The bar was well stocked and we received excellent service even though a very busy weekend. I've rated 5 stars as couldn't justify only 4 being a solid 4.5 in our opinion. Will definitely be visiting again and would confidently recommend a visit & checking out the website to view the outside areas which must be amazing in the summer.More

Stopped off for a meal with the family. Pub is well positioned as a mid way meeting point. Had the chicken leek and ham pie with vegetables and sweet potato fries. Meal was delicious, with the vegetables cooked just right. Volume of food was good...without being too much for me. Range of options on the menu seemed to be quite good with a good range of vegetarian (possibly) options available. The seating arrangement was comfortable and the staff friendly. I recommend.More

We met up 3 families to dine here with children. Large tables inside and out if required, we booked ahead due to the size of table required. We had a good afternoon here. We ordered drinks on the outside veranda, overlooking the childrens playpark. We...had reserved a table for 5pm so we went into the restaurant which was very cool. Really friendly staff. The meal sizes were good portions and the prices good too. Well cooked and delicious food. The children all enjoyed their food. The playpark kept the children entertained before and after dinner.More

Mum & I eat out every two weeks so as we hadn't been to this place before, I thought we would give it a go. After a leisurely half hour drive, we were both pleased that it was well worth the trip. The place has...a great ambience, the staff were friendly and the food was definitely impressive. We shared dusted chicken strips & a warm cajun chicken salad followed by strawberry pavlova - all of which was very good. It is a great stop for those passing by & particularly great for those who like outdoor dining as it has a very large seating area. We will definitely visit again.More

They definitely have Thatchers on tap but I am sure there are others... you might be best to go to their website.
