I went for a Tues lunch with seven others. We all had nice lunch meals. Choice of smaller portions which was a fair size. The staff were friendly and put together tables for us. It was a vey cold day in Feb and the pub had a warm and cosy feel. The fire was on ..the most impressive gas fire... More

I visited the highwayman Friday night expecting to be greeted by a warm and welcoming pub, I walked to the bar and asked for a tap water much to my disgrace I was charged £1. Furthermore I felt personally victimised by the landlord who gave off very strong aggressive body language. In my opinion the landlords negative attitude towards young... More

On the 4th of January 2017, I went to the Highwayman in Shepton with friends to watch Chelsea vs Spurs. I had only been there once before and the experience was pleasant. A few minutes after sitting down we went to order drinks, I had a little glass of non alcoholic ginger beer, which I finished in a matter of... More

Visited this Hotel and Restaurant as part of a visit to the East Somerset Railway. We like to combine at least one night's stay with a visit to preserved railway - means you can arrive early see most one day and if needed return another day. In this case also visited the Restaurant - excellent menu with nice choice og... More

I thought the food was slightly over priced for what it was. Portion size was adequate for me (but I have a small appetite) but the food was perfectly edible. Stayed over 2 nights - Breakfast was free. An acceptable choice of juice cereal, fresh fruit, full English was 1 rash bacon, 1 small sausage, half a fresh tomato, few... More

Have visited here several times hoping each visit would be better, but alas no. Reasons, Landlord not the most welcoming of people we felt so uncomfortable when he shouted at one of his staff for what we thought was great customer service, preparing tables for a large party and then being told if the party wants the tables put together...

Stopped here on the spur of the moment. The food was hot and fresh. I had steak which was cooked perfectly. My wife had plaice, again this was very well cooked. Good selection of ales, clean inside. Service very quick. Will stop here again

Carvery tastes like cheap, frozen food and although it isn't disgusting, it's nowhere near as amazing as the carvery in the pub right next door. You probably could cook a nicer, homemade roast dinner yourself.

We called into The Highwayman at 3.30 not sure if they were still doing food. They were and we ordered liver and bacon,mash with onion gravy. When it arrived it had been freshly cooked with fresh vegetables, cabbage,cauliflower,carrots,leeks and swede. This was a delicious meal. The barmaid/waitress was very customer orientated, excellent service and compliments to the chef!
