We decided to have a lunch at the Washford Inn as part of a day on the West Somerset Railway but we left disappointed and hungry. We ended up having a chocolate bar in the station instead.

We weren't looking for the pub of the year... but we at least hoped for a friendly welcome, a decent sandwich or a Cornish pasty... even decent fish and chips would have been a welcome bonus.

When we arrived about half past twelve the place was empty apart from three bar staff.

The place looked a wee bit in need of a through spring clean but we thought that it would do for a quick bite to eat.

We sat down, looked at the menus on the table, made our choice and went to the bar to order food and drinks. Once one of the teenagers behind the bar reluctantly broke off her conversation and took our order, she gave an "errr!"

A few moments later she was back having spoken to the boss just a few feet away... The kitchen had just decided that it wasn't doing food unless we wanted a curry or a chilli con carne!
Even that would have taken about half an hour!

We tried to negotiate for a sandwich... but this was the inn with "no bread"... at 12.45 p.m. on a Tuesday lunchtime.

It was then we understood why the place was totally empty.


We liked best that we hadn't parted with any cash before we realised just how bad the place was..

We liked least the take it or leave it attitude of the staff and management.


Top Tip: Find someplace that will actually provide the food on the menu

Called in to check out the menu late one afternoon. The manager welcomed me and showed me the menu while apologising for it's simplicity, they had only been in the pub for a week ( nov 2012). The inside was homely, clean and warm. I returned later for a meal with my husband and friend. We had the best steaks and gammon we have had for a long time. When I spilt a pint of coke it was mopped up, replaced free of charge and I was made to feel comfortable about my accident. The whole evening was perfect and I would urge locals and tourists to give the new managers their custom and support. Lovely people. Good luck for your future. Hope you aren't flooded!!

Lovely clean room, all newly refurbished and plenty of space. Lovely hot shower too. Evening meal was lovely and breakfast was too, only spoiled by some other guests who chose that time to have a moan to the waitress about a few trivial matters instead of complaining to the management.We would definitely stay again and hope that the other guests would be more considerate next time.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 6. Its lovely.

Room was ok, except there was no hot water at 9.30 at night because someone had turned it off!
Breakfast was ok, except that they ran out of eggs and didn't know what Earl Grey was!
Dinner was reheated and dried out. Only 50% of the rice was edible, the rest was congealed into lumps and the steak varied from well cooked to raw.
We won't be coming again.

Room Tip: Make sure you're not over the bar!

Sam and Dave made us feel very welcome and comfortable for the first night of our first family holiday. The room was more than big enough to fit the cot for our 1 year old in and have room to walk around it. Breakfast seemed like there was no end to it (nice to hear the steam trains in the background whilst eating a cooked breakfast). We will definately be visiting again next year.

Allan, Jenny & Iris.
