We stopped off here for lunch to get out of the rain in March 2013, having set out walking from our hotel in Ash on a seemingly dry day. by the time we reached Martock we were soaked to the skin and were glad of a warm cozy restaurant in which to take refuge from the weather. Whilst the hotel itself appeared rather simple in appearance, the quality of service became immediately appaent, which tempted us to peruse the menu for lunch.
we opted for a two course lunch of starter an main and were not disappointed - the simple, yet perfectly combined and presented ingredients of the garlic mushroom starter were simply sublime; rarely can you rave about garlic mushrooms, but these were the best we have ever tasted!
As our overcoats dried on the antique radiators of the lounge bar/dining area, we got talking to the owners, who we found to be most amiable (English Husband and petite French Wife with adorable, well behaved children - who also ate in the restaurant). We found the hospitality to be second to none; nothing was too much trouble - in fact, we didn't have to ask for anything due to the attentive nature of the waiter who expertly managed to get the balance between attentive and intrusive just right - when you wanted him, he was there, when we were chatting privately, he was not. The food was excellent; the locally sourced vegetables cooked to perfection.
As we finished our meal and prepared to leave (wrapping ourselves in our still damp overcoats), the heavens opened up once more, prompting the owner to offer to personally drive us back to our hotel a few miles away! We gratefully accepted and undertook to write of our experience in this forum; which we now, as promised, do. Thank you for a memorable day, sublime food and customer service second to none - we shall, without doubt, be back and sincerely hope that this brief critique prompts others to do likewise.
