5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I wanted to take my parents away to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary and remembered At The Chapel which I seen recommended in a number of magazines and websites.

Arriving there on the Saturday, we received a fantastically warm welcome from Catherine, the owner, who showed us round and got us settled into the bar with coffees and newspapers. When my folks finally showed up, we sat on the terrace in the sun and ate delicious homemade pizzas washed down with white wine, before heading out to explore leafy and charming Bruton.

After the delicious lunch, we had high expectations for dinner, which didn't disappoint. The menu is partly seasonal, with something for everyone. I started with possibly the best beef carpaccio I have ever eaten - perfectly cooked beef dressed with parmesan and pine nuts, followed by the crab spaghetti, again cooked perfectly with al dente spaghetti and gutsy kick of chilli. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant and attentive and the dramatic setting for the restaurant in the heart of the village made this a truly memorable dinner.

After a sound night's sleep in our perfectly appointed rooms, I awoke to find freshly baked croissants delivered to our door. These, with a cafetiere of coffee in bed, and a long soak in the bath in the luxurious marble bathroom left me completely relaxed and reinvigorated, ready to return to life in London, but already hatching plans to return again soon.

The imagination and vision which has created this gem is quite extraordinary. A wood burning stove...producing superb pizza's in the afternoon and evening, silently turns bakery at midnight and magically delivers a lusciously buttery croissant to your room at dawn. My room was an elegant combination of distressed wood beams and state of the art TV and entertainment, with monsoon shower and tennis court size bed the perfect finish. My meetings were at the hotel and we ate on a number of occasions, the food was a celebration of all that is great from the wonderful local produce of Somerset and Dorset and every bit as imaginative as the decor. The young staff could teach many much more famous establishments about seamless smiling five star service...perfect!!! Business brought me here, but I will find the reason to return.

Fantastic room, massive comfortable beds, beautiful free standing bath and walk in shower. Underfloor heating in bathroom was lush. Couldn't fault a thing about this place. Evening meal and breakfast in restaurant was fantastic too. Just gutted we only stayed the one night, not the two. Can't wait to back.

Our room was spacious and well appointed. Huge bathroom with old church style windows, rain shower with marble bench and tiles.

Our entree's of Lyme Bay mackerel, saffron, fennel, pine nuts and raisins was perfectly matched and balanced. The main dish for me a medium rare sirloin with green peppercorn sauce, accompanied by baby new potatoes and silver beet with anchovy butter - a taste sensation.

Freshly baked croissants hanging on our door handle in the morning. We had breakfast in the restaurant. Portobello mushrooms and eggs on house baked sourdough toast.

The service was very good with our every request met quickly and efficiently.

At The Chapel is a must do if you are in the area.

We used this hotel as a base for visiting Longleat with our two young kids and have been twice now. Lovely beds and crisp white linen, down duvets and great bathrooms. Great restaurant and in house bakery too with lots of lovely touches like fresh croissants outside your food each morning.

Room and bathroom a good size. Tv and sound system really high quality and a few films stored on a hard drive on the tv to watch for free. Pillows far too soft for our liking so sleep was a little difficult. Lovely bath and separate shower. Proper coffee available in the room. HUGE croissants for breakfast, brought to the room, are included in price and freshly baked by onsite bakery, although if you're here for a week you might get bored of croissants so they so serve more breakfast in the restaurant. Room 7 is on the ground floor at the bottom of the stairs to all other rooms so a little noisy late at night and in the morning as others go past, but seeing as the restaurant is the other side of the wall no noise from that at all. Bakery looks really good so plan to take some things home with us.
