“lovely inn in the heart of Somerset”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

While travelling with elderly parents, we needed to find a place to stay and eat at the last minute after a visit to Wells Cathedral. Manor House Inn fit the bill perfectly. The staff was very kind and helpful, the rooms very clean and comfortable and the food quite delightful. The bathroom mirror would require a stepstool for me to use, but that was honestly the only very small downfall in our room, and the wonderfully powerful shower and heated floors more than made up for that. We'll be back!

My friend and I stayed here as we were visiting the shepton Mallet antique fair, it was ideally situated.The room was in an annexe mews style in a pretty and quiet area. the room was nicely decorated simple and clean the beds were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was fine rather basic but clean,My complaint is that the mirror was much too high up on the wall to be any use for make up and even the one in the bedroom was quite high up but it was only a minor thing the shower head was angled against the wall too. However the room was so reasonable priced these things didnt matter,Breakfast was ok again for the price and the diningroom was very pleasant, We had a very good evening meal there and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitley stay again.

Room Tip: If you go out in the evening you may find when you return you have to park in the road as it can get...

Located in a small village near Shepton Mallet, Somerset, this is a great olde worlde building with a bar and a restaurant next to it. Nice menu in a quiet area, with attentive staff. The food was very good and the ambience made a great reason not to hurry, but stay and enjoy the cozy hubbub of an English country pub.

Stayed for one night (14 May 2012) on our 30th wedding anniversary...we had spent the first night of our honeymoon there...it was unrecognisable from our original stay! This is an exceptional B & B where the staff, food, accommodation, location & cleanliness cannot be faulted. Would definitely return and have already recommended it to family & friends.

We are regulars at this super village inn which is owned by a small company. We booked for Sunday lunch prior to the Big Race and, by golly, we made a good move. That wonderful grey, Neptune Collanges, came home in the National by a nostril to win on Saturday. What a race and what a superb peak to the season for Paul Nicholls and his team in Ditcheat. Having been to the village to see the parades of winners in the past we set out quite early so as to gain a good spot for the 12 noon parade. The day turned out to be brilliant. We met some lovely people in the crowd including Clifford's, the head lad, parents and the late start to the parade went largely unnoticed. Hunger was calling and my wife, granddaughter & I fought our way through the crowd to claim our table in the dining room of this super old pub with its flagstones and old features. The staff were fantastic and we didn't have to wait for a moment before we were seated and drinks ordered. The roast lunch featuring loin of beef, chicken, pork and lamb was irresistible even though there were many other dishes available on the more than comprehensive menu. It was no more than a thrice when the lunches were delivered with giant homemade Yorkshire puds (we all ordered beef!) steaming hot, slightly rare and with crispy roast potatoes and fresh vegetables. What a spread! The beef was tender and the whole meal was faultless. The young, well trained mainly female staff were attentive but not overbearing and friendly at the same time. Desserts were equally delicious as were the homemade petit fours with honeycombe which accompanied the coffee. Simon and his wife, the managers, came over to see if all was well and we were more than satisfied with the value for money at around £20 per head including drinks. We reluctantly left after a memorable morning acknowledging Paul Nicholls's at his lunch table as we passed and managing to stroke the Aintree Trophy! All in all a perfect lunch and this pub joins our list of South Somerset favorites along with the Three Horseshoes, Batcombe, Kings Arms, Charlton Horethorne and Masons Arms, Lower Odcombe. Somerset is brilliant for pubs! Thanks, Manor Inn. See you for the Gold Cup!!
