“delicious food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Great little local pub, with a lovely friendly feel. The food is fresh and every dish our party of 8 had was cooked to perfection. Huge portion sizes, even from the bar menu, and excellent value for money. Will definitely return when back in the area.

“Continues to be a great place to eat!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We visit the area annually for a week in June and remembered great meals at The Valiant Soldier: I'm pleased to report that it continues to offer a warm welcome & excellent choice of well cooked meals.
By chance on one of the evenings we visited it was 'Locals Steak Night', but despite all tables being reserved, the Landlord made every effort to find us a space.
On the following night we reserved a table to share with friends and once again we had a super meal.
Well worth visiting - we look forward to 2015!

“Nice friendly village pub.”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Had lunch here today on the way back from walking at Tarr Steps.
Nice starters of calamari and brie followed by kidneys in a wholegrain mustard sauce and a lasagne. Everything well cooked and tasty washed down with some refreshing ciders. Good service and friendly chatty locals in a homely atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

“Great food, friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Never had a bad meal at The Valiant. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff, food always well presented and good value for money. A good selection of vegetarian food too. Everything is quickly prepared and piping hot. When staying in West Somerset don't miss a meal at this pub.
