“A Somerset treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

I've just come back from a weekend staying at the Devonshire Arms. The whole experience was delightful. I arrived late, hot and slightly bothered, on Friday evening from London to a very warm, no hassle, friendly welcome from everyone I spoke to, at what must have been the busiest time of the night. My room which was in the courtyard building was lovely and cool, tastefully decorated and immaculate. A nice touch also to have a complimentary bottle of water which was replenished the following day. If you wanted a quiet early night, which I didn't , I would stay in the main building as the courtyard rooms are exactly that and quite rightly on a nice warm evening people are outside talking until late. Cooked breakfast was delicious and the brown toast evenly crisp and beautifully nutty - both attributes sadly all too often missing in hostelries these days. At the Devonshire, Phil and his team are very obliging - nothing was too much trouble, including the miscellany of storing a bicycle to providing an iron and ironing board. Very relaxed, but efficient and I'd recommend it to anyone to stay. Oh, and the Malbec was very good too!

The owners have beautifully converted the adjacent building (years ago it was a very active skittle alley) into a private dining area seating up to 14.
You can order from the standard menu and, if there are more than 8 in the party it doesn't cost anything extra! There is a £50 charge for 8 or less.
The decor and ambience is suited for a special celebration in private. There is currently
One long dining table seating 14 easily with ample room for glassware and table dressing.

Although I have yet to dine in this room I am certainly having my next birthday party there!

This pub/restaurant has many positive attributes - tasteful internal décor, nice staff and good quality food. The down side is that the portions are extremely small and the prices are above average. I had a sandwich at lunchtime - two small slices of bread and a not very generous filling. Well-presented but would only keep a mouse going for a few hours. The choice for vegetarians is also a bit poor.

Booked a medium sized double room, not massive but the quality of the décor was excellent. Lovely comfy bed and really high quality bed linen. Had a lovely dinner with friends, pricey but very good. Would stay here again.

We stayed in one of the best rooms in the hotel – certainly a better (and larger) room than on a previous trip. Facilities were excellent and the hosts welcoming. We had a nice ‘sea view’ from the bedroom window (the floods hit the area pretty hard and many fields were underwater but it didn’t affect our stay).

As ever, the food was top notch: we had steak and it’s always a worry when the restaurant does not provide steak knives. Fortunately, when the meat was as good as they served, you don’t actually need them. Great duck and a nice cheese board.

We decided to go for dinner, having not been for a couple of years as the weather had put a lot of people off going out we thought we like to support a pub not far away.
We hadn't booked but was offered different tables in the restaurant and the menus. We had our drinks order taken and waited for our food order, unfortunately it did take a while and we weren't sure why as there was only 3 other tables in the restaurant. I ordered the duck and my husband went for the steak, no starters. The food took 50minutes to arrive, we were then starving, there had been no apology for the wait and we had asked twice when would the food come. The food was taster and my husbands chips were delicious. We were asked if we wanted dessert, we said we look at the menus but then again after another 15mniutes before we saw a waiter again we decided just to ask for the bill and leave. We have only one course in the 1.5hours we were there a real disappointment but what we had was lovely. Maybe they need more staff or the kitchen was short staffed we just don't know

We spent last weekend here with the whole family, covering three generations, and everyone had such a fabulous time. Such a welcoming and accommodating couple who run this pub along with a lovely team of staff. Gorgeous, comfortable bedrooms. Really delicious food both evenings followed by drinks by the log fire, so relaxing. We will definitely return here, perhaps en route to Cornwall next time.
