Visiting family and this is their local pub. I have met the landlords before and as every very friendly and welcoming. People eating in the bar area and restaurant. We did not eat but the food smelt and looked good. My partner highly recommends the Exmoor Stag and Amber Otter from the barrel; saying they were superb. Busy so would suggest booking a table if eating.

Went back to this place after having a good experience last year. Although it was cold the waitress lit the log fire us. Very pleasant. The food was very tasty and served without too much waiting. A lovely place to eat with al ale served from barrels behind the bar. Wish we had more places like this up in Merseyside.

We have returned to this pub time and time again. Each time we are made to feel very welcome. The delicious food and atmosphere of this very old long house makes it a must to visit. It may well be advised to book a table ahead of your visit. In the summer they have many outdoor tables at which you can soak up the beautiful rural surroundings whilst eating or having a pint...

Visited a few days ago as part of a party of 6. Busy yet the food quality was very good and the service on the button. Expect to pay around £20+ for a starter and main course.
My kidney starter was great and my gammon main course sizeable and well presented.
Quite a wide choice however "chips" appear far too often.

Checked out the Cotley Inn on TripAdvisor and it looked good. Quite honestly, Chard is not exactly overburdened with good pubs and restaurants and we were looking for somewhere to take my 92 year old mother for a meal.
Luckily we booked, because on a Saturday night, the place was packed.
I think it is worth pointing out that the Cotley is a pub rather than a restaurant and the food is pub grub. But it is very good pub grub and priced accordingly. The menu was varied and contained all the usual suspects, but there was also a good range of specials, two of which we had and both of which were delicious.
The staff were unfailingly helpful and polite, the food arrived at the table piping hot and without a long wait. What more needs to be said?
On the map it looks a little tricky to get to, but it isn't really, and only ten minutes from the centre of Chard, I'm not surprised it is so popular.
