This is a large and busy pub with restaurant, the deep fried brie starter was not great too much frying fat, I had a nice special fillet on potato but the flavours were overpowered with course grain pepper, the veg side dish was not inspiring, beer was good and wine not too bad the others had steak which was good.

Well worth popping into for lunch. They serve the traditional pub grub but also have a great range of specials! Staff are very good and clearly try to go that extra mile.

What a excellent place this is. We found The Poplars purely by chance on our way to Frome, thought it looked pretty good so went in for lunch.

It was more than good, it was excellent. Although a long menu (plus specials) tends to sound alarm bells (or maybe micorwave chimes) this was certainly not the case here. Mrs M and I chose different items from the specials board, both were really good - interesting combinations, well good and nicely presented. The Wadworth 6X was on great form too.

We've since been back twice, each time introducing family and friends to the pub. Everyone has been very impressed, not only by the food but also by the warm and friendly environment created by the family and staff who run the pub.

In my book, this is absolutely everything a proper country pub should be, and nothing it shouldn't. Can't wait for summer and the chance to sit outside watching the cricket.

we went to the Poplars for a celebratory meal ( my son's birthday) and every aspect of the evening was excellent.
The staff were friendly and efficient and the meal itself was chosen from a full and varied menu and it was cooked to perfection.
We will definitely be back !

Once again another fabulous new year evening. The menu choices were excellent, the food was great and the service was on this occasion a little slow. You do need to remember though the place was full and everyone sitting down together is no mean treat. This will not be our last trip to the poplars by any means, we have never been disappointed by our food in all the years we have eaten there.
