“good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

The room and facilities are of a very good standard, easy free parking.
the staff mostly young people were very helpful and attentive
the food I have to say not brilliant but having said that it is still usual pub standard for the price you know what to expect.
all in all we found it to be value for the money and would/will return.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

This pub is a convenient place to stay when visiting Street on business, there are a variety of rooms both in the main building and two separate buildings - I would go for the separate buildings to get a quieter room as some are directly above the bar. The bar area itself has been refurbished lately and looks very nice and modern, gastro pub type style. I am not sure if the rooms have been refurbished - the one I stayed in most recently still looked quite dated, although it was clean and tidy and nothing wrong with it. Probably worth asking when you book if you can stay in a refurbished room (assuming any have been). The TVs are quite small, but I didn't really use them. I found the check in / check out to be convenient, there is a hotel reception desk which seems to be manned whilst the pub is open, so arriving late at night was no problem. Ate in the restaurant one night and the food was decent for pub food, nothing special. Breakfast also fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the buildings separate from the pub, and ask if any have been refurbished.

Good Afternoon,

Unfortunately our rooms were not refurbished along with the pub but are still in very good condition. The rooms within the cottages can be quieter and tend to be the preferred location for many of our guests.
If requested, we shall always do our very best to site you in one of these rooms upon your next visit
I am glad to hear you found the inn convenient for business purposes and very much hope to you again soon.

Thank you very much,

Jo

Stayed one night to visit wildlife reserves on Somerset Levels. The pub is well placed for this (just minutes drive to the western access to Ham Wall RSPB); it's also opposite Clark's Village and on the high street in Street.

We stayed in an attractive room in a separate block of "cottages" next to the pub. The pub is pleasant enough with a range of reasonably priced food and a selection of well-kept real ales. (There's not much pub and restaurant choice in Street). Breakfast was somewhat minimalist and the coffee was like dish water (they did replace it with a slightly better attempt when we complained); but service was good throughout our stay.

Overall good value and worth a stay if location suits.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the "cottage" block may be a bit quieter, though noise didn't sem...

The pros: great location (opposite the shopping village), plenty of car parking, spacious and comfortable room (room 11), great value for money. We didn't feel rushed during the evening meal, even when we were almost the last to leave.
The cons: TV in room didn't work (poor reception), not reported as this didn't bother us.
The evening meals were very variable - some were delicious, others not so. Breakfast was OK.
We would stay again, because of the value for money.

Had a lovely bank holiday weekend stay, we stayed in rose cottage which was spacious for the three of us.

The pub was good value and the staff were great.

Plentiful breakfast and couldn't fault the team.

Arrived on good friday and were told we were over the road in the Blossom Cottage. They couldnt find the keys so while we waited we were given a complimentary drink for the 3 of us. The room was spacious and had a seperate bedroom. You are able to put the heating on if required as each room has a seperate boiler. The bed and the sofa bed were comfortable and the rooms and the bathroom were clean. Being next to the clarks village outlet was a bonus. We would go again as the staff were pleasant and very polite. The bar and food were good and well cooked. The cooked breakfast was plentiful with cereal and full english available

Room Tip: Blossom cottage is away from the Inn so the noise is reduced

Very good location and very good value for the price paid, we were on the top floor which helped keep out the noise from the bar on a very busy Saturday night, very good atmosphere & the staff were very helpful. The only things that we weren't happy about was the water/power in the bathroom, we had to flush the toilet at least 3 times each time & the shower although very hot was not at all powerful, also at breakfast the cafetiere coffee was horrible & when we told the staff all they had to say was "thanks we may consider putting an extra spoon of coffee in from now on" the last thing was the repeating fire alarms which we understand they couldn't do anything about but it would have been nice for someone to explain what was going on when we sat down fro breakfast. Other than this we would happily go back.
