Booked in here for the mother's day lunch and it really was a treat! Starting off with the incredible setting: a beautiful country house in the middle of the country side. We were shown to a lovely room, and had an incredible carvery, followed by a trio of desserts. The food was delicious. Loads of choice of meat and vegetables,...

We had a fantastic day here with an outside wedding in the hot sun in April. This is a lovely venue and generally the service and food is excellent. The only downside if you stay overnight is that they are very slow replenishing the Breakfast trays so may have to wait 15 minutes for more bacon, sausages etc when they...

Fabulous Christmas lunch @ Dillington House! Up the long drive and the first peep of the historic house, to the hall and the crackling of a wonderful log fire, cosy sofas and immense Christmas tree. Lunch itself in the beautiful dining room overlooking the perfect croquet lawn was delicious with good-sized portions and delightful staff looking after us. Well worth...

The clay pigeon shooting was great. Really good fun and Chris was just fantastic. Really helped to make the 30th birthday celebrations fun We had great weather which really helped, don't think it would have been as good if it was bad weather

We enjoyed a lovely family meal for 20 people in the pleasant surroundings of the library. The food was excellent and the waiting staff attentive. We had the reception lounge and bar largely to ourselves both before and after the meal which was great. We stayed overnight in the modern annex which was comfortable although rather hot so we didn't...

A wonderful festive experience coming to Dillington house for a Christmas meal with all the family. The food was delicious with generous portions and the staff were very helpful and accommodating, especially with two young children as part of our group. We look forward to returning to Dillington soon.

We stayed here recently as part of a wedding party. We were disapointed with the room. Over priced for what I would say you get better standards at a travelodge. The drain cover was full of hair in the bathroom/wet room. The bin had not been emptied from the previous guests, for £125 per a night l I was disappointed...

I recently enjoyed a very fine group Christmas Luncheon at Dillington House where service was discreet and efficient and the food could not be faulted. Having dined at many highly-rated overseas venues I now feel proud that in Somerset we can match the best. The atmosphere was not the superficial glitz of a "look at me" venue, but satisfyingly restrained...
