Normally a big fan of the Bowl but to served cold soup only to be given exactly same plate reheated with nibbled bread ! is not good etiquette. Then manager to busy to discuss suggests standards may have slipped since last visit .................

We stayed as a family for 2 nights - Celia and the team were very pleasant and welcoming, and had an enjoyable stay. Food service runs until 9.30 which is good for guests arriving late, and there were no complaints about any of the food. Breakfast the first morning was a little hit and miss, as we had some items...

Stayed here one night. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our room was excellent and the church bells were a added bonus. Food was excellent and reasonable priced. Staff were pleasant and woke up relaxed. Lovely stay.

I went here with the family tonight on the way home from Weston Super Mare. My wife had looked at this place on this site and it appeared to have some good reviews so we thought we would stop by ourselves. The pub is situated in Lower Almondsbury just round the corner from the school and up a narrow lane...

Lovely village with pub next to the church. No car park but pub has free car parking available just across the road. Traditional style rooms, apparently each one individually decorated. Food was decent pub food and staff were friendly. Cooked breakfast was obviously pre-cooked as it appeared only a couple of minutes after ordering and consequently some items such as...

We enjoyed a brief stay at the Bowl Inn, in the charming village f Almondsbury. From our arrival we were made to feel most welcome. Our room was perfect as was our nights sleep. The bathroom facilities were a little on the small side but you can't have everything. We dined at the Bowl Inn on the Saturday evening and...

A beautiful setting only a couple of miles from the M4, M5 junction. I suspect with a sat nav you find it quickly, however relying on road signs and at the end of a 7 hour drive, I had trouble finding it. Main reason is that it is actually in Lower Almondsbury. The bar was great, proper pub with at...

Called in to have an early evening meal on the way back from a great day out at Tyntesfield. The beer and food re excellent and the service first class as we sat out on the lovely patio at the rear in the sunshine. A perfect end to a perfect day. Thanks
