We often visit The Bower Inn for meals with family and friends and it's always a fail-safe to have a lovely evening. The food is delicious and well presented. Menu is varied, something for most people. Lovely atmosphere, particularly in the main restaurant next to the fire. Last and certainly not least is the service, always a friendly face to...

The staff done a great job, there were about 100 people attending, no waiting about to be served, all the food was very hot, the music was loud and great....Loved the pea shooters and balls all night. Fantastic and the price was...

I stayed here for a week in October 2016 while attending a course at the local college. The staff were fantastic and even helped with some problems i had upon arrival (non hotel related). Food was great both breakfast and evening meal. Plenty of choice. Room was comfy and everything was replenished on a daily basis - even the jar...

I recently visited on a Sunday for a roast dinner and then my son and I also stayed the night. From the moment I arrived I was very well looked after. I enjoyed a delicious roast dinner and pudding to follow. Staff couldn't have been more helpful offering to come to the car to help me take baby stuff up...

We have recently returned from a 2 night stay at the Bower Inn, and cannot recommend this Hotel enough. We arrived late night on a Friday night after a long journey and the Staff still prepared food for us with no quibbles. Our room (number 17) was excellent. We did have a problem with the hot water in the bath,...

An enjoyable evening but the food was truly awful. I think even the manageress was embarrassed although that didn't stop her coming round at the end of the night and press ganging our friends to pay for someone who left a deposit but was too unwell to turn up. If it had been up to me she wouldn't have got...

I am really sorry you were so disappointed with the food offering on New Year's Eve. I have always found that food feedback can be subjective. Certainly I enjoyed the lasagne (as did others) and I believe one of your guests took a second helping of the beef cobbler. That said your remarks are duly noted and will be remembered...

The Bower Inn had been our choice to spend New Year's with Freinds whom had come from all over the country. We were shown to a paper covered table very small to seat our guests when we were finally served by young lady's not dressed for service. We were given a coffee cup with no saucer full of thick green...

We are all really sorry that you were so disappointed with your New Year's Eve at The Bower Inn. This was our 7th consecutive party and they have changed very little during that time. New Year's Eve here is a "one off" relaxed fun event for all in the building - including our hard working team. I don't think you...

Superb service and well priced but still quality food - there was an evening wedding reception happening but this didn't effect the service as they were dealt with in a separate part of the hotel I would recommend booking

Glad your stay went well. yes, we do wedding receptions all year round - using our marquee during summer months. We work hard to ensure that non wedding guests still have a perfect experience. Thanks for the review. Peter

We had a big family get together at the Bower Inn and they looked after us really well. Good food and beer at reasonable prices and very helpful and friendly staff. Really well organised when serving the food and clearing away. They fed 40 of us in their lovely Garden Room without a hitch. Would definitely recommend for any occasion.

We decided to go out for Christmas Dinner and after searching for a suitable place, open on Christmas day, booked into the Bower Inn. The cost was £70 per head, but we knew dining out on Christmas day would be more pricey, and other venues we looked at cost even more, so this didn't worry us. The menu and options...
