This place has recently changed hands and now serves very good, imaginative food. 4 of us went and we all enjoyed our meals.

My dad loved...

Went for dinner here and was pleasantly surprised, don't be put off by the slightly aging decour. They have a really good home cooked menu. I had the short ribs and they were delicious and everyone in my party enjoyed their meal. Manager told me they will be having a refit soon so it should be really popular this summer

Popped in to use the bar for a swift pint while Chinese was being prepared from local takeaway. Never again. Whole bar area was old and tired and didn't look like anyone had cleaned it for a while. The kind of establishment where you wipe your feet on the way out.

Following a poor experience at the London Inn, we ended up in the West Somerset. What a contrast, warm friendly welcome, helpful staff and a lovely Sunday lunch. Yes a bit rough round the edges but when the food is good and the welcome is excellent, who cares!! Good food good value - thank you.

The batter (for our fish) had just been made and was brilliant (can you call batter brilliant?) Well we thoroughly enjoyed it so went back for the Thursday carvery and we were not disappointed. We...
