We booked, last minute, and set off from home 2 hrs later. We arrived at the Inn just after dinner time and received a very warm welcome from the landlord, and his African Grey parrot. We were shown to our, spotless, room upstairs and were left to settle in. Everything was to hand and after sorting our stuff we went... More

I stayed here back in April for work. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly, rooms were clean and had a nice view looking over the canal. The food was basic but very good, which is perfect for me. I'd definitely recommend.

Was a wonderful day as the venue, staff & food were superb. Very friendly place with a good selection of food & drinks. Room for reception was good size even when disco was set up. Very scenic area with good access to M5 & Bridgwater area. Delighted.
