Excellent food at this lovely country inn. The garden is lovely with mature plants and trees. Very dog friendly where dogs are made really welcome. I would fully recommend it. A word of caution this is a genuine country pub where the theme is hunting, shooting and fishing. Also there is some parking outside the inn, but a small carpark...

Stayed at this charming little place with three of my friends recently for a wedding. We booked two twin rooms, both of which were very well decorated, clean, spacious and extremely comfortable beds. Staff were incredibly helpful and attentive. Breakfast was delicious. Overall a lovely experience. Highly recommended.

Recently returned from this idyllic country get-away. Stayed in the Stag Lodge which exceeded all expectations with its own sitting room, log burner (plenty of logs!!), wifi connection and a lovely spa bath to relax in after exploring the stunning Quantock Hills.

We were travelling with our dog and chose this pub due to their dog friendly policy and have to compliment their approach to pets - they were excellent and made us all feel very welcome. Lovely beer garden and...

After a nice walk on the quantocks we booked a table at this local pub and found a gem. It is not very often that you can find good food and good friendly service in one establishment nowadays. From the moment we walked in we were greeted and shown to our table by friendly staff who obviously enjoyed working there....

We have eaten in the restaurant several times over the years but as we have two dogs are always on the look out for dog friendly places which the bar area is. Booked Sunday Lunch and found the food good although the beef could have been a little less chewy. Our dogs were made welcome although they are still a...
