The food was excellent. We ate on St Patrick's night when they had a special menu, however, the general menu also looked very good and came complete with details of all different ingrediants to make it easy for any allergy sufferers. Would certainly go there...More

We decided to try the bakehouse as we had eaten there a while ago and we often use the adjoining Brewers Arms. The restaurant was nicely decked out for the occasion and we were shown to our table and it all looked very good. It...More

The specials look like someone with some culinary ability has been involved. The traditional pub grub appears to be left to the work experience. While the staff are attentive, the woman in charge has all the warmth and hospitality of a prison warden. Portions are...More

This is the part where visitors can enjoy a more formal, sit-down dining experience. Sourced from the same kitchens as the Brewers Arms the food is excellent and is an excellent choice if you have longer to savour the food. Strongly recommended.

Have eaten here twice in the last month. On both occasions staff were rushed and kept forgetting things, for example drinks, side orders. Also arriving at 7.30pm and food arriving an hour and a quarter later is too long to wait. Can't believe that this...More

We had planned just to have a bar snack but at 6pm the bar was already full as there was football on. We were therefore offered a table in the restaurant. This is simple but nicely decorated and set out, very warm with a fire...More

Centrally located in the very pleasant village of South Petherton, this restaurant is fairly local to us. We have eaten here a few times and, except for one occasion, have found it excellent in terms of value, food and service. Under shared ownership with the...More
