We have visited the Oak House on several occasions, for Sunday lunch which is superb and informal lunch. The decoration is fitting for the building and during summer outside tables are available in the square where you can watch the world go by. The menus are well thought out and dishes are presented with care. There is also a very... More

We visited here in the post Christmas/pre New Year period whilst staying in nearby Winscombe. The restaurant was quiet with only one other table booked, but despite that we had an extremely enjoyable evening. We went straight to our table due to one of our party having a sprained ankle and wanting to be seated immediately, but there looked to... More

A warm welcome, open fire, excellent food in an historic setting- this place is fits well in the ancient market square.

We visited this restauarant on a Tripadvisor 'tasting menu' deal. There had been a mix up with the booking (not I don't believe on our part) and some of the courses we ought to have had were therefore substituted. In the case of the soup it was very tasty, and the duck was nice enough, but on the whole the... More

I stumbled across this place by chance whilst driving to visit family in Axbridge. It was so good I took my family back just days later. The food is outstanding, the staff most attentive and the bar has a great atmosphere. I would and will happily recommend this place to friends and colleagues. I just wish I could unearth the...

Soooo good! We had a lovely meal - restaurant as it should be. Hake with gnocchi was spot on - creamy sauce and greens went well with the fish. Friends' steaks were great too. Excellent service, lovely food. Will be back!!

No vegetarian option available on our menu sheet but chef said he could make a risotto . It was the most stodgy rice mass that I could cut with a knife. Complained to waitress who said she would tell chef but "chef" didn't respond. They do a mean steak but if your a vegetarian I'd choose somewhere else to eat.

Dear June0111, Thank you very much for your feedback. We were most concerned to read the issues raised in your review, as you gave us 5* for food and service previously, last January. I believe the reasons for your concerns were down to the menu sheet presented to you, as it was in fact our 5 course Tasting Menu; it... More

Visited The Oakhouse on a busy Friday night including few Xmas parties going on around. The service was quick, helpful and professional. The food was amazing. Starters and mains including fish and 2 filets - cooked to perfection. One of the best steaks I've ever had! Well done to chefs and all front of house team! Will definitely visit again!

Fantastic food, 5 star. Service was very good. It was a bit pricy, but worth it. Would recommend to all.
