“LOVELY PLACE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

We stayed in Room 3 which was lovely. The decor is modern and the facilities fairly new. The welcome on arrival was warm and courteous and the service that we experienced was the same until we checked out, when we were not asked if we enjoyed our stay or invited to come back, which seemed rather odd.

The only niggles were:

1. Very strange unexplained smell in the landing that permeated through to the bedroom
2. The hardness of the bed. One night was OK, but the second night was hell, a third would have been impossible as we barely slept the second night (unless of course you like very, very firm mattresses).
3. The point above about the leaving experience.

Would we return - only if they have much softer mattresses.
Eating - we only had ice cream and sorbet in the evening which were delicious.

Room Tip: If you like your window open the rooms that face the road are over the front garden where people sit...

We ate here - so could only assume that the rooms are good.

Sunday Roast is easy to get right but this one dissapointed. Gristly lamb and yucky 'chemical' gravy. Yorkshire pud soggy. Vegetables well cooked though. Rather a grim experience for the price charged.

I stayed here for 2 nights recently as a random last minute mini break on my own...what a lovely old English pub! The pub itself has such character, and is actually quite big once you get inside; with a great mix of locals and people visiting from further afield.

I only tried the bar snacks which were all really generous portions, and a pretty wide choice; but the main menu sounded good too!

The room I stayed in (room 6) was lovely, decorated to a really high standard with a lovely big comfy bed and a spacious, quality bathroom. The refreshment tray in the room was just right – proper coffee to go into a proper cafetiere, plus a wide selection of teas and a little pack of biscuits which always goes down well!

All the bar staff were really helpful and friendly, there's plenty of parking, and the location is great for exploring the nearby area.

All in all a great example of a real country pub. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 6, which is opposite the door down to the reception...so if you get bothered byt pe...

We've just returned from a 3-night stay at the Carpenters Arms - we happened across it when looking for somewhere to eat in the area when we were holidaying in Bath and were so impressed that we've been back twice since to stay. It's an enchanting, relaxed and quaint pub with log fires in the winter, flowers around the garden sitting area in the summer and is in a pretty location overlooking countryside. Bath and Bristol are both around 8/10 miles away and attractions such as Cheddar Gorge are within easy travelling distance. The rooms are clean and well equipped with tea and coffee making trays and fresh milk is provided in thermos flasks. The room we had on our first stay didn't have an over-bath shower but the room we stayed in this time did so you might want to request this if it's important to you. Toiletries are provided. Some rooms also have better views than others. The staff are friendly and efficient but where this pub really excels is the food. It's easily good restaurant standard and the dinner, bed and breakfast option includes all the usual full breakfast choices plus a 3-course evening meal with breads and olives also available while you're choosing from the menu. Sunday lunch is delicious with locally sourced meats and generous portions and we've enjoyed everything we've eaten there. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the pub overlook the front garden and road (fairly quiet) but have a nice view...

We stayed here with all of out friends whilst attending a wedding down the road. The rooms were really nice, clean and spacious, and it the place is deceivingly large.

The pub was very cosy and the breakfast was spot on. We came in late (around 2am) from the wedding and it was no problem getting in.

Overall, a really quiet and cosy little place if you happen to be in the area.
