Found this lovely pub by accident last Saturday. It was a great spot to stop by for lunch and a break from a long road trip. It's a pity we had to leave as would happily have sat there all afternoon .

The Five Dials in Horton serves excellent food, much of which is sourced locally, a varied menu and is a popular, friendly pub. They also offer accommodation and, although I haven't stayed myself as I live in the area, I have heard very positive feedback from people who have.

We stopped here having seen it on tripadvisor. A simple lunch of sandwiches, coffee and a good pint of Otter (£3.00). Couldn't have been nicer. A very Warm welcome and I thoroughly recommend it. A Simple, tasty lunch of good food. The home made onion chutney was delicious.

We travelled up from Sidmouth, Devon (mid-week), to Horton Cross, Somerset to visit some friends who mentioned we should have supper at the 5 Dials before we drove back. Well, what a find!

My wife and I ate at The Five Dials Inn on Wednesday evening 8th June. We had been recommended to this pub by the owners of our B&B. Unassuming from the outside, the interior of this local village pub is clean, bright and welcoming. When we arrived at about 6.45pm, the place was fairly quiet, but quickly filled up within... More
