We stayed her with our children. We had an interconnecting room. The staff could not have been more accommodating dealing with my very complex dietary requirements. Rooms are done up to a high standard. Very convenient for the M5

Went to the Bower Inn for a meal with friends. I cannot fault the service or the food. The staff are excellent, friendly and attentive. Our only complaint and it is quite an important one, is the seating for drinks. I don't think the owners can ever have sat on the sofas and chairs in the bar area, they should... More

The owners, Peter and Candy knew what they wanted to achieve when they took over the rather tired premises some years ago and the subsequent high level of room occupancy and full restaurant are a testimony to their continued success. Good food comes from fresh ingredients well prepared and cooked to a high standard and the owners ensure that standards... More

After our Golden Wedding Anniversary 'event' on the Saturday, we had a family lunch at the Bower Inn on the Sunday. My son and daughter-in law and their two sons, and my daughter and son-in-law had all been staying at the Bower for the previous couple of days, and they were very happy with their accommodation, so the excellent lunch...

I visited The Bower Inn with my wife and my parents for lunch and we were not disappointed. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the décor inside the pub is light and inviting with a large dining area. Service was quick and hassle free and the food was truly fantastic, tasty and well presented. I can highly recommend the... More

We have been going to the Bower Inn on and off for some time. The food is good, interesting and well presented but last night was let down by indifferent staff. Part way through our starters unordered coffee arrived. We politely said it was not for us, there was no apology and we were given the impression that WE had... More

On the rare occasion I deal with negative reviews it is frustrating to realise that a heart felt apology (or maybe 2 in this example) is all that was needed to improve the experience and prevent our guest having a negative view of us. That said, constructive feed back such as this is a great tool for us to use... More

Really enjoyed the Sunday lunch. The Restaurant wasn't full but there was a good atmosphere and in the past I have found it noisy when it has been full. Good service throughout the meal. We all had three courses and could find no faults. Flo had the fish cakes and she said they were really good but very different to... More

Thanks for the review. Our homemade fish cakes come with cheese in them, on a bed creamed leeks and tomato dressing, pesto, toasted almonds and new potatoes. Not "the run of the mill", but a tasty and light dish. Hope to see you again. Peter More
