I must admit that turning up to my daughter's hen weekend on a wet Friday afternoon in July I had some reservations about the choice of venue - but what a lovely weekend it turned out to be be! Peta and her staff made us so welcome, opening up a room in the inn for our Friday evening meal which should have been a BBQ and our beauty treatments made us all feel much better despite the weather. I'd never slept in a yurt before (but am a veteran camper) and I had a good night's sleep. The yurts were warm and cosy and had everything we needed. The cooked breakfast in the inn was beautiful and set us up for our day out in Bath. Fortunately the rain stopped so we were able to sit and eat outdoors on the Saturday evening - our chocolate orange cakes on the embers were delicious. Thanks to Peta and the team for a wonderful weekend which we'll remember for a long time.

I proposed to my wife in the restaurant 22 years ago, so it would be nice to have our 20th wedding anniversary meal there. We both ordered the chicken breast with stuffing and veal gravy (£14 each). The food was fantastic but the plates were the size of a dustbin lids and the food was a tiny pile of chicken stacked up in the middle with a bit of stuffing and a spoonful of gravy dribbled around it. The side dish (£3.50 extra) was half a dozen florets of broccoli, that was it. My wife and I left disappointed, stopped off at local chippy to fill up on cheesy chips. Poor all round.

Staying in "Daisy" the Yurt was a fantastic experience. It (she) is placed in a fantastic position up on the hill just behind the lovely Vobster Inn. The accommodation is incredibly well equipped and for the £80 price tag you get given wood for the day/night, toiletries, towels and breakfast. The owner was very helpful and friendly and I thoroughly recommend a stay.

We had a wonderful time staying in the newly acquired yurts. Beautifully decorated and very cosy with everything you'd need taken care of.

Our weekend was a rather wet one with our planned BBQ being called off and having food in the restaurant of the Vobster Inn instead.
Our host and landlady Peta, was exceptional!
We had an area of the restaurant to ourselves and were looked after impeccably.
Breakfast the following two days the same level of service followed through! The weekend went without a hitch and made for an amazing weekend making lots of memories!
We can't thank you enough for your hospitality.

The yurts are wonderfully positioned, with views all round. Sitting out on an evening when the rain gave way, the stars shone. A beautiful setting!
Thank you again! Will certainly recommend the Vobster Inn.

Your food was scrummie too!

I have been to this place many times over many years but not for some time. An impromptu gathering for dinner. The menu was limited in size but appeared to cater for all tastes. The food was superb; this is not Pub-Grub, this is restaurant cuisine. Nicely presented and delicious. OK, I am a beer fan and so having a fantastic pint of Butcombe bitter always beats a wine imo. Staff are friendly and efficient. It is a pub so good drinking, beer kept well and snacks available. There is accommodation and even yurts which seem to be very popular. You are in the middle of the Somerset countryside - it is Vobster.

Room Tip: try a yurt?
