Fantastic price for a spontaneous treat on our mid week day off. Lovely cosy welcoming venue in Axbridge Square. Arrived early eve and welcomed to our room by Mark.Our room had a rustic charm but all the nice luxuries and comfiness which added to our treat.
We headed down to the bar for drinks and tapas. The Oak House serves an enormous range of gins many of which are local..and beautifully presented by Mark. I opted for the rhubarb and ginger which looked amazing..see photo!! I have seen gin n tonic look so appealing!! Very welcome after a long day! My partner opted for the 'Old Barn', a popular local ale.We shared some mouthwatering tapas in the bar as it was late evening, although we could have opted for a meal in the restaurant ( the menu will give us an excuse for a return trip!).
We enjoyed a lovely breakfast from the extensive choice, and were very well looked after by Faye who was bubbly and personable. As well as a cooked breakfast (I opted for scrambled eggs and smoked salmon!), there is a also a 'help yourself' table of fresh crusty bread delicious fruits and yoghurts,pastries and juices which were all displayed so appetisingly. The restaurant is such a great room...so much character and perfectly lit to make it cosy. I could have happily sat there for the morning with my coffee pot and a paper!
Thank you Mark for making us so welcome and being such an expert in the gin bar! We are already planning our return trip!
Would highly reccomend The Oak House.
