About The Bower Inn

The Bower Inn is a very attractive 18th century building set in a picturesque cottage garden on the edge of the Somerset Levels with easy access to the M5 Motorway Juction 23, offering a quality Country Pub, Hotel and Restaurant .

The Bower was closed in summer 2008 and stayed that way until Peter and Candida, its current owners, purchased and renovated it in 2010. After a complete re-fit we re-opened in summer 2010. Initially just the restaurant and bar, followed in late autumn with 5 quality en-suite bedrooms.

Since August 2010 the business has grown significantly and includes frequent functions, weddings and celebrations of all types. We now have 16 bedrooms with a mixture of antique and modern furnishings. All are wonderfully comfortable and welcoming with Hypnos mattresses, Matki rain showers, cosy dressing gowns and hospitality trays. We hope you enjoy our unique and personal style.

In our restaurnat we create menus that let the quality of our local produce shine through - we only use free range meat and our busy bees and neighbours hens work hard to make us honey and eggs.

All our en-suite rooms are warm, inviting and individual. Almost all of our bedrooms have deluxe king size or large single with duck feather duvets and pillows (synthetic bedding available by request) and hypnos mattresses . Our theme is warmth and a sense of welcome, we want you to throw off your shoes, put your feet up and relax!


We visited this country pub for lunch and to catch up with a friend. Despite living within a few miles we had never visited the pub before and did so on a family recommendation. We were not disappointed. Whilst being down a country lane it is well signposted. It has quite an extensive menu with 'Specials' and provides service which is friendly to humans and dogs. Two of us opted for chilli which was one of the 'Specials' that day. It was nice to have 'proper' chunks of beef rather than the usual mince. It was beautifully presented with individual pots of nachos and a dip and a 'dome' of rice rather than the usual 'bed.' Our friend had 'traditional' fish and chips.' There was also plenty of pudding choice. My pannacotta was yummy. This was a mid week visit and the pub was fairly quiet. Service was leisurely which suited us as we were having a 'catch up' with a friend. Try it if you're happy to take your time to enjoy a good meal in the country.

We found this place on Trip advisor and decided to give it a go. We did have trouble finding it as the satnav took us into the middle of a nearby housing estate. However our perseverance was well rewarded. The staff were welcoming. The food was very good and nicely presented, The Goats Cheese starter was exceptional and the puddings a little mundane but overall the evening was very enjoyable. I will visit again when next in the area.
