Our restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner, with all dishes made to order using local fresh ingredients delivered daily, all served alongside some great local beers and ciders to match. All our rooms are warm and inviting and include a mix of Twin and Double rooms, some of which with stand-alone bathtubs, and all come with matki rain showers.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.


First visit with my husband today for Sunday Lunch and it certainly will not be our last. Received a very warm welcome from the staff. The restaurant is beautiful and tastefully decorated. We both had the roast beef which was to die for with amazing vegetables and excellent value for money. Really did not need a dessert but we both had one! White chocolate and raspberry cheesecake for me and creme brûlée for my husband. The desserts were just gorgeous. Thank you Bower inn for a lovely first experience at your excellent restaurant. We will be back!


Visited here for the first time last week -such a pretty pub. Very nice decor inside and a lovely space outside with tables to sit and soak up the sun. The service was excellent, the staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing, great menu with a varied range - not your normal pub food, really enjoyed this meal. Will definitely be visiting here on a more regular basis.


Stayed here recently to celebrate my birthday and can honestly say that it was fantastic. We booked into the bridal suite which was sumptuous. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bath in the corner of the room was divine, even the shower was lovely and powerful which you don't often find. I would definitely stay here again (we even tried to book in for a second night but the place was fully booked all week. I can see why). As for the food – we ate in the restaurant in the evening and again for breakfast the next morning and oh my word. The food was amazing. Whoever the chef is they clearly know their stuff. We'll definitely be back guys.

Having researched places to stay overnight on journey from Birmingham to Fowey, I found the excellent Bower Inn. We had a warm welcome on a cold wet night and were glad that we had prebooked dinner as the restaurant was extremely busy. Our room was well appointed and bed comfy.  Bar and restaurant service were very good with friendly and professional staff. Our dinner had a good choice of menu and food was well presented and enjoyed. Altogether a good choice. We would recommend staying here. It’s close to the motorway and Bridgwater.

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.
