    This is foremost an informal pub with an excellent restaurant and lodge/hot tub accommodation. We have been coming to The Baiting House since it re-opened in its current look and come back at least twice a year. The staff here are alway extremely friendly, welcoming, and unpretentious. If you are a Hyacinth Bucket kind of person do not be offended by the effervescent nature of those who welcome you, they are very genuine perhaps it is you who are not. Superb food and very broad range of bar stock to keep every taste catered for and reflects the pricing band, you get what you pay for. Perhaps try a lodge for an evening or two, get the right weather and clear skies for watching shooting stars from the relaxing comfort of your own hot tub!

    Last night we had six friends eating with us. This is a very disappointing evening. Generally the food was slow. Not a great deal of choice choice for some of the guests. The service was so slow. This is not what we expect from the beating house, as we have always had five star treatment in the past, I need to speak to the house prior to our visit it took me four telephone calls to actually get through. I need education. I asked them to ring me back a message on their answer system and there was no reply. Eventually I got through to the manager who sorted the The issue out. Baiting House please get back to your old standards. We used to love you.

    This is our fourth time staying and eating at The Baiting House. The food is exceptional. It far surpasses what you would expect from an unsuspecting pub on a rural B road. So much care goes into the curation of the menu and the execution does not disappoint. The cheese souffle is a firm favourite which we are glad to see remains on the menu, accompanied by a selection of other starters which are equally appealing, but the cheese souffle always wins. Seasonality is an obvious concern and is reflected in what is on offer. Do not miss the bread - malted cheese and Marmite butter will convert even haters of the infamous yeast extract. Last night I chose a perfectly cooked serving of pollock as my main. It came with romesco sauce, buttered leeks and a generous portion of chips. My dining partner had the pork belly which he also thoroughly enjoyed. And we were pleased we left room for pud. The creme brulee with pear and whisky was delicious, as was the bit of chocolate tort with hazelnut icecream which I pilfered from my companion. The wine menu gives plenty of choice without being overwhelming. There is a very nice and affordable bottle of Airen/Sauvignon Blanc, or if you are feeling flush, a delightful sounding Chablis. The red menu has the usual suspects, including the temptation of a Barolo or Chateauneuf du Pape for those celebrating. Despite the high quality of the food and drink on offer, it all comes in at a very reasonable price. Expect to pay over £50 a head for three courses and wine, but leave far more satisfied than you would paying a similar amount at soul-less gastro pubs on the outskirts of towns.

    Firstly I’ve only put noise level moderate because there isn’t an option to describe how it has a lovely level of personal yet friendly and inviting. We stayed locally and once we had eaten here on the Friday we simply didn’t go anywhere else. This is a true gem in the countryside with everything you could wish for.. Mark is welcoming, accommodating, friendly and super efficient, constantly being present.. the staff are all superb and the chef!! Well ! Absolutely outstanding ⭐️ everything from lamb to beef to pizza for lunch was top quality and exquisite.. You can enjoy long country walks from the doorstep and they even have lodges and rooms so we have already decided we will be back to the area and this time we will stay here!

    Had a lovely meal. The only thing that would of given full makes was the courses came out too quickly. We had only just finished pir nibbles and the start arrived, and when they cleared the starter plates the main course arrived. Other than that we could not fault it.

    While staying in the area, we booked the Baiting House.. WOW just fantastic.. service was friendly, brilliant and knowledgeable. We ate probably the best meal we have had out in a very long time in an atnospheric yet personal environment. We then continued with drinks in the bar area and met Wayne in maintenance with his adorable dog who recomended one of the circular walks on their website.. so we came back today, had lunch and then embarked upon walk 3! Popped back in to the Baiting House, had a drink and I’m sure we will return before we head back to the West Country.. highly recommend the Baiting House for food/drinks.. very welcoming even in our muddy hiking gear.. their accommodation looks fabulous too.

    Incredible combinations of flavours, and perfectly cooked from locally sourced suppliers, the meat was beautiful. Breakfast was also lovely and really nice coffee. Only thing I would say is the restaurant is VERY warm which lovely but slightly uncomfortable after a while but highly recommend along with a stay in the lodge. Everything is one place 👌

    As always, an amazing meal. The menu rarely changes, but when it’s this good it doesn’t need to. Cheese soufflé was perfect as always, and would gladly have 3 for starter, main, and dessert. Beef was perfectly cooked. Staff so friendly, and manager recognised us despite not having been back in 6 months. Rapidly our go to for NYE and birthdays. Oh, and the Sunday lunch is truly amazing!!
