On arriving at the Pilgrims, we were met by the owner, who could not have been more welcoming. My colleague and I were looking for somewhere close to where we were working and with a bit of character, which we found in abundance. There are not many rooms, but what they had were well fitted out and functional, with comfy...

We went to the Pilgrims for our wedding anniversary and a week later are back again having dinner with friends. The food is delicious and I always have the prawns! Followed by fish as I think their fish dishes are superb. Yesterday (as I had been the week before) I had the lamb which was cooked just right. Somehow we...

We had a lovely relaxing stay for 2 nights. The rooms have everything you could possibly need lovely thick white fluffy towels roll top bath and walk in shower. Every flavour of tea and also hot chocolate and coffee. Very comfy bed and the room was always warm. We ate in the restaurant and had a fabulous dinner on New...

We have stayed here probably half a dozen times and what brings us back year after year is its such a delightful place to stay. Sally and Jules run a very fine establishment virtually single handed. The 5 rooms in a converted skittle alley are beautifully and thoughtfully furnished with flair and imagination. Excellent bathroom with deep soaking bath and...

If you are in need of a quiet break with outstanding food this is the place to be. All the rooms are part of a converted barn and are eloquently furnished with beautiful bathroom facilities such as a walk in shower. The rooms have all the finishing touches of any 5* hotel including bath robes and tea/coffee facilities etc.... The...

Sally and Jools couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. They took the stress out of travelling for business and the food is worth the trip any day of the week. Really lovely food which I would have struggled to match in any top notch restaurant and I have been to a few. the setting is very rural which for...

Great location: although right off a road, it is very quite and peaceful, and the rooms are along a little courtyard. The breakfast is exceptionally good- everything is locally sourced, freshly produced, and organic- and delicious. Must admit that the rooms are not luxurious (but rather a really upscale version of a Premier Inn) and the the price was a...

So delighted to find this super place. A warm welcome from Sally & Jools after arriving late & despite the kitchen being closed we were provided with a delicious supper. Sadly we only stayed one night but are certain to return even if only to enjoy another comfortable night & superb breakfast although we hope to arrive in time for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pilgrims is a 4 star Restaurant with Rooms and holds 2 AA Rosettes. It's as relaxed as a country pub but the food is better than many a city restaurant - not least because all the ingredients come from 'just over the brow of the hill.' And the rooms are simply stunning, Egyptian cotton, king size beds, roll top baths and walk-in showers. The Pilgrims - the best of Somerset on a plate. ... more   less
