Some friends gave me a voucher for shooting at the nearby range together with lunch at The Smokery. The shooting was great, the food not so! We had smoked lamb and it was very poor, salty and tough but no taste. The vegetables were completely uninspiring and there was absolutely nothing to recommend it. I had eaten here some years...

I attended as part of a large group for a business lunch. The food was incredible and staff where very attentive. Hadn't heard of this place until my boss announced the meal so I will be returning with family! Thank you for a lovely meal. Highly recommended!!

We called in for some lunch and were quite disappointed with the food and the service. We stood at the counter ready to order and were ignored by someone at the desk as she was talking to another staff member. Eventually she turned to speak to us, but with no apology. We asked about the menu and she was very... More

This place is tucked away, in a picturesque spot, so blink and you miss it. We went for lunch, which was simple, but delicious. If you don't like fish, it may not be for you, but the smoked trout was gorgeous and served with a simple salad and potatoes. And then I sampled the best sticky toffee pudding ever. The... More

Booked for lunch with no expectations as am not from the area. Was not disappointed everything smoked! Broccoli and Stilton soup to start delicious, highly recommend the smoked salmon main plenty of it either with potatoes or granary bread, puddings were good but the smoked cheese was plentiful and very tasty. Would definitely go back. Thanks Pip xx

We visited on a Saturday lunchtime, hadn't booked a table and took a chance we would get in as their reputation locally is very good. Luckily, due to The Bath & West Show being on, we managed to do so. Our main meal of smoked chicken with new potatoes and an excellent mixed salad - which amongst the variety contained... More

This is a Restaurant that specialises in smoked meat, fish and eel. The menu written on the boards, only changes in minor ways and the main course is always a choice of smoked meat, fish, eel with salad, boiled new potatoes or bread. The restaurant attracts the elder community. On this particular occasion the soup was disappointing and bland, I... More
