If you want a place that ooze's character this is the place for you.

Friendly atmosphere in pub, big spacious rooms and a great non greasy tasty brekkie on the morning.

Lovely place to stay overnight

We stayed here on our way to holiday in North Devon.

What a charming tranquil place. The room was clean and lovely decorated for the 3 of us plus 4 legged variety. The food was lovely and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The walks around the area were also lovely and you really felt you were in the countryside.

Long weekend stay

Comfortable room, excellent bed, brilliant evening meal in restaurant, what more could you want.

A pub in an out of the way village as busy as that speaks for itself.

Great pub B & B

Location near Taunton ideal for visiting friends.

Very relaxed atmosphere. Would prefer a more comfortable bed but overall good B & B.

Friendly pub which seemed very popular with locals and judging by the overcrowded car park lots of folks from further afield.

Accommodation was fairly basic but clean with a powerful shower and ample clean towels. Room had a generous supply tea/coffee/biscuits. Breakfast was well cooked and presented.

winchester arms

We stayed here for one night on our way to Devon, we had booked room 5 but on arrival had been given the larger room 6 with king size bed at the same price, the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

We had our evening meal here which was excellent (choice of three good vegetarian options on the specials board), the breakfast was also good.

Above and beyond

Wonderful setting, nice pub and B&B.

We arrived after food service had ended, but the lovely staff went out of their way to provide us with a lovely pub meal. The room was spotless and nicely arranged. The communal bathroom and toilets were also clean and fresh. Service was excellent. I really don't have anything bad to say about our overnight stay in the Winchester Arms. Definitely recommended.

Excellent experience

As one who frequently stays in Premier Inns, (where to be fair you know what you will be getting will be very acceptable, if predictable), "The Winch" was a breath of fresh air.

Very nice (if slightly compact) room (Room No. 5), with a comfortable bed and a good powerful shower in the en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was beautifully cooked, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate my need for a prompt start and departure. Also had my evening meal there, which was very tasty and all washed down with a decent pint of real ale. Free wi-fi was an unexpected bonus and helpful from my business perspective I would very happily stay again should I be passing.
