3Self Classified Small Hotel Ratings explained
20 HIGH STREET Rode, Nr. Frome, Somerset, BA11 6NZ
Situated on the old Fussel's Brewery Site in the heart of Rode, this old country Inn, circa 17th century, has many lovely features to enjoy, one of which is the working Queen Victoria Golden Jubilee Clock, but more importantly the Inn has a warm, welcoming and cosy feel to it. The shower en-suite B & B rooms overlook the courtyard that leads out to the car park from which private access can be gained. The restaurant has a traditional menu and dress code informal. The two bars serve a wide range of quality beverages and are frequented by the locals who make all the guests welcome. For business guests they can commute to Bath (12 miles), Frome & Trowbidge (4.5 miles), Bradford Upon Avon (5 miles) and other local sites and for holiday guests, Longleat, Bath, Chedder Gorge and many more attractions are within easy driving distance. Frequent Bus service into Frome, Bath and Trowbridge and easy access to Park and Ride for Bath and Bristol. Please note when booking the standard twin rooms, these can be prepared as kingize doubles, just use the special request box.

Village pub.
Excellent value. Breakfast very good and non greasy! Well run, clean pub.
Room good but noisy boiler system starts up about every half hour during the night. Sounds a bit like sleeping on a cross channel ferry!

Would. Go back anytime
This was incredibly good value in a beautiful. Traditional pub really enjoyed the stay and hope to return. Lovely village too. Room was large with large bed and ensuite. Only constructive crit was the walls in the bedroom pock marked with holes which catch your eye and an easy fix. Highly recommend this pub.

Overnight Stay
Stayed in the 'Green' room which was very spacious and comfortable. Powerful and hot shower. Had to have the window open as it was a hot night and could hear a background hum all night, presumably from the kitchen vents, but it wasn't too much of an issue. Breakfast was very tasty, although a little oily, and the service could have been a bit better. Pub had a nice atmosphere and is centrally located in a picturesque village. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Stayed on a special offer so excellent value for money.

Lovely village pub
Was used for visiting a friend and was perfect for what we needed.
Was concerned when I realised it was a sports pub and the England World Cup game was being shown until 1pm but I didn't hear a thing, rooms not above the bar. My partner watched the football and was made to feel welcome.
Had an evening meal which was lovely and being coeliac I felt they had great understanding for the need of Gluten Free and had a choice of dishes.
Friendly staff and room was clean and very comfy bed. Interesting history in the pub.
We will definately stay again.

An excellent spacious and well-appointed room; for example it was nice to have proper glass tumblers in the bathroom instead of the usual plastic disposable ones. Breakfast -excellent coffee, and plenty of well-cooked food with great bread doorsteps. Without being asked, the waitress even brought freshly made toast to replace the toast which had gone cold.

Nice spacious room, good food, good cider!
We arrived just in time for last orders and grabbed a pint of scrumpy each to take up to the room. The locals were fairly noisy in the bar which was beneath our room, until probably midnight. This wasn't ideal as we were up at 7 and we'd just driven down from Chester so wanted to get to sleep ASAP. However the cider helped no end what with it being 6% and the breakfast in the morning was top notch and cheap. The room was great too. High ceiling with beams, sofa, plenty of mirrors, desk for the girlfriend to apply her make-up at with a large mirror behind it, bathroom had plenty of room too. Would definately stay here again and recommend it.

So nealy very good
Very friendly character inn. The room overlooking the courtyard area was subject to more or less constant mechanical noise from what appeared to be a celler chiller unit and gurgling noise from the heating system. The main bedroom was very comfortable with fresh clean bed linen. However the bathroom's shower was leaking and adjacent floor covering beginning to lift. The wc and soil pipe need a bit of tlc, and a seat that cannot stay up?My other grouse as to why such flimsy toilet paper. Breakfast very adequate, did not have evening meal but diners looked satisfied. Overall, good value and would stay again. would
