Reviewed yesterday NEW

An old pavilion is surrounded by newer developments and it is a very nice ground with a good atmosphere. You are closer to the players than at the large test grounds and the facilities are modern and good. However, as a visiting member of another county you will not be welcomed as most of the ground is reserved for Somerset... More

Visited again today. Lovely setting, good crowd, good weather, good wicket. Food in Stragglers Coffee Shop good as usual. Pity about Somerset' s dismal and unprofessional display of batting

The County Ground at Taunton is a lovely place to watch cricket, and amongst the nicest in the country (I think Worcester is the only one in a nicer location). It is right by the river, and when you are in the ground you wouldn't know you were in the middle of a busy town. The staff are always friendly... More

Have been to this regular function for several years. Nice location looking over the cricket ground. Great dining facilities for groups. Well stocked bar with several draught beers . Wine a little on the expensive side. Imaginative menu, good portions and well cooked and presented. Roast cauliflower very tasty. Friendly prompt service. Toilet facilities very clean. Excellent facility.

This was the seventh year I have booked the Cricket Club for this event, and I have booked next year, which I think says it all! The food is of a very high standard and they happily cater for any dietary requirements, and I can honestly say I have never had one complaint from the many attendees over the years.... More

We chose this venue as convenient location for friends and family coming from away and is central for various accommodation. The venue was laid out exactly as requested and the tables dressed with napkins of our colour theme. Our three course meal was ordered in advance and we were given a choice of 3 options on each course. The food... More

Wholesome food as well as tasteful and sustaining drinks. This is beneficial to relax in from the business of outside stresses of life. There are TV screens focussing on sporting events especially cricket. The catering staff are friendly and amicable. in dealing with requests.
