Just came back from a weekend stay at Farthings near Taunton. My first reflections are not good. A chaotic breakfast service, over priced drinks (£7 for a glass of wine) (cheapest bottle on menu over £20) and poor restaurant food. Breakfast ran like this.. no glasses for orange juice, then no plates for cereal, then ran out of white bread... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, however there are just a few points I would like to address. Firstly in regards to the price of the wine I cannot understand any one looking at a wine menu choosing the largest size glass we do and of one of the higher end wines on our menu with... More

Myself and some family members stayed for a night and ate in the restaurant as well. We also brought along their elderly dog, who coped very well with the gently sloping stairs up to the first floor. I'm not sure she could've coped with getting to the Rowan suite I stayed in and I was glad I didn't have too... More

Booked with a voucher site & what a wonderful thing I did! Such a beautiful venue, perfect suite with a fabulous restaurant. The room, food, wine & location was amazing. So much so, I booked to go again at full price for the next week!

The word out of my mouth when we opened the door to the garden room. A truly stunning room even had its own entrance hall! A very large bed in a large room that was tastefully laid out. Desk, dressing table, large chest of drawers, loads of storage space.(take a breath). Lovely view of the garden from a window seat,... More

On arrival me and my mum found the over all appearance of the hotel very welcoming, homely and picturesque, especially after taking a walk around the grounds.

We've been to the restaurant here twice using a Groupon voucher for steak and wine. The setting is pretty and the dining room tables laid with white tablecloths and fresh flowers. Food arrived quickly and was nicely presented, tasty and hot. My steak was a bit on the chewy side but the garlic butter and home made chips were spot... More

We enjoyed our stay - relaxing. Lovely gardens looked fab in the heat wave when we were there. Restaurant food good. Pleasant & helpful staff. I agree that the WiFi should be free - don't irritate people! This is a pleasant & quiet place to stay - if you seek nightlife go to Taunton.

The building is gorgeous, lovely decor throughout and clean. Had a welcoming email after booking - welcome a bit diluted by the offer to upgrade the room at more than double the price! Politely declined. Breakfast offered a good selection, but needed topping up more efficiently as items ran out quite quickly. 'Pastries' turned out to be croissants only which... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Farthings and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is in a lovely village location and again we were given a large, clean and well appointed room.

There was so much to praise about The Farthings. A quaint country hotel that is spotlessly clean, with helpful staff and very good food. We loved the garden and the fact that much of the restaurant fare can be found just outside the back door! Meals were lovely, and there is clearly care taken in the kitchen to make mealtimes...
