Perhaps we were unlucky but food very bland and uninteresting when it came to the table. The menu description made us believe we were in for a treat, but sadly this was not the case. The hotel/restaurant looks fantastic and very friendly staff.

It is hard to add to the fabulous reviews already written for this magical place. It is a fairy tale old house with a top class chef in a dream of A country location. On arrival we were met by the chef patron who invited us to wander anywhere in the house and grounds. We did. Visited the kitchens, the... More

We turned up lunchtime today unannounced to be told they're only open on Wednesday for pre-booked lunches however as they weren't terribly busy they would fit us in. The waiter was friendly, not overly so, the fire had been lit and was very cosy for our pre-lunch drink, and the food was to die for. It was fabulous. One of... More

Like some of the other reviewers, I really don't want to post this review otherwise everyone will want to go, and so they should. The house is beautiful and the welcome really warm. We went for dinner and were lucky enough to also be able to stay the night. The room was lovely, bed supremely comfortable and so peaceful. The... More

This place is a hidden gem,, tucked away on the lanes of sleepy Somerset. It's setting and surroundings are stunning. We went there with friends, not to stay just for an evenings get together. We were made to feel instantly welcomed, given nibbles with our drinks then shown to our own room to eat...the food really is mouth-wateringly good. I... More

I didn't want to post of review of Langford Fivehead because I didn't want other people to find this hidden gem and spoil it. This is the shortest review I have ever made. This establishment is simply perfection the hotel itself, the rooms, the food,the service, and wonderful value. Go and try it yourselves?

We have been here several times now and it just gets better and better! Seriously delicious food, beautifully presented, exceptional service and stunning location. I don't usually photograph my food, but my ham hock terrine with piccalilli starter was so pretty I couldn't help myself. I love it!

We have a real dilemma with Langford Fivehead. Our natural inclination is to tell everyone just how wonderful it is as a place to stay and eat but selfishly we hope it won't get so popular that we find it difficult to make bookings. All the praise heaped on the Langord by other reviewers is totally justified. This was our... More
