“Five Star”

We have eaten at The Five Dials many times but never stayed there. Our friends in the village were having a Golden Wedding celebration so we stayed for one night. Lovely room,huge bathroom / wet room and as expected a wonderful breakfast. Thank you Sarah and Paul you work so hard. See you again soon

Another Fabulous Welcome;

Stayed here for one night whilst on a business trip. First time here without my wife but as ever it was just perfect. Sarah and Paul are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble, they both work so hard. Food is beautiful, a great pint and friendly locals too. The rooms are large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. 

Would recommend The Five Dials without hesitation. 



A real gem

Received a lovely warm welcome on arrival. The room was really clean, fresh with nice decor and a very comfy bed. The large wet room was much appreciated. I had the pork chop for dinner which I loved. Very friendly atmosphere in the bar and dining room and the prices were reasonable. Breakfast was lovely with locally sourced produce. Would certainly recommend and looking forward to staying again.

Mini break in welcoming Inn;

Just back from a lovely 2 nights in this warm and friendly Inn. Chosen for location and good reviews - not disappointed! Followed the Wolf Hall locations at nearby NT Barrington Court and Montacute House :) Clean ground floor room with nice small touches. Best bits: friendly hosts and outstanding food. Thanks for your welcome! Highly recommended!


“An absolute gem!”

This is the best, the pub/restaurant has a unique charm. Modern yet vintage, clean, cosy and welcoming.The food was fantastic with really good specials and desserts. Breakfast was delicious with all local produce. The staff and owners are so friendly and welcoming.


Some lovely touches;

Everything you would expect from a good 5 star hotel. Clean,tissues in the room, good quality toiletries, mineral water, lovely healthy breakfast with a good choice and good coffee and a second cup offered. I would definitely recommend. Much better than any other pub we have stayed in. We upgraded to the king size but still reasonable.
