Beautiful We visited here Friday evening and were extremely impressed with the service, the atmosphere, the staff and the food. All the staff were so polite, kind, friendly and chatty and attentive to our needs making sure we were well looked after. The outside patio area where we ate was decorated really lovely and was nice and warm and the garden looked really lovely too. We decided to go all out on food and had some nibbles while we waited, the bread was served warm and was really tasty with the oil and the olives. I had arancini to start which was delicious and melt in the mouth - the best arancini I have ever had! My partner had the Thai fish cakes to start and he really enjoyed them and how fresh they were. For mains we had a fillet steak and a sirloin steak and we shared a blue cheese sauce as it’s more than enough for us to share! Both steaks were cooked medium rare and were both cooked to perfection. For pudding we both had the sticky toffee pudding which was super yummy! Thank you so much to all of the staff at The Old Vicarage for making it a really special and enjoyable night for us, we can’t wait to come back for another meal.

Beautiful outdoor dining Another amazing meal at Old Vicarage. The effort they have put into creating a beautiful outdoor dining area that is also toasty and warm is amazing! The food was completely delicious and the meringue was one of the best I've ever had. Cannot recommend enough.

Covid safe and friendly staff Three of us booked for a lunch in the new covered patio area. So bright and warm, plenty of heating - if you wanted to use a rug they were all on display ready for you to chose one. The owners and staff made us feel so welcome and they were all very attentive to our needs. Our food was delicious and the waiters listened to our individual requests. Such a nice atmosphere - we have already made another booking. Thank you all for a superb lunch.

Affordable elegance Without doubt the most gorgeous hotel we have ever stayed in. The beautifully restored historic architecture and sumptuous decor create an unrivalled old world charm. Our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and the food and wine was tasty, well presented and very reasonably priced. Sparkling modern bathrooms, fluffy towels, quality bed linen, excellent mattresses and an enormous four-poster bed made us feel like film-stars for the weekend!

A little bit of heaven in Bridgwater! This was a repeat visit as once was definitely not enough! And it was every bit as good as the first time. Excellent room with luxurious bed, delicious food and fantastic service from every member of staff. Candy and Peter were the most genial of hosts who made us feel we were visiting friends, we were made so welcome. Can’t wait for our third trip, which better come soon!!
