The Hatch Inn

Village Rd, Hatch Beauchamp, Taunton TA3 6SN, UK – 01823 480245

The staff were friendly and warm and they have a small but handy selection of toys to distract the kids. Unfortunately when it came to the food it fell apart. My husband had the duck, which he said was so so. My order was a bit of a disaster, what arrived wasn’t really what I’d asked for, but I should stress this could well have been poor communication on my part. The guy who tried to help was keen to get it right - so keen he kept running off as I was midway through trying to explaining what wasn’t quite right. Result being that it was all even more confused and exhausting. They have some outside tables and chairs, one was next to a quiet-ish road, the other was at the back and not very inviting. No garden, which is a real shame. Despite this it was still a pleasant place to pass time in.

Food was nice last time I ate there. Always a good menu when I browse. Food always looks nice. Good beers and ciders.

Holiday Inn Express Taunton M5, Jct 25

Blackbrook Business Park, Blackbrook Park Ave, Taunton TA1 2PX, UK – 0871 902 1632

Lovely , clean fresh looking hotel. Breakfast was self service but plentiful with a wide range of foods. Beds were very comfortable, room spacious and bathroom was clean and large. Would certainly stay here again.

Room was clean and had all facilities required for our one night stay (although bottled water (not plastic!) would have been appreciated). The ensuite was very good too. Plenty of choice from the buffet breakfast. We also had a snack & drink from the bar in the evening - the potato skins & dips are good! Parking and check-in & -out were easy. Would recommend.

Holiday Inn Taunton M5 Jct.25

Deane Gate Ave, Taunton TA1 2UA, UK – 0871 942 9080

This hotel is quite big, with many rooms and amenities. It is attached to a gym with a swimming pool that is free for residents. The rooms are large and air conditioned. It has all been redone recently so there is a nice new feeling to it. A couple of small things are still to be improved: the iron in the room is quite bad (no steam function), not that many fruit/healthy options for breakfast, rooms not well indicated (this place can be a maze!). The rooms are also incredibly cold. Even if you turn off the a/c, it automatically goes back on in the middle of the night. Setpoint: 16°. Really annoying.

Brilliant Holiday Inn. Loved our room. We had hot chocolate in addition to the usual teas and coffees plus kit kats!!!! Very happy family and child here. Plus bottles of water which were perfect for our long journey. We really were pleased with the cleanliness of our room and facilities. offers competitive rates for any type of hotel, from small independent hotels to a five star luxury ones.

The Hankridge Arms

Hankridge Way, Riverside, Taunton TA1 2LR, UK – 01823 444405

I particularly liked the choice of meal size. We opted for small as it was lunchtime. Not only was the portion good but it was also delicious, fish and chips. Friendly service, nice atmosphere and a lovely breeze because they had the sense to open the windows, it was a very hot day. Would definitely recommend.

Really good food. The staff were most attentive. Did not have to wait to be served at out table. A nice change from some we have been in.

The Nags Head Tavern

Mattock's Tree Hill, Taunton TA3 5NW, UK – 01823 442258

Food is tasty and plentiful. Staff with a good sense of humour made the evening very pleasant. Very Good Garden area plenty of seats and tables.

We arrived late and still made us feel welcome kept the kitchen open. Food was plentiful. Thanks.

Farmer's Arms

Slough Hill, West Hatch, Taunton TA3 5RS, UK – 01823 480980

Fantastic B&B. Have been away on business here for 2 weeks and have another 2 weeks. Loved it so much I will be bringing the wife down for a weekend. Hosts have looked after me amazingly and the food is to die for. So nice to have a quiet drink in the beer garden after a long day at work. The room is bigger than my house! Will be back for pleasure not business.

nice place good food helpful friendly staff great location

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!
