The Washford Inn

Welcome to the Washford Inn.

Station Road, Washford

Initially a traditional village pub, this ideally located Inn was recently refurbished to a more stylish gastro Inn to offer guests an elegant dining option as well as a full bar area for people to indulge in our locally resourced food and beverages. The lovely owners, Cyril and Vanessa together with their friendly staff are here to make your stay memorable and relaxing at the same time.

Situated on the A39 in Washford Somerset almost half way between Taunton and Minehead makes the Inn an ideal stop for holiday makers traveling on the beautiful South West coastline. Here at the Washford Inn we have a passion for locally resourced food and for this reason, we aim to literally serve you a slice of the local area on your plate. Give us a call to book a table for dinner in our relaxed and chic restaurant, or even pop in for a delicious lunch with your friends and family.

Our spacious 5 rooms are all en suite and equipped with all the necessary equipment to make you feel as home as possible during your stay. For room availability please visit our hotel page.

The Washford Inn has recently been completely renovated, including the B&B facilities. Mine host is extremely friendly and is ensuring every detail is spot on for his guests. The meal we had was of superb quality and not expensive. Recommended without reservation.

We were well looked after but Cyril and his lovely lady Vanessa and staff.

As a family we pool what we'd spend on Christmas presents and spend it on a long weekend away. As we were staying at The Dragon Hotel down the road this fitted the bill.

Our visit consisted of an evening meal. We did not stay overnight so the hotel related questions are not relevant for our visit.

Visited this pub today for first time as staying at nearby Porlock and fancied a nice pub lunch with my wife and elderly father in law and the pub looked very nice and inviting from outside.We received a very nice welcome from the landlord who ensured we were comfortably seated and warm enough as weather was cold outside.

The food was well priced and was all home cooked and fresh and was exceptional.

The chicken pie, gammon and fish & chips were delicious and I would say that it was one of the nicest meals we have had at a pub at lunchtime.
