"Had an amazing carvery meal at the Whitminster last Sunday. The food was just incredibly tasty and I thought, really good value too. The waiters and waitresses were so attentive and friendly which was nice. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend the Sunday carvery – delicious!"

"For my wife’s recent ‘significant’ birthday, I booked an afternoon tea for herself and five chums at The Whitminster Inn.  What a success it was!  They were delighted with the attentive service they received upon arrival and throughout the entire meal.
The sunny conservatory was a fantastic setting for the occasion and they could not get over the quantity and quality of the food.  In fact, they had enough left over to bring some cake home for our boys and myself!
Many thanks for such a splendid afternoon tea.."

"It was perfect last night for our fish and chip night :-) x."

"Hired this place to deliver a training course, the facilities are good, the staff are very friendly and the food is fantastic. This location has so much to offer with free parking, easy access from the motorway. It has on its location a Chinese and Indian restaurant with a restaurant serving good wholesome pub food.

A must place to visit for a great meal and very accommodating staff."

"Had a small wedding ceremony at the Whitminster Inn . Very professionaly handled by all staff especially Claire. Made the occasion very smooth and trouble free. Thank you"

Jodie D March 2017 

"We found this restaurant on a Motorhome phone App. Called in advance to confirm if it was ok for us to stay overnight and to reserve a table for an evening meal. Oh my life what a gem of a find. There are 3 places to choose to dine, Chinese, Indian and an amazing Gastro dining restaurant. The staff are so attentative and helpful from the moment you check in. All the members of staff from the waitressess, bar tenders and members of the management team, went out of their way to make sure all the customers were happy with everthing. We ate in the Gastro part of the establishment. The food is amazing ....which is such an understatement to be fair. If only we lived closer as I know this would definitely become a regular place for us to visit. We will make sure we call again each time we are in this part of the country.."

"Dear John & Claire,

Thank you very much for all you have done for little Vashtie's birthday party”.

James & Vashtie October 16


"Dear John,

Together with three good friends, Jennie and I visited your hotel/Restaurant on Wednesday evening to sample your “Steak Night.” I must first tell you that my wife Jennie and I had the good fortune to lunch at Raymond Blanc’s “Le Manoir aux quat’ Saisons in Oxford last Wednesday June 18th. As you might imagine it was a most memorable occasion.

However, it has to be said that our experience at the Whitminster inn was equally memorable and indeed impressive. On our arrival we received a warm reception from two delightful young waitresses for whom nothing appeared to be too much trouble. I seem to recall that it was Ashleigh who took our order and she catered to our every whim in the most professional manner.

I then ordered some drinks from the bar which were quickly dispensed with a warm and friendly smile. The food arrived in good time and it was so beautifully presented on large white plates that it seemed to be something of a travesty to disturb it. the steaks, which were of the finest quality and of a generous proportion were all cooked exactly as requested. The triple cooked potato chips, the large mushroom, the grilled tomato and the peas and the salad were of similar quality.

The meal included a glass of wine which we expected be quite ordinary when considering the amazingly reasonable, “price of the package” However! It was most acceptable and indeed very drinkable and it was very much enjoyed by us all.

Having spent a most memorable evening, we expressed our appreciation to the young lady waitresses who had cared for us so well. May I ask that you convey our compliments to your accomplished chef and his team and congratulate him on a job well done.

As Arnold Shwarzenegger would say; “I’ll be back”!

Kindest regards

Max H September 16

Its a great local place to meet and your staff are 2nd to none! Sam is amazing! always has Pauls favourite beer poured and on the bar (in a glass of course!) by the time he gets there and always willing to suggest new ones that he would like.
