Taunton /ˈtɔːntən/ is a large regional town in Somerset, England. The town currently peaks at a population of 69,570 as of 2018. The town itself has over 1,000 years of religious and military history, including a monastery dating back to the 10th century and Taunton Castle, which has origins in the Anglo Saxon period and was later the site of a priory. The Normans then built a stone structured castle, which belonged to the Bishops of Winchester. The current heavily reconstructed buildings are the inner ward, which now houses the Museum of Somerset and the Somerset Military Museum.

4 of us visited last week for evening meal. 3 or us ordered Somerset Smokie and it was delicious, large portion, lots of fish, would highly recommend as were the fajitas. Have had the burger before which I also highly recommend. Staff helpful, lovely atmosphere, good service, nice beer. Affogato for desert, delicious. This is my favourite pub in West Somerset. For a pub maybe slightly pricey, otherwise would have given a 5 but will go back.

I have dined here many times over the years. With my husband or eldest daughter. We have all enjoyed tremendously. On my last visit I had the monkfish followed by the bread and butter pudding. It was wonderful, so many intricate flavours. Looking forward to our next visit!

If you’re planning on eating out in Taunton then make this fantastic restaurant your first port of call . Probably worth booking in advance as it gets very busy & rightly so !
Very cosy restaurant with a great atmosphere & very attentive staff but not overbearing . The food is superb & we had the best foie gras we’ve eaten outside of France. Genuinely can’t fault Augustus & would defiantly recommend a visit.

Visited for a friends birthday, owners couldn't have been nicer, and brought out our birthday cake and sung happy birthday. Food was lovely, and all tastes were catered for from mild to wild. Would definitely recommend both for food and experience.

Little Italy, is located in Orchard Shopping Centre and you get to it beside Cafe Nero down the alleyway opposite the hairdressers. It is small and cosy and only opens until 10pm at weekends.
The food is authentic. Best bolonaise we have ever tested. Served good quality wine. Extremely friendly and attentive. All made fresh. We will be back now we have found this little gem.

Visited this lovely Italian restaurant twice in the last month, St Valentine's Day and Birthday meal last night.
Such a friendly, welcoming restaurant, very attentive staff and absolutely amazing food. Had 3 courses each visit and every dish has been amazing. The food is so delicious, so very tasty with lovely flavours running through each and every dish. Even the coffee to finish was fab... and the limoncello Mmmmm
We shall be back again very soon.

Castle Bow Restaurant offers fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for any occasion. Head Chef, Liam Finnegan's menu is constantly evolving, created to fully embrace the season. It is this quality and care that transforms every meal into a true West Country experience.
The food is simply outstanding - beautifully cooked & presented. Lovely touch of canapés and an amuse bouche as complimentary extras. Having dined at Pony & Trap and Lympstone Manor over the last year (both of which have Michelin stars) in my opinion the food...MoreDear Charlotte M Thank you for the excellent review. Maybe that star will come this year! Best regards Marc

NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS - We wish to inform you that our restaurant will be temporarily closed from August 15th to September 2nd inclusive. Our bar will be open as usual. <br><br>Family owned village pub in the heart of the community serving homemade, seasonal, locally sourced classic pub food.
A very friendly pub in the heart of Stoke St. Gregory. This pub has it's own pizza oven so makes delicious stone bake Pizzas. The steak burger is also really good and comes with a lovely fresh bun, onion rings, chips etc. All cooked to perfection. The £12 for two courses menu is excellent value (there is also a 3 course deal too).
