Excellent service and delicious food. Portion size was spot on and quality was excellent. One of the best restaurants l have ever visited and believe me I've tried a lot over the years.

In the heart of Somerset, The Oakhouse is a rustic restaurant and bar with 2 AA Rosettes and a place in the Michelin Guide. The food makes the most of everything the West Country has to offer, with hearty British dishes joined by a dedicated cider, cheese and ale menu. An historic building in the quaint medieval town of Axbridge, original beam ceilings and exposed brick walls add to the rural charm.

    Poor selection of main course. Alot of chicken. Pleasant surprise of an amuse Booche. Starters of smoke pigeon didn't taste of any smokiness. The main of sea bass x4 was sadly not enough on the plate for any of us. The flavours of all the meals were interesting. Deserts for the ladies were fine but the 2 cheese boards for the men were laughable. Tiny amounts presented on large plates. The impression was that "profit rather than quantity" was important to the hotel.
    Very expensive.

    The restaurant had not received our booking via Bookatable - it was Father's Day - luckily as we had been before, they gave us a table!
    The food was great - prawns with avocado sorbet and the pate starters were very tasty. The roast beef was cooked medium rare, with a nice Yorkshire pudding and a lovely selection of perfectly cooked vegetables - perfect! Plenty of it, we could not fit in dessert. Friendly helpful service throughout, good beer and wine! We'll be back...

    Great food, nicely presented, consistent with previous visit even this time a Monday evening. Only complaint was the length of interval between courses served and of course the Axbridge limited parking .

    The restaurant is lovely as are the staff. We had Sunday lunch which was, on the whole a tasty, hearty meal. The vegetables were excellent. The rice pudding for dessert was especially good. The one negative was the starter - prawn and salmon which was fairly tasteless and needed, at least, some lemon and also more oomph in the sauce. There is a lovely atmosphere which was enhanced by a singer/guitarist who entertained us quietly in the background.

    Set in wonderfully historic Axbridge, the Oakhouse is excellent value. The atmosphere is fine, the food, especially the hake, is well prepare and the service efficient and friendly.
