user reviews of Brent Knoll Inn, East Brent

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Last stop of the night in Somerset was the Brent Knoll Inn, situated on a one-way lane not too far from the A38 and the M5. It was quiet on my visit. The interior is divided into a small bar area and a larger restaurant which was made out for breakfast. So they presumably do accommodation. Just a handful of what appeared to be regulars were in the bar. Ales were St Austell Tribute, Fuller''s London Pride & Exmoor Fox. They also had Thatcher''s Traditional Cider. Fairly decent pub, apart from the service from the heavily tattooed barmaid. I''m never too impressed when bar staff don''t tell you the price and just offer you an outstretched hand awaiting some kind of payment. It''s always polite to state the price, before requesting money. It shouldn''t be up to the customer to ask how much his/her drink is. Apparently they offer CAMRA discounts on ales. I''m not sure if they do the same with ciders as communication didn''t get anywhere close to offering that.

Spent a few hours here yesterday, andvery happy with it. Wadworth George and the Dragon, Tribute and London Pride were all sampled, and the lady who obviously penned the invitation below was very friendly and welcoming as was the young fellah working behind the bar. CAMRA members note 20p per pint discount on real ales. try it. You'll like it.

Hi Guys, we took over the place April 2013 and we have been here nearly a year, please do visit and you will see how we have transformed the place, it still has two separate bars. The restaurant is doing extremely well with our very own Head Chef Mati, he worked at the fox and goose for 15 years, 2 jobs in 21 years says it all he is a great chef and cooks everything fresh on the day.

The locals are always welcoming and they will always have a chat and a laugh, we decided that we would open all day but we wasn't sure if this would work through Winter months and how wrong we were and we are pleased we did. We also have live music once a month on Fridays and we make sure they are only a solo or duo's and not too loud so you can still have a good olde chin wag and catch up with what's happening in the village.

Please come and check us out two very large beer gardens and lots of scrummy grub and beautifully kept real ales and gold old selection of ciders and lagers too.

Well, what I consider one of Somersets little gems. as Blackthorn states it is a very welcoming pub. My cohort and I had the Gammon steak, very nice and well presented, nothing seems to much trouble here. We were worried at first being the only ones in but, by 1 of the clock the patronisation started. mainly steaks from what we saw, which looked good also. We sampled the Otter ale and it was rightly on Form. definetly one to go for and a must try if nothing else.
My mother and sister are going there Saturday also so why not spread the good news.

This is a real 70’s pub. Everything about it seems decades out of date – the plastic menus, the paper table cloths, the Whitbread Trophy Bitter font, the whole look of the place. Even the food – when did you last see a pub offering Sherry Trifle and Black Forest Gateaux? Having said that, it’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just the character that the place has got.
There’s a lounge bar with a dining area off to the right, and a bar to the left with a TV and darts board. The dining area, whilst part of the main bar, is very clearly geared towards food, being all laid up with those paper tablecloths, napkins, place mats and cutlery even when the kitchen had stopped doing food. Tidying some of this away would have made is slightly more welcoming to drinkers, especially as by now the bar was packed and they were starting to spill out in to the lounge/dining area.
This has got to be one of the friendliest pubs I’ve ever been in. I tried to order my food at the bar, as I would normally expect to in a pub, but the barmaid not only insisted on taking it at the table, but carrying my drinks over for me as well. On top of that, they apologised for keeping us waiting, cheerily thanked us when we left, etc. I’m sure this would be a great pub to frequent if you lived nearby.
Beers were Otter Ale, London Pride, and possibly that Trophy Bitter. Or maybe that was just part of the décor. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Thatcher’s Dry.
