user reviews of the Carnival Inn, Bridgwater

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

Looks like a nice Tudor building from the outside, but inside is the most average typical Wetherspoons going.

Place could do with a refurb, but having said that it is a useful place (as they all are!).

the guide books say that the town has never really recovered from the English civil war , and Monmouth's rebellion
I would say the bar staff have not either

smile , don't hold your breath. attitude problem you bet.

when I ordered a guest cider, which was on the bottom shelf, the bar person
suggested I have the next one up, so she did not have to bend down !!

Came in here yesterday morning for a breakfast and a pint. It's a large Wetherspoons in the typical style of the chain. It was predictably busy, before other pubs had opened. Ales were Cotleigh Long-Eared Owl, Sharps Doom Bar, Redpoint IPA, Ruddles Best, Greene King Abbot, Quantock Nightjar & Blindmans Golden Spring. Ciders were Westons Old Rosie & Marcle Hill, Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon & Thistly Cross Whisky Cask. We sat near the Bridgwater Carnival photographs at the rear of the pub, that the previous reviewer refers to. Breakfast was adequate and well priced. Had my little one in tow and plenty of others had too. Fairly soulless, as usual. But serves a (good) purpose.

Fastjedi, if you are comparing this pub to the others in Bridgwater, then this really does have good food and good ale. If, however, you leave the insular fleapit that is Bridgwater and venture out into the wider world, you will realise that this is a truly awful pub.

Think this is really a young persons pub - however, it is a pleasant place to sit and have a coffee or a quick lunch time snack when it is raining. I actually quite like how the inside is arranged and that is despite this not being somewhere I would usually go to. - 9 Sep 2008 16:56

Once you are inside a Wetherspoons they are all the same, this one is no exception.

Generally busy, especially on a week-end when the great unwashed of Bridgwater come here to get tanked up on cheap booze before hitting the town's world-renowned nightspots ("Remedies", "Galleries", "Palace"). Expect a long wait at the bar as your feet stick to the liquor-soaked floor. The prices and range of beers seem tempting, until you realise that most of them are barely fit to be drunk; by the time you've hit upon the one decent pint in the whole pub you may well have tried half a dozen! If you can get your chosen drink back to a table you'll probably find it piled high with used glasses and dirty crockery. I could go on but there doesn't seem much point; my advice is to steer well clear.
