We were on the canal so after doing the locks we were ready for a beer and this was the perfect place to head for. A very smart village pub with restaurant facilities seating at the front and a rear patio and very friendly and cheery staff - and good beer! (My Rudgate Top Spin was excellent - cool and refreshing on a balmy evening). We were going into Melksham but had one pint there and returned for more ale at The Somerset instead! (ps the bus timetable in the shellter is out of date - use the one across the road). Excellent pub and handy for the canal. The sandwiches are very good too. Recommneded.

Love this pub and its getting better and better now that it is under the ownership of the previous managers of the multi award winning Goat and Tricycle in Bournemouth.5 Real ales very well kept and rotated.Excellent food.Great service.....well worth a visit.

A very charming, almost Cotswold-style old pub on the outside, though once inside a more modern feel is apparent; comfy seating and stained wood floors etc abound. Nevertheless, this doesn't render the Somerset any less cosy or characterful.

Indeed they do specialise in LocAles, which in this part of the world is a real boon, for there are many to tempt the palate. Plain Ales offerings went down especially well, although all were enjoyed across a range of maybe 5 on(?).

It was a quiet period as lunch had been and gone, and Semington was pretty dead - presumably now a commuter village and on weekdays the pub may not attract much custom?). However, on busy shifts (I trust there are some in the evenings and weekends), I imagine this pub would be a great meeting place and I hope it throngs to a jolly and satisfied clientele. We certainly found it useful en route via the canal, and certainly I for one would consider dropping back in if ever back in this vicinity.

Keep up the good work.

An excellent pub, A very attractive character building with several separate areas. Big supporters of Locale - local beers- all the staff are both very knowledgeable and friendly, Ales are very well kept and the food is both individual and excellent. Apparently Camra pub of the South West against strong opposition shows how good this place is
