Welcome to The Bower Inn, Bridgwater

The Bower Inn is a charming 18th-century pub, restaurant and hotel situated on the edge of the Somerset Levels near Bridgwater.

We have 15 boutique en-suite bedrooms, individually decorated in a modern country style and offering everything you need for the perfect stay, whether you’re in the area for business or enjoying a weekend getaway or staycation.

Inside you’ll find gorgeous, rustic interiors complete with exposed brick walls and wood flooring, and relaxed dining space for both intimate meals and larger gatherings. Outside, you can dine alfresco surrounded by stunning wildflowers in our large courtyard beer garden.

In the kitchen, our chefs work closely with local producers and suppliers to create stunning seasonal dishes, exciting takes on pub classics, and Bridgwater’s best Sunday roasts.

Come and use our new Pétanque court!

We have recently added a Pétanque court to our garden and it is open to all. If you would like to hire the court, please email or call us. Our team are always around to help, so if you are in the area, pop in and inquire at the bar.

If you’re planning an event, we offer a variety of private hire spaces for all sorts of occasions, from wedding and birthday parties in our large garden marquee to smaller meetings and gatherings in our private dining room.

The Bower is located 1.6 miles from the National Rail trains at Bridgwater, 2.1 miles from Bridgwater town centre and 3.3 miles from the M5 motorway, and is the ideal pitstop when exploring Somerset attractions like the Quantock Hills AONB, Clarks Village and Bridgwater Carnival.

We are proud to be dog-friendly, child-friendly and wheelchair-accessible.
