Unchanged but modernised, we are just off the ancient Fosse Way. During the winter you can enjoy fine food and drink in front of a roaring log fire, whereas on balmy sunny summer days you might decide to go al fresco on our patio or in the tranquility of our picturesque suntrapped gardens!

Our Sunday Carvery is known throughout Somerset produced from local ingredients,  offering a wide choice of hand carved meats and freshly steamed vegetables as well as a vegetarian option.
