We're renowned for our friendly welcome, homemade food and a great selection of real ales and ciders.
At the foot of the Mendip Hills, two miles from Shepton Mallet and Wells, Somerset, we are within easy reach of Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Abbey, the Bath & West Showground, Cheddar Gorge, Longleat, Stourhead, Clarks Village, Wookey Hole Caves and Glastonbury Tor. There are great walks, cycle routes, climbing and caving opportunities at our doorstep — we’re dog friendly and muddy boots are welcome too.
We make nearly everything ourselves from local, natural and organic ingredients wherever possible. We use fresh game, forage for herbs and grow vegetables and fruit ourselves — as well as making our own great tasting ice creams!
Veryan’s training and experience as a cordon-bleu chef provides the foundation for our cooking, and she is supported by our head chef, Ian.
We always keep five Real Ales on, including national champion beers of Britain and our “King George The Thirst” (brewed with spring water exclusively for us by Blindman’s Brewery, just five miles away). We keep five local Somerset craft ciders as well. Our two best selling ciders are from Thatchers just 15 miles away, but we have a very local cider “88″ produced from 88 varieties of apples in an orchard just two miles away in Shepton Mallet.
