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.
To serve great food, 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 — not only is our great food homemade, but our ice cream is too.
Veryan’s training and experience as a cordon-bleu chef provides the foundation for our cooking, but we are building a great young team around our second chef, Ollie. Ollie’s passionate about great food presented and cooked to perfection, whether traditional favourites or more modern twists, so come along and enjoy! See a sample of our main menu here.
We usually keep five Real Ales on, including our “King George The Thirst” and George and the Dragon (both 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 15 miles away, but we have very local ciders “Stones,” “Pilton,” “Worley’s” and Orchard Pig, all produced within five miles away.
