We’ve got an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce: simple food done well.

Kitchen Garden to Plate 

This is a place where everything is driven by produce from the garden -on any given day. The menus will change by the minute, depending on what the forager supplies and what our kitchen garden team deems to be in perfect condition.

Our food style is driven by home grown clarity of flavour, true to the seasons and influenced by location, tucked away in the heart of Somerset countryside.

Our commitment to a 25-mile menu not only supports our local suppliers, but means we can be 100% honest on the provenance of our ingredients.

Flat breads on the terrace

Straight from our wood-fired oven we serve delicious, smoky flat breads with a mix of delicious toppings to choose from!

What a great way to relax one afternoon, with a glass of wine (or two!) under the summer sunshine.

Available from 12pm - 5pm, served every day rain or shine.

Please speak to our Restaurant Manager if you have any questions about the menu, allergies or dietary requirements.
