The Lord Poulett Arms

High Street, HINTON ST GEORGE, TA17 8SE

A pub since 1680, this handsome stone village inn has that certain something, from its thatched roof and secluded garden to the wisteria-draped pergola tucked in next to an old Fives court. Then inside, a magpie-mix of polished antique furniture distributed judiciously across timeworn boarded floors, shiny flagstones and a vast fireplace pumping out the heat into tastefully decorated rooms. The inner bar is popular with locals, not least because it dispenses pints of Butcombe, Otter and Trelawny, and West Country ciders straight from the cask. Food is a step or three above pub grub too, with starters such as Cornish mussels in curry and coconut sauce served with coriander flatbread. Follow this with roast rump of Somerset lamb with lamb shoulder shepherd's pie, Savoy cabbage and rosemary jus. The desserts can have unexpected flavours such as chai-infused pannacotta, pink grapefruit salad with sea salt and black pepper shortbread.
