The Three Horseshoes Inn


Squirrelled away in the rural Batcombe Vale, this honey-coloured stone inn enjoys a peaceful position with a lovely rear garden overlooking the old parish church. The long and low-ceilinged main bar has exposed stripped beams, a huge stone inglenook with log fire, and is tastefully decorated, with pale blue walls hung with old paintings. From gleaming handpumps on the bar come pints of local brews including Plain Ales Innocence. Menus draw on the wealth of fresh seasonal produce available, including surplus vegetables from local allotments. Lunches take in sandwiches, simply grilled south coast sardines; and 'bunny' (that's locally shot) biryani'. Choice at dinner extends to cottage pie with Westcombe Cheddar mash; slow-roasted Somerset pork belly; and home-smoked braised brisket. Desserts include local rhubarb crumble cake; or a board of local cheeses.
