On Ilchester’s bustling town square, this handsome Georgian-fronted house oozes character. From the Yeovil Ales brewery supplying the beers to Orchard Pig cider, the pub proudly supports local producers and this extends to the busy restaurant. Somerset meat and fish delivered daily from Devon appear on the modern British menu. A typical meal might begin with a salad of home-smoked trout fillet with bacon, sherry vinegar and ruby chard and move on to baked rump of Somerset lamb with creamy garlic spinach, mint sauce and crushed latte potatoes. Time a visit for the Bank Holiday beer festivals.
