Mendips inn with a coveted AA Rosette

Open all year

This smart stone-built inn stands on a corner in the middle of the village and from the landscaped garden you can see the village church and the Mendip Hills. Spacious yet cosy, old but contemporary, inside, the duck-egg blue interior features a display of over 20 clocks. The pub's own ale plus guests keep bar-top company with Worley's Red Hen and Mallets ciders. The award-winning food conforms to free-range, organic and local-sourcing principles so, even though the menus are brief, the dishes are certainly not short on quality. Consider a three-course meal of Wiltshire ham hock, soft boiled egg and watercress salad; slow-roast lamb rump, risotto and roast roots; and white chocolate cheesecake with raspberry coulis. The bar menu offers a good choice of sandwiches, steaks, pizzas, fish and chips and a ploughman’s.
