AA Pick of the Pubs
Open all year
Set on a low ridge above the Chew Valley, this appealing old country pub enjoys gorgeous views across pastures and pocket woodlands. North Somerset is where most of the produce used to create the two AA-Rosette cuisine is sourced; beer from Butcombe Brewery is equally local. The brother and sister team of Josh and Holly Eggleton have built a tremendous reputation for invigorating menus based on a mantra of field-to-fork simplicity. Start with rabbit terrine, celeriac remoulade, apple and Butcombe chutney; followed by fillet of brill with brown shrimp, celery, Savoy cabbage and seaweed butter. To finish, try the sticky ale pudding with salted caramel sauce and stout ice cream.
