Set in four acres of glorious countryside in the pretty hamlet of Lower Vobster, it is believed the inn originated in the 16th century and was used by King James II and his army of Royalists prior to the battle of Sedgemoor in 1685. For lunch, choose baked petit camembert, cranberry and toast; toasted bloomer bacon sarnie; or eggs fried in chorizo oil, hash browns and black pudding. On the main menu you may find scallop and squid ink risotto; wild boar sausage with apple mash; and roast rump of venison, beluga and bacon lentils. All desserts are home made like lemon posset with lemon curd; and orange and Oreo cheesecake with red wine syrup. Look out for their special events. Individually furnished bedrooms are available.
