Contemporary country cooking in the Quantocks

AA Inspector

At a glance

Open all year
Credit cards accepted

The handsome former coaching inn is to be found in the town of North Petherton near Bridgwater, with the Quantock Hills not far. A traditional pub ambience prevails in the bar, and there is a cream-walled, airy dining room bright with fresh flowers and candles. Contemporary country cooking is the deal, ranging from salmon cured in beetroot and vodka, or richly dense duck liver parfait with plum chutney, to open, followed by pan-roasted cod with chorizo in a spinach and tomato ragù. Venison given the bourguignon treatment comes with winter greens and mash, and the finale might be crème brûlée laced with Tia Maria, served with coffee ice cream.
