This stunning converted chapel (with rooms, artisan bakery and wine shop) was long in the hands of Catherine Butler, but in summer 2022 slotted into the Stay Original Company’s roster of SW boutique hotels and pubs. “For a small town Bruton has plenty of places to enjoy good food” – and, albeit “less fancy than the others”, this remains a safe choice for “straightforward, well-cooked fare” (including “a lovely lunch after a walk round the wonderful Newt” country estate).

This “beautiful” eighteenth-century chapel was converted 15 years ago into an all-day restaurant-with-rooms, artisan bakery and wine shop, centred around a “fantastic” modern dining room. (In August 2022, after our annual diners’ poll concluded, founder Catherine Butler sold the business to the Stay Original Company, which has five other boutique hotels and pubs in the southwest, and pledged to carry on without major changes).

This “wonderful space” – a “great conversion of an old chapel” (built in the eighteenth century and Grade II listed) – makes a perfect venue for “terrific breakfasts, with croissants and bread from their onsite bakery”, and other meals throughout the day.

“It caters for anything – coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner, casual or formal event” – say the many fans of this “clever conversion of a chapel” which is “worth a visit just for the amazing space, windows and views”. Top of its repertoire: the wood-fired “pizza is the best for miles” and “they have a great bakery too, but you need to get there early to get anything”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
