This “excellent part of the Hauser & Wirth Somerset gallery, garden and cultural centre” was founded 10 years ago, as the opening gambit in the Swiss art dealership’s Artfarm hospitality wing, which now has venues from Scotland to Los Angeles, including The Groucho Club in London. Named after Dieter Roth, one of their stable of artists, it’s a “very attractive location”, with “efficient service, a generally laid-back, happy ambience and good, generous cooking”, using home-produced Durslade Farm ingredients.

This “canteen in a converted barn” with “one or two more upscale menu items – for example, smoked local trout and excellent Devon scallops, with very good chips” – is attached to the rural gallery of Swiss contemporary art dealers Hauser & Wirth, and is named after Dieter Roth: one of the artists they represent. The venue kick-started their Artfarm hospitality spin-off, which has spawned rather grander projects in Mayfair and Los Angeles, and last year snapped up London’s Groucho Club.

This “buzzy” bar and grill attached to the rural gallery of Swiss contemporary art dealers Hauser & Wirth offers “excellent food in a great setting” – the former cowshed of Durslade Farm. Named in honour of the artist Dieter Roth, it was created by his son and grandson, Bjorn and Oddur, using his signature scavenged materials. Menu highlights include beef and lamb reared on the farm, butchered on-site, dry-aged in their salt room and cooked over the wood fire.

Swiss art behemoths Hauser & Wirth’s “sophisticated” Somerset spin-off – with Piet Oudolf-designed gardens and a “wacky” ex-cowshed bar/grill – delivers a “delightful” taste of “urbe in rus”. A “really buzzy and vibrant setting” that’s “great for cocktails” and with some very solid cooking – in particular “lovely meat” (“outstanding” burgers and “amazing steaks aged in their own salt room”).

"Interesting venue, worth a look around whilst here. Part restaurant, bar, farm shop, gardens and art gallery. Food is wholesome and well prepared in a theatre kitchen. Lamb and beef are top tip, coming from the neighbour’s farm. Decent house wines, smiley service and an altogether happy experience!"
