This “lovely” thatched village pub opened in 1680 as an inn for passing travellers, and still makes a “delightful stopover” just off the A303 near Crewkerne. Ratings for its “high quality”, “classical” food have revived in the past 12 months under new owners backed by Nick Jones of Soho House (who also own the Beckford Arms at Tisbury and the Talbot Inn at Mells). Steve Hill and Michelle Payton, who ran it for 15 years, have retired to France.

This thatched 17th-century Somerset inn – a “lovely old, multi-roomed pub in a delightful village” – has been a haven of quality for 15 years under Steve Hill and Michelle Paynton. It has taken some flak of late for being “rather average” and pricey, in a year which saw the couple retire to France (in summer 2018). It now joins the Beckford Arms at Tisbury and the Talbot Inn at Mells under new owners, backed by Nick Jones of Soho House.

Quintessential Somerset inn with a “lovely traditional feeling”; it provoked the odd grumbling report this year, with “disjointed service” the main gripe, but on most accounts the cooking was well-rated.

A lovely, old village gastroboozer-with-rooms, whose “very atmospheric” interior is a big highlight. All aspects of the operation are well rated though – with “really imaginative food” matched by kitchen and dining room staff who “go out of their way to be helpful”.
